Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

October 30, 2006

Texas State Board of Education Candidates

District Democrat Libertarian
1 René Nuñez (I)    
3 Rick Agosto
  Tony Cunningham
4 Lawrence A.
5   Bill Oliver Ken Mercer
9 Maggie Charleton   Don McLeroy (I)
10   Martin Thomen Cynthia Dunbar
12   Matthew Havener Geraldine
‘Tincy’ Miller
15   Brandon Stacker Bob Craig (I)


  1. Unfortunately, there are 4 Libs running against 4 Repubs, and only 2 Dems against 2 Repubs. The Libs may have a sensible point of view about vouchers, but the sensibility peters out after that: the Lib party platform is nuts.
    It seems that some Lib candidates are just looking for a way to get elected: one of the Lib school board candidates, Thomen, started out some years ago as an Alan Keyes Repub, then just last year was a Dem party activist in Austin, and now is a Badnarik Lib. Kind of opportunistic? It seems reasonable to hope that any candidate will have a consistent viewpoint, not to mention really believe in all of the party platform, not just what fits in each election.

  2. Good points. What I find so disappointing is that the Democrats didn’t put anyone up in some of the races. The Libertarians managed to get nearly 30% of the vote without endorsements, and some without even a website. Of course, Charleton did actually campaign and still only came up with 40% of the vote.
