Vote YES for a conservative voice –
Dr. Joshua Tarbay for WISD School Board of Trustee’s Place 5
My name is Dr. Joshua J. Tarbay and it is with great pleasure, that I announce my candidacy for WISD School Board of Trustees Place 5.
A little about me:
Loving husband and father of 2 WISD sweethearts
Volunteer coach of my daughter’s soccer team
Volunteer as a “Watchdog” at Mary Martin Elementary
Active member of St. Stephens church
Earned Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration
Chairman of the Health and Physical Education Department at Tarrant County College NW campus
As the chair of my department, I have the opportunity to understand the educational experience on many different levels. I oversee and manage our budget, supervise full-time faculty members and adjunct instructors, not to mention the courses I currently teach. Education is my life!
I am immersed daily in education-related discussions. How we deal with enrollments or what creative ways we can come up with to improve student success. How do we balance the needs of the community, with the direct needs of the students? How will the decisions in Austin affect our budget, maintenance requirements, textbook costs, student fees, and technological upgrades?
There are currently no WISD board members with an underlying expertise in education. I believe school boards need to be a cross section of the community, compiled of business men and woman, parents, community leaders, volunteers, financial stake holders and informed citizens. We need someone with a thorough understanding of the educational process and can recognize issues that affect teachers, staff, administration and the community.
I debate and discuss these topics each and every day. I listen to teachers who question C-SCOPE, I would have questioned it myself. The way C-SCOPE times and scripts our teachers is an embarrassment! Not to mention the anti-American sentiment running through it.
Lastly, I feel it is important to state that although I am a father of two, coach of many, and a school teacher to all…I am NOT in favor of the size, the scope, nor the “All or Nothing” strategy being used to pass the proposed WISD 2013 Bond. We need someone with a thorough understanding to the educational process.
Dr. Joshua Tarbay
“You can only go to the well, so many times”. Bonds are for Emergencies, and in a couple years…we may be faced with REAL capacity issues and may need to ask for another building…or even more? But if this bond passes…that’s it! THAT’S IT! Tax payers, no matter how much they want to support schools, just cannot afford to pass another one every couple of years. Is THIS the bond we want…is this WHEN we want it?
I believe I can provide an educational understanding and level of expertise that would be more than welcome on the WISD School Board. It is with pleasure that I announce my candidacy for WISD School Board of Trustee’s Place 5.

Parker County TEA Party
We are Taxed Enough Already!!
About The Parker County TEA Party – The TEA Party Patriots of Parker County
We are a grassroots group of Americans united to share our common value – that the Constitution of the United States should be the governance of our land. It should not be re-interpreted or revised in meaning to meet the needs to special interests or political favors. We’re concerned about reckless overspending, unfair and punitive taxation, and the increasing lack of government constraints. We are peaceful American citizens that organize protests and rallies in Parker County, Texas. We’re not contained by any particular ideology or party, but strive to be a pluralistic and populist movement committed to Liberty, especially economic liberty.
I just read your facebook page and your latest comment about the dealership owners dropping 13000 on something that would break weatherford or something like that. I did see that you said one way to help educate is to drop the student teacher ratio. First question how on earth do you plan on doing that with out hiring teachers???? Or, are you planning on just getting rid of some kids? Because like it or not there is a overcrouding issue RIGHT NOW. If you hire teachers then how are you going to pay them???? With the states cutbacks the only way this will work is if you drop the other teachers pay, correct? Well tha is the platform you are running on that we need to pay teachers more and not build anything. That is what your comment on your Facebook page said in a nutshell. Also how can you allow an organization that has consitantly on a regular basis lied and twisted every single truth that has been posted on both their website and Facebook page? Then block the true documented facts from being posted. How can anyone feel confident in you when you whole basis is lies? I sure cant. Now you being against the bond is fine that is what is great about our country but being backed by a bunch of people who have twisted the truth and outright lied is no way to achieve what you are striving for.
