Clear Lake, TX – With early voting beginning on April 24th, and election day set for Saturday. May 6th, Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) will introduce their Bond, Vote YES for CCISD PAC and  Citizens for CCISD PAC will participate in an open forum at 7:00 PM, on April 18, 2017 (Social begins at 6:30 PM).  Both of the PAC organizations will discuss the pros and cons of the proposed CCISD $487 Million Dollar Bond at the Harris County Clear Lake Park Recreation Building 5001 Nasa Road 1 Seabrook, TX 77586.

The Clear Lake Area Republicans PAC will host the event, and anticipates a large turnout.

Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) Deputy Superintendent of Business and Support Services Paul McLarty and Executive Director of Communications, Elaina Polsen will introduce the Bond.  Jonathan Cottrell representing Vote YES for CCISD PAC will be presenting in support of the Bond.  Presenting a case in opposition of the Bond will be Connie Ratisseau representing Citizens for CCISD PAC.

Following the opening remarks, Charles Blain with Empower Texans  will moderate a Q & A session where forum attendees will be able to submit questions to the panel.

The Clear Creek Independent School District is home to 44 schools, 5,000 employees, more than 41,000 students. The district spans 103 square miles, 13 municipalities and 2 counties (Harris and Galveston).

School officials justify the bond to keep pace with rising enrollments, aging schools, safety improvements, student programs, and technology. Taxpayers claim that financial mismanagement and poor student performance do not merit more money.  “I am being taxed out of my home,” said Rudy Balciunas a 20+ year resident of Clear Lake.

Per Smartasset.com, Texas homeowner pays the 4th highest effective property taxes nationwide.”  Zillow reports “that in Harris county an average homeowner pays $5,466 in property taxes almost double the National Average – $ 2,823.”
