Meet the 2020 Democratic Candidates Series - Event #1: Rebecca Bell-Metereau - SBOE District 5
Time & Location
About The Event
Rebecca is committed to taking "a fresh look at the skills and tools needed to solve 21st century problems, including global warming and environmental devastation, challenges to democracy, rampant worldwide income inequality, and political strife." She is asking voters to "remember the slogan, 'Think globally, act locally,' as we tackle problems that affect not only the nation, but the entire globe. Now, more than ever, we have an opportunity to shape the future of Texas and the planet through our choices in public education."
