How It All Began
August 2019: I knew I wanted to announce my candidacy at a meeting of the Fannin County Women’s (and Men’s) Club. I had not decided when. After a speech by Gary Thomas, who is running for the Texas House of Representatives District 62, during the August meeting I felt the time was right. Not sure I was ready for the warm reception to the news. For better or worse the journey begins.
September 2019: A friend from Grayson County Democrats convinced me to run for the State Board. Seemed fitting to have my first major speech before this group. I now know I can’t speak off the cuff and get my message across. Thanks to all who listened to my rambling and offered constructive criticism. I promise I will heed your advice. The Educating Brenda Tour has begun.
August 2019: When I was asked to run for the State Board of Education, my first thought was hmmm NO. I was asked to think about it. After serious consideration, I thought why not. I felt fairly sure I had a lot to offer. What I did not know is I have a lot to learn. The journey begins on Educating Brenda. Hope you enjoy the ride.
