Do you HAVE to go to HPHS to get elected in University Park or Highland Park? Not technically. But let me ask you this: Did your spouse go there? OK, you might be alright. Developing.
- All 6 of the candidates (including incumbent mayor) endorsed by the Highland Park Community League attended Highland Park High School. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
- Of the 5 candidates endorsed by the University Park Community League (including the candidate who is unopposed for mayor), 3 went to HPHS. Of the 2 non-HPHS grads, 1 lists on his bio that his wife went to HPHS (no mention of where the other wives matriculated).
Anyone know if we’ve ever had a city council candidate or elected official who went to a DISD school? Maybe a wife?
