Leander ISD Trustee Can't Remember Own History, Is Endorsed by Far-Left State Rep UPDATED

 Awkward Campaign Moments...

Apparently Leander Independent School District Trustee Pam Waggoner has met the approval of far-left Democrat State Representative Donna Howard.  Waggoner is touting Representative Howard's endorsement on her campaign website.

Howard, who is herself endorsed by the AFL-CIO, has received 100% ratings from NARAL Pro-Abortion America and environmental groups, and garners ratings of 45% from the Texas Association of Business, 6% on Personal Liberty issues, and 0% on 2nd Amendment Rights.   Howard makes a habit of endorsing lefty Democrats, and in the past threw her support to Diana Maldonado and Matt Stillwell.  (Both lost in 2010 and 2012 respectively.)

Trustee Pam Waggoner also seems to mix up her own political history.  According to her website, she was:
"Leander ISD Board of Trustees, 2002-2008. Re-elected to the board 2009 to current."
The truth is that Waggoner was defeated in the 2008 election by Trustee Will Streit, but ran again and was re-elected in 2010, not 2009 as her website states.

Yikes, that's almost as bad as forgetting that you were born in New Mexico, not Texas.

In case you missed it, Jim MacKay of Cedar Park has filed to run against Waggoner, and the major campaign issue at hand is the horrific state of the Leander ISD's financial affairs.   Waggoner has been on the board intermittently since 2002, and doesn't seem too concerned about the $2.7 billion debt owed by Leander/Cedar Park taxpayers.  Maybe she thinks Obama will pay it out of his stash.?

UPDATE:  Oh my, it seems Ms. Waggoner scrubbed her website over the weekend.  Representative Donna Howard's endorsement has disappeared, and Waggoner's dates of service have been corrected.  Still no mention of the 2008 defeat.

Finger in the air, tell the people what they want to hear. :-( Thanks, Holly, for pulling back the curtain.
