Have you seen this unusual sign next to Texas High? Large banner says Christ is against TISD bond election's Proposition A

Nov 7, 2022

A large sign inches away from Texas High School on the corner of Kennedy Lane and Summerhill Road has people talking about Christ and the absurdly expensive $189 million TISD bond election package ($365 million, including amortized interest at 4.35%).

The bottom of the banner lists a group called "East Texas Christians Against Oppressive Taxes" paid for the sign, and the group has also distributed yard signs. 

At the bottom of the large banner, the well-known scripture Romans 12:12 is written. It says: "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."

Signs and billboards in Tyler, too

Texarkana is not the only city that "East Texas Christians Against Oppressive Taxes" has targeted for its disapproval. A bond election for a new $160 million courthouse in Smith County has also drawn the group's ire.

Radio station KNUE said it confirmed the Christian group was a political action committee (PAC). It said yard signs and banners have been seen throughout Tyler, Texas, and around Smith County.

The irony of it all

Texarkana ISD is promoting Proposition A and Proposition B, but the school district has faced the most criticism for its dishonesty regarding the $130 million Proposition A. In fact, some bond election opponents have suggested the Christ banner is a well-deserved comeuppance for a school district like TISD that has been untruthful in the election.

TISD and superintendent Doug Brubaker have been misleading the public and oddly promising the same safety and security measures in the bond election that were already paid for in June. You can read more about the school district's lies by clicking here.

Voters will decide tomorrow

Early voting is over, and citizens will make their voices heard tomorrow, November 8.

The massive spending proposal is six and a half times larger than any previous TISD bond issue. In addition, it is almost five times larger than any city, county, or school district bond election in the history of Bowie County.

Voters have been questioning why the school district wants to raise property taxes on citizens right now when construction costs are at an all-time high, and many people have been forced to find second and third jobs to make ends meet.
