Interview with Jasmine Jenkins

As was the case in 2012, there is a three-way primary for the nomination in SBOE District 6, the one electoral entity that is subject to redistricting containing a Republican who represents me. I hadn’t planned to do interviews in this race for the primary, as there was only so much time available and so many other races that needed attention, but I would up interviewing Dakota Carter after he reached out to me. It’s only fair then that I present an interview with the other candidate in the May runoff for this slot, Jasmine Jenkins. Jenkins is a former bilingual 4th grade teacher in Alief ISD who went on to get a master’s degree and Ph.D. in public policy, with a research focus on education policy and school leadership. She now serves as the Manager of Community-Based Initiatives with Advantage Testing of Houston. Here’s what we talked about:

    Dr. Carter is way more qualified than she is in my opinion. Plus there was this creepy guy at the polling location campaigning for her. He would scream and get in the face of voters with his crayon-written sign. Very unprofessional.
