Like a rising spectre of doom, the "1 Katy PAC" has placed itself in the middle of yet another election.

Funded by those who feed off of KISD taxes (vendors, construction companies, sign salesmen, home builders, realtors, etc.) (See contributors below), this group of KISD residents, seeks to keep the incumbent school board members (Bryan Michalsky and Charles Griffin) in office. And never mind that their challengers, Leonard Ledford and John Pendergraff) are far more competent.

Spectral bodies like this one are prone to not know too much about issues, but speak up with unknowledgeable opinions about all things anyway.

Although organized as a local PAC to support bond referenda, the 1 Katy PAC has recently morphed into a State level general purpose PAC which is fine with me as they will now have to file their reports with the Texas Ethics Commission.

Here are the names of the PAC's "board" members: 

Stephanie Click

John Eberlan

Richard Grassau

Liz Johnson

Patti Lacy

Lisa Martinez

Melissa Nixon

Dorsey Reese

Anthony Rivera

Jacquie Smith

Lyn Sullivan

Barbara Vass
