MISD bond canvassed – despite the ongoing voting investigation

Local

Midland County is left with more questions than answers after Tuesday’s canvassing of the MISD school bond. The over 800 vote disparity from election night on November 5th is one of them.

I’m compltey confident there are no mssing votes. I’m compltely confident we coutned every vote casted in this electionl. I do not believe for a second that 841 something votes were missing obsconded or anything else.

Rick Davis, President MISD Board

Texas law requires that the bond recounted on Friday be canvassed Tuesday, rgardless of the ongoing investigation of the $569 million bond that will revamp, renovate and remodel Midland schools. MISD will operate as if the bond has passed.

Those opposed to the bond, and those who wanted to wait until the investigation had concluded, were forced to vote yes.

I’m compltey confident there are no mssing votes. I’m compltely confident we coutned every vote casted in this electionl. I do not believe for a second that 841 something votes were missing obsconded or anything else.

Other questions include: How and why was there a vote disparity? What is there are missing votes — and it turns out the bond did not pass? Whose fault is it?

Midland county is solely responsible for the conduct of the election. Any problems that occured are our responibility not of MISD. As we previously stated, we don’t know why yet there was a disparity but we are working ahrd to find an answer
