Dear DRC Members,
This Saturday, June 16, Dallas County voters will elect the Dallas Independent School District trustee for District 9 in a run-off election.
Voting in local elections has an outsized impact. Past Dallas ISD trustee elections have been decided by as few as 400 votes, so every vote counts. Last May, only 7.8% of registered voters in Dallas turned out to the polls, selecting the leaders who make decisions on behalf of the 2.55 million residents in Dallas County.
Dallas ISD has made tremendous progress over the last several years with innovative programs, from the opening of 23 early college academies (where students can graduate high school with a two-year associate’s degree), to the launch of full-day pre-school for 4-year-olds and half-day for 3-year-olds, to the improvement in the quality of education for all students, including turning around virtually all 43 “Improvement Required” schools in Dallas ISD in the past four years.
Continuing this momentum is paramount if we want to have the community and workforce necessary to continue to grow Dallas’ economic success.
Please remember to vote this Saturday, June 16, and encourage your colleagues, friends, and family members to do so as well.
All best wishes,
President and CEO
Dallas Regional Chamber
