Hopes Run High as Bryan ISD Awaits Final Results of Bond Election

Bryan and some Robertson County voters went to the polls on Tuesday to cast their ballots in the November 3rd election that included a $175 million bond.  After the polls closed on election day and votes counted for all 25 polling places in Brazos County and one in Robertson County the result was 17,018 (50.42%) votes for and 16,736 (49.58%) votes against.  While those numbers did include early votes it does not include mail-in ballots so it has not been finalized.

While it was not the hoped for landslide favorable vote that had been hoped for by Bryan ISD they remain optimistic that the final result will be “For” even if it’s close.  This morning Bryan ISD Public Information Office Hugo Ibarra and Executive Director of Communications and Public Affairs Matthew LeBlanc were in our studio to share their thoughts on the result of the election and the plans going forward.  If the bond passes the path will be clear and will follow the road map already put in place by a steering committee. If the bond fails the steering committee will consider options, which might include more public education and trying again in next year.
Regardless of the outcome of the election the needs will not change and the funding for projects such as building a new Intermediate School simply cannot come from tax revenue which is already earmarked for day to day operations.
