The Battle Lines Have Never Been Clearer for GCISD Run-Off Race
If you live in Grapevine Colleyville School District and you want to push back against progressive activism in our schools, you need vote for Amy Putnam on Saturday. Push back against the out-of-control tax hikes, indoctrination of our students, and the Culture of Voting effort to block vote against Republicans who are demanding property tax reform. The lines have never been clearer. Just look at who is supporting each candidate.

Amy Putman in her own words on why she is running.
“I also want to restore accountability and transparency to the district. Rather than continue to point fingers at the state Legislature and other government entities when it comes to the tax problem, I believe we need to own and work on our end of the problem. The board is 100 percent responsible for setting the tax rate, controlling the ‘revenue’ and ultimately how much we pay in taxes. The district should pass a formal resolution demanding an end to Robin Hood in the next legislative session, but also start a public discussion about our own spending and debt management practices. That’s something you never hear today. There is just a demand for more and more taxpayer money when the results haven’t proven we are making the best use of what we have today.”
In the last election this race came down to just four votes! Your vote matters!
