A few of us are going down to be observers and to show the ‘fiscal sanity’ flag in Austin, this Saturday. If it sounds like it’s all ‘save our Schools’ rally is ‘for the kids’, you need to know something about the people behind it:
Who is behind the Save Texas Schools Rally?
Billed as a non-partisan demonstration, the folks behind the Save Texas Schools rally are gearing up for a big event at the Texas Capitol this Saturday to “demand that our lawmakers put education first.”
While it sounds nice on the surface, this event is a red herring designed to prop up unions and distract from the massive waste of tax dollars happening in Texas school districts.
Fred Lewis sits on the steering committee for this event and is in charge of “Strategic Partnerships” for the event. Of course, Lewis is none other than man behind Harris County’s voter fraud scandal that erupted last year.
Lewis founded the left-wing Texans Together Education Fund, the organization that spawned Houston Votes, which was described as an ACORN-style group that committed rampant voter fraud in Harris County last year.
Lewis’ former associate at another left-wing group, Campaigns for People, is Brian Donovan, who now heads fundraising for the Save Texas Schools rally. Donovan also previously worked for the Travis County Democratic Party.
Hundreds of school districts have signed on as supporters of this rally — if you see your district listed HERE, then send your board members a copy of our Red Apple Project Fact Sheet . Show them how cuts can — and should — be made to the bloated school administrations so that tax dollars can be used in the classrooms, where they belong.
