A group of about 20 community leaders gathered outside LBJ High School Tuesday afternoon to voice their opposition to the Austin school district’s $1.1 billion bond measure.
Some in the group have very different political views than others, but said they are unified in their desire to defeat the bond package that will go before Austin voters next month.
“This is not an east side versus west side thing,” said Pete Salazar, of the Johnston High School alumni group, who is opposed to school closures. He said building new schools is unnecessary. “This is a not a Republican versus Democrat thing. This is about doing the right thing.”
