Monroe running for right reasons

PORT ARTHUR — James Monroe is my choice for the PAISD School Board.  Jim is running for all the right reasons. He is able to contribute to the community and is willing to do so. Jim has experience in education and in business, including finance which is a major challenge all over Texas.

The PAISD has made great strides in all areas the last few years. Academics are showing improvements, as are other areas such as discipline. Facilities have been replaced or improved. More improvement is still necessary, however. The PAISD Board has made huge progress over the previous times. We do not want to go back to the “bad old days.” Jim is a person who will work cooperatively with the other board members and the superintendent while ably advocating for the needs of the students, parents, teachers and the community.

Jim comes from a family who supports education. His father, Madison Monroe, was the “father” of what is now Lamar State College - Port Arthur and his brother, Sam Monroe, is present of that institution. In the family tradition Jim has engaged in and support education all his life. Let’s help him to step into a new role as a trustee to allow the community to use his talents and willingness to serve so that we can continue the progress and move forward into the future.

Early voting continues through May 10, the election is May 14. Please vote for the future of Port Arthur by voting for James Monroe for the PAISD School Board.
