Third time's a charm for Robinson ISD bond

Robinson ISD tries to pass a bond for the third time and it passes by the skin of its teeth.

By 19 votes Robinson ISD passes its school bond 1037 for and 1018 against in Saturday's bond election. This is the third time the district has tried to pass the bond so they can build an intermediate school and make repairs to the elementary school. Laura Crawford is the president of the School Board and says even if it wouldn't have passed, they would have tried again.

"Oh absolutely and a 5th time and a 6th and a 10th and a 12th to give up would be giving up on the kids and we'll never do that. Rocket's never quit," Crawford said.

"We want to put them all in one building. Right now they're walking between five building to go to lunch, and gym and the library. Just the safety factor if nothing else. Having all the kids in one location so it's going to be so so great to be able to have that and have a new facility for them," Crawford said.

The bond will raise an average of 268 dollars per Robinson homeowner per year.

Other school bonds also passed including Rogers, Caldwell, Cameron, Lometa, Normangee, North Zulch and Centerville.

Clifton, Somerville and Navsota ISD's did not pass their elections. Somerville lost by 10 votes, 207- 197. Clifton ISD tied 380-380. The district will have a recount and if the tie remains, the bond fails because it does not reach a majority.
