CHRISTIE BYBEE - Current Eanes ISD Board Member (Place 1)
"After careful consideration of the two candidates running for my seat, I am thrilled to endorse John Troy for Place 1. John is engaging, smart, authentic, a team player, an entrepreneur and a native Texan. He will bring a wealth of experience to the board (both professionally and personally) as well as his unwavering commitment and passion for public education.
As I considered who to endorse, it became clear to me that a voice was missing on the board, the voice of our elementary parents. No current board members have elementary age children. While the role of the board member is to advocate for ALL children, I absolutely believe we need the voice of our elementary community at the dais. One could argue that all current trustees have been through the elementary experience and can make informed decisions on their behalf. While that statement is true, school is very, VERY different than when your current trustees were at their various elementary schools and now more than ever, we need a current elementary parent to be at the table.
It is time for a new voice on the board with new perspectives and new ideas that will work to continue to set Eanes apart from other districts across the country, to be the leader it has been in public education throughout the years. That new voice is John Troy. He will serve our district with integrity, thoughtfulness, and transparency."
CORD SHIFLET - WHS alum and EISD parent
"I hope other Westlake families will join me in supporting John Troy for Eanes ISD school board. There are several things I like about the guy ... but the one compelling reason I think he deserves our votes is he would be the ONLY board member with children in elementary school. I think it's important all levels of the schools have a voice at the table and we can't overlook our elementary schools.
I also appreciate his vast knowledge of Charter schools and vouchers, that he understands and supports that our district does not need those things.
John has served on school boards since he was 30 years old ... before he was married or had children. He's passionate about schools and would be a welcome voice to our community."
JENNY AGHAMALIAN - EEF, Envision Eanes Co-Chair
"John and I have served on two committees to date and I am increasingly impressed with his skill set and point of view. Our youngest students are navigating remote and in person school environments that are different than anything experienced previously. The burdens on teachers and parents are unique this year and every viewpoint is helpful to the conversation and decision making process. The board and community would be well-served to elect John!"
VICKY ABNEY - former EISD teacher
and parent of WHS grads
"Paul and I have known John's family through our church since they moved here 7 years ago. I am confident he will support our students, teachers, and parents. He will be a great representative of our community's values and a great advocate for the future of Westlake. Finally, as a taxpayer, I know John will manage Eanes' finances responsibly and treat every tax dollar as his own."
DAVID BARRUTIA - Envision Eanes
"John Troy is a world-class education expert, and he has already proven to be a level-headed and transformative figure in our district-level elementary school community leadership."
PAOLA CAMACHO-BANSAL - EISD Spanish Immersion
"I worked with John Troy in the SI Committee Task Force, visiting schools and listening to many teachers and parents in order to discover the best practices for our program. I know how much he cares for this program, how much he cares for our schools, and how much he values diversity. Please vote for John!"
SCOTT RAMSOWER - Senna Hills HOA President
and EISD Parent
"John Troy has been my best friend for 22 years. Does that make me biased? Maybe. But, does that qualify me to know that John would be great for our school board? Absolutely! We worked in finance together in NYC when he was an investment banker. He now runs his own business. He's highly qualified for us to trust him with our district's finances. He has also worked and volunteered in public education for over a decade. He started a student organization focused on Servant Leadership in college and it still exists today. He's passionate about education and Eanes. He's also an all around great guy!"
