2019 Propositions on November 5 Ballot

Our saying here at the Conroe Chamber is to “Get REV’D Up” this Fall as we vote on a lot of interesting propositions, not only in regards to the school bonds.  REV stand for the following:

  1. Getting registered (the deadline has passed, so we hope you handled that!).
  2. Educating yourself (doing the due diligence to find the facts and how they relate to you, your family and your business).
  3. Getting out the vote (either by participating in early voting which starts on October 21 or voting ultimately on November 5).

In today’s blog post, we share the actual verbiage that will be on the ballot here in Conroe.  Give these a read, do some research if need be, and get ready to cast your votes!
