YISD Superintendent Causes Stir, Saying ‘Someone Else Has To Worry About Taxpayers’? [VIDEO]
The Ysleta Independent School District wants voters to say yes to an almost half billion dollar bond election in May, but it was something Superintendent Xavier De La Torre said about the taxpayers who would be paying for that bond election that raised some eyebrows. De La Torre was talking to faculty at Scotsdale on Thursday when he said, "I will take care of you (teachers) and our children (students), someone else has to worry about the taxpayers."
De La Torre was asked by ABC 7's Stephanie Valle what he meant, and he said it was taken out of context. Considering the amount of money he is asking from taxpayers, it's hard to believe that he thinks any context in which he says taxpayers aren't his concern would be ok.
YISD taxpayers, what do you think about the Superintendent's comments?
