Around the county, Grand Prairie ISD’s tax increase vote also passed, 68 percent to 32 percent. The district’s election to approve a $91 billion bond proposal to renovate existing schools and build new schools passed 76 percent to 24 percent, and it’s bond refund proposal vote passed 75 percent to 25 percent. Rockwall ISD’s bond package also passed, 65 percent to 35 percent.
The City of Richardson had four proposals and all passed, as did all seven of McKinney’s. Mesquite’s street bond also passed, 84 percent to 16 percent. And I’m not sure what exactly was going on with the Wilmer Municipal Utility District, but 1 precinct of 1 precinct reported one whole vote for all five propositions, and that one person voted yes.
