These are the members of the school board who will vote in favor of science: Mary Helen Berlanga, Bob Craig, Mavis Knight, Rene Nunez, Bruce Beckman, and maybe Lawrence Allen.
[I was initially told that Pat Hardy supported evolution, but was advised later that she believes creationism to be equal to evolution; whereas her Libertarian opponant, Bruce Beckman is adamantly against teaching the creation myth at all.]
Also please support Linda Ellis who is running as a Write In Candidate against Barbara Cargill (Woodlands). The science community (all teachers and educators) should get behind her and help her with her campaign. If we can start replacing the right wingers then your letters and research will not fall on deaf ears. Linda Ellis: The WRITE -IN CANDIDATE FOR THE RIGHT Reason.
You have our permission to share this letter with as many in your field as possible. Let's get the word out on these "goons" that have taken over the SBOE. Also, if you know anyone in the Beaumont district of David Bradley tell them to support Laura Ewing. It is imperative that we take hacks like David Bradley out of the decision making at the state level of education. Read the Texas Monthly article written this month about the State Board. It's very telling and it's about time.
