Brownsville ISD trustee to serve on TASB advisory committee



Brownsville Independent School District trustee Daniella Lopez Valdez said she will use her election to the Legislative Committee of the Texas Association of School Boards to advocate directly to state leaders in Austin for full funding for Texas public schools.

Lopez Valdez was elected to the committee at TASB’s Summer Leadership Institute in San Antonio a week ago. Speaking with The Brownsville Herald on Tuesday, she said the appointment comes at a critical time for Texas public schools, with the Legislature still holding onto billions of dollars in funding for public schools in a showdown with Gov. Greg Abbott over vouchers


“I have the passion for it and I believe that we have to speak up. I think I can talk to people on both sides of the aisle,” she said of serving on the committee.
“We go up to Austin and we sit with the education committees in the House and in the Senate, and we know who is for and who’s against, and we help draft our priorities and we take our priorities to every single legislator who’s going to make a decision and tell them what our priorities are, which is to invest in students and keep local control,” she said.
