Dallas, TX – The Dallas County Republican Party (DCRP) Executive Committee passed a resolution Monday against the Dallas County Schools (DCS) Proposition A on the November 7, 2017 Constitutional Amendment Ballot. The resolution was passed unanimously by members of the Executive Committee. Chairman Phillip Huffines had this to say:
“Do not be misled by the name of Dallas County Schools. DCS is not to be confused with the Dallas Independent School District (DISD). DCS does not operate a single school nor does it educate students. In fact, DCS is a dangerous bus vendor bureaucracy that must go,” said Chairman Phillip Huffines. “DCS is millions of dollars in debt due to reckless deals and botched pay down schemes orchestrated by their management. DCS is ripping off Dallas County taxpayers and diverting dollars that could better serve our students. The buses are chronically late and there are alarming records of student safety complaints and violations. If you are concerned about Dallas County’s government accountability and student safety vote “Against” the Dallas County Schools Proposition A on November 7th.”
Voting “Against” DCS Bus Service Proposition A is a nonpartisan issue championed by Dallas Republican State Senator Don Huffines (SD-16) during the 85th Legislative Session and supported by Mayor Rawlings and two (2) DISD trustees. A vote “Against” the bus service would trigger a gradual wind down and the distribution of current assets to local districts who already contract elsewhere or run their own transportation service. The proposition will appear last on all ballots. Early voting is from October 23, 2017 to November 3, 2017 and the Constitutional Amendment Election will be held on November 7, 2017.
