Wondrous news!  Barbara Cargill as present chair of the Texas State Board of Education was voted out of the Senate Nominating Committee today on a vote of 5 TO 0.  Now her name will go forward to the full Texas Senate for an up-or-down vote on her final confirmation.  The vote probably will be this coming Wednesday, 2.20.13.  Barbara will not testify before the full Senate.  

Here are the individual results from the Texas Senate Nominating Committee today:


Texas Senate Nominating Committee


Sen. Glenn Hegar – Chair — yea

Sen. Donna Campbell – Vice Chair — yea

Sen. John Carona — absent

Sen. Troy Frazier — yea

Sen. Jane Nelson — yea

Sen. Kirk Watson  — yea

I was told that the e-mails sent by the public to the Senators have been running heavily in favor of Barbara Cargill. I am proud of my fellow Texans for realizing that the children educated in our public schools today will become the future of our state tomorrow.  


We need to thank the members of the Senate Nominating Committee who voted Barbara’s name out of Committee today, and we also need to thank Gov. Rick Perry for choosing Barbara as his pick for the Chair of the SBOE.



Now we must contact all of our Texas Senators and tell them that we expect them to vote for Barbara Cargill when her name comes up for a vote on the floor of the Senate.  Here is the link to the Texas Senators and their e-mail addresses:http://www.txdirectory.com/online/txsenate/
