ARGYLE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS ARE VERY IMPORTANT AS WELL.
CALL OR EMAIL THOSE WHO ARE RUNNING AND ASK WHERE THEY STAND ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER.
Thankfully we have taken care of the CSCOPE issue now a key issue is the safety and security of our children in Argyle schools.
The Cross Timbers Gazette asked each candidate in a contested race to answer a short questionnaire to help you make an informed decision at the polls. Here are their responses:
A total of five candidates filed for two at-large seats in the Argyle ISD.
The three-year terms of Trustee Steven Moore and the unoccupied seat of former school board member Brenda Alexander are up this May.
Along with Moore seeking another term, new faces include Greg Aune, Steve Merka, Brian Ratcliff and Brian Kanzaki.
Age: 52, Married to Karen Aune, with four children: Austin (19), Turner (14) Chad (12) Carrie (9)
City/Town of Residence: Argyle since 2007
Current Occupation: Owner, GA Sports Management, Inc.
Education: University of Texas at Austin 1983, Marketing and Management Degree
To what civic and religious organizations do you belong? Argyle United Methodist Church
Why should you be elected? Argyle has many great families and attributes that attracted my family to live here. The values of this community are important. Therefore, maintaining them and always striving to improve are the main reasons I am running for the AISD school board. My values and passion to make our district the best in Texas for all the kids is the driving force behind me seeking a seat on the school board. I have four children who have/are attending all four campuses of Argyle and would like to see this district ranked number 1 in the State of Texas for education.
What are the main challenges facing your town and how would you resolve them? Argyle has many challenges ahead. Finance of the district and technology are two areas that are in the forefront. How we deal with these issues now will set our district for years to come. It will be important to work closely with all the resources of the Town of Argyle to maximize the revenue and growth through different avenues. There are many districts that are dealing with the same issues we are encountering (Robin Hood tax, low corporate taxes and extremely motivated families) and there are successful solutions that are already being utilized today in existing schools. The state of Texas will not fix our financial problem and we as a community must find alternatives to creating the best education for ALL the students in Argyle.
With the changes of technology utilization in the classroom the board and administrators must provide a safe and secure system to students and teachers while providing access to the students who do not have smartphones or computers for everyday use. Technology has many fingers and needs to have a clear policy on what is the proper use and conduct of such devices and needs to be clearly communicated to all teachers, parents and students.
The only way we get to be the best is through the team work of everyone in Argyle. There are hard decisions that must be made in the next few years that will affect our schools and district and I will face them with diligence, integrity and accountability to all the families within the Argyle ISD. Everyone must be given the tools to succeed but also must be held to high standard of ethics, accountability and integrity in order for our district to face the problems ahead.
Steven Moore (I)
City/Town of Residence: Bartonville
Current Occupation: Crew Supervisor, Oncor Electric Delivery
Education: Some college, no degree. Four years technical training.
To what civic and religious organizations do you belong? Member of West Main Church of Christ Lewisville
Why should you be re-elected? My experience thru service on the board. My common sense approach to the issues faced by our district.
What are the main challenges facing your district and how would you resolve them? 1. The districts financial state. 2. Attracting and retaining great staff. If we can maintain these when growth is slow, we will be better prepared when growth returns. 3. Finding solutions for campuses that become overcrowded. We as a board have committees in place to help find solutions to some of these challenges.
City/Town of Residence: Argyle
Current Occupation: Co-owner and Vice President at Entegral Solutions
Education: BS in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M
To what civic and religious organizations do you belong? Committee for Argyle Young Life, Board of Directors for Canyon Falls Municipal Utility District
Why should you be elected? We moved to Argyle for the small community and the schools; I wanted to give my kids a similar experience to what I had growing up. We made a great decision, and I want to be a part of keeping it great. Throughout my career, and now as a small business owner, I have worked with schools and have a good handle on the challenges administrators and boards have with school finance and facilities. With that, my desire is to serve with no agendas and no motive other than to listen and provide whatever insight I have that is relevant.
What are the main challenges facing your district and how would you resolve them? The biggest challenges besides the known, and common, budget issues are the growth coming in the near term and school security. Canyon Falls and Harvest are now a reality, bringing thousands of homes into AISD over the next 10 years or so. The influx of kids will not be immediate, but they may come before we have the new facilities available for them. Now is a critical time in Argyle ISD’s growth, as we need to work closely with the town of Argyle to bring the right amount of commercial development to increase the tax base and provide needed funding for facilities and other infrastructure. In terms of school security, I want to make sure we address it appropriately and reasonably. If we do this right, AISD will stay strong and remain a coveted place to send our kids to school.
