Educators Meet the Candidates

by Ramonica R. Jones

Only one candidate showed up for a State Senate Forum Monday night at Angelina College in Lufkin.

Bob Reeves is one of four candidates for State Senate District 3. He talked to a group of East Texas educators and community leaders about education in Texas.

Public funding, vouchers, the No Child Left Behind program, and other issues affecting Texas schools were the focus of the discussion.

Reeves' opponents are Republican candidates Frank Denton, Dave Kleimann, and Robert Nichols.

That seat is currently held by Republican Todd Staples.
