Eric Mahroum is a solid conservative. I rarely support candidates unless I am 100% sure they will do what they campaign on. I have no doubt Eric will do a great job for the children of Texas. We need more like him.
— Jonathan Stickland, State Representative (District 92)
I support Eric Mahroum because he is a strong supporter of local control of education, more opportunities for vocational education, and multiple pathways to a high school diploma. Eric is a solid conservative, who will work to improve the quality of education in Texas. He recognizes the critical role good teachers and a sound curriculum play in preparing young Texans for a successful future.
— Tom Pauken, Former Chairman (Republican Party of Texas) and Former Chairman (Texas Workforce Commission)
(Incumbent) Pat Hardy has opted not to serve on the committee of instruction during the SBOE's last several terms. In addition, she nominated a person whom she knew was inv iolation of the law to be vice chair of the SBOE. We need someone who will put students first and not self-interest. That is why I enthusaistically support Eric Mahroum for SBOE District 11. I know Eric and I know Pat. Eric is better suited to help Texas children to become successful.
— Charlie Garza, Educator and Former SBOE Member (District 1)
Eric is a proven conservative leader and will be a true champion for our children, for quality education, and for Texas' future. I am proud to endorse him for our State Board of Education!
— Pat Fallon, State Representative (District 106)
Incumbent Pat Hardy disqualified herself to serve on the Texas State Board of Education when she signed a letter encouraging a massive raid of $2 billion from the Permanent School Fund (Children Textbook Fund) in April, 2011. She accted irresponsibily by ignoring her constitutional, fiduciary responsibility to protect the fund. She made this decision without any analysis of the proposal's consequences and without the advise of her own staff and financial experts. Therefore, I support Eric Mahroum to be District 11's next SBOE respresentative.
— Don McLeroy, Former SBOE Chairman
What future does Texas have if the minds of the next generation are not nurtured in the truth of what made Texas the envy of the free world? Eric Mahroum will see to it that our kids are protected, our teachers are honored, and Texas parents are heard.
— Steve Toth, State Representative (District 15)
The Texas SBOE desperately needs leaders who will actively work for — not just talk about — transparency, accountability, & local control in education. Eric Mahroum understands government needs to steer clear of piling more regulations on education. I stand with Eric on opposing curricula such as CSCOPE & Common Core as well as allowing parental choice in education for their children.
— Sybil Lane, Crowley ISD Board of Trustees (Place 6)
Eric Mahroum will be a passionate advocate for true educational reform on the Texas SBOE. I agree with Eric that a centralized, one-size-fits-all education system does not work — implementing curricula & standards that favor such places control with bureaucrats & away from local school boards, teachers, & parents. Not only will Eric champion local control, but he will also be a sound steward of taxpayer dollars in overseeing the Permanent School Fund.
— Alice Linahan, Voices Empower (Founder and Activist)
In 2009, when I first got heavily involved in politics, several people approached me wondering why we have such a moderate SBOE representative. My response was that we could not do anything without a good candidate. Now, finally, we have an option — the most conservative county in Texas can finally have conservative representation by supporting Eric Mahroum for SBOE.
