What do you do when your colleague and Chief Relationship Officer, Holly-Maria Flynn Vilaseca is campaigning to retain her seat on the HISD school board? You hop on the phone!
“Holly Flynn Vilaseca was appointed to the board in January when long-time trustee Greg Meyers resigned, and she deserves to serve a full term. Vilaseca has gained a reputation for being a steady hand and reasoned voice on the board representing her west Houston district, which includes the Energy Corridor and Sharpstown. Vilaseca, 36, is the daughter of immigrants and was the first in her family to attend college. She began her career in education as a Teach for America Corp. member and went on to teach bilingual and dual language early childhood classes for six years. She earned a master’s degree from Columbia University in social and organizational psychology and currently works for a nonprofit in the education space. Vilaseca is doing a good job. Voting her out after less than a full year on the job is not the way to build the capacity of the board….this election should go to Vilaseca.” – Houston Chronicle
