Since the MISD bond failed, does anyone know what that means for the future Ranchland country club? I went ahead and joined the club a month ago since initiation fees were so low, hoping it would be around for at least a few years. Now it seems likely it will be but no one seems to know for sure.

Thoughts? Anyone with actual inside knowledge of the situation?

It'll be a long while before anything gets built there. For the moment, MISD still owns the property and are leasing it back to previous owners.

I'm still flabbergasted the bond didn't pass.

I call BS

The recount final numbers didn't line up with the original by 800+ votes.

This fight is long from over.

Channel 9 has a video of the board meeting. Watch it. They certified the vote. Done deal.

Board meeting? As in school board? Why would they be able to to certify anything?

Quick scan of channel 9s webpage has the following articles.

If someone certified the results you can fully expect legal action to tie things up until someone answers the vote total question.

Just some context...as I have heard....

The county did purchase new voting machines to comply with paper ballot trail recommendations.

Rumored certain precinct electronic vote tallies double counted in the initial result totals.

I watched a Facebook live video of the Board meeting. I figured it was recorded. I guess not. Channel 7 or 2 might have a video, not sure.
