The Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation held a forum with the Texas House District 41 in McAllen to focus on public education.
Officials said the forum opened the conversation for candidates to understand what the schools in the community need.
“We have these cards where people can write their questions. We don’t get to ask those questions. We will send them to the candidates. We will follow back with them,” said Giovanni Eacobedo.
A second forum will be held Feb. 13 with candidates for the Texas House District 36 at the Mission Event Center at 6 p.m.
