So Who Winds Up With Edwin Flores's $10,000 Check From EducateDallas PAC Now?

More or less moments after Edwin Flores announced he wouldn't be running for another term as Dallas Independent School District trustee, a Friend of Unfair Park wondered: "Is he going to give Educate Dallas their money back?" Referring, of course, to the $10,000 pledge made by the Dallas Regional Chamber-connected political action committee that endorsed Flores before it had the chance to sit down with his then-rival, Michael Greenberg. Mark Melton, the tax attorney who's co-chairing the PAC, told me yesterday, "Edwin decided to withdraw from the race before we funded our $10,000 pledge."

I asked Melton about the dough because District 1 school board candidate Greenberg -- who, full disclosure, is a first-year DISD dad at the same school my third-grade son attends -- sent word yesterday that he's posted to his campaign website his EducateDallas questionnaire for all to read. Writes he by way of explanation: "I think it is important to understand the questions various groups or PACs are asking the candidates and it is important for you to know my responses." Intriguingly, Greenberg's posted a second "candidate survey" requested by something called DallasKidsFirst, described here as "a non-partisan group of concerned citizens and parents that believes every kid in Dallas deserves access to quality public schools" and is likewise on the hunt for school board reps. Anyway.

I asked Melton yesterday if EducateDallas would be cutting one of the other District 1 candidate a check. Because right now there are two would-bes: Greenberg and registered nurse-turned-stay-at-home-mom Jennifer Levy, for whom I've left a message as she doesn't appear to have a website yet. (And word is a third candidate will emerge before the 5 p.m. Monday filing deadline.) Wrote Melton: "As for the contenders in District 1, we have invited all of them to meet with our board in the coming weeks."

Fine, pal, thanks for asking. But I'm still around for a few more days -- as I noted on the blog earlier in the week, methinks Monday's my last day. Covering the bridge festivities this weekend, and I do wanna stick around for the old Dallas High School briefing at Economic Development Monday morning. So there's that. And I gotta get all this stuff outta my office. Maybe one of the DISD board candidates has a truck I can borrow?

Ask EducateDallas.  They seem to be in a giving mood - and at least one of them's bound to own a pick-up.
