Two Democrat SBOE members failed to disclose gifts

"At my age [68], I don't know what happened a year ago." - Rene Nuñez, D-El Paso, making the case for term limits.

State education board trustees failed to disclose gifts, says Dallas Morning News:

Two members of the Texas State Board of Education have received thousands of dollars in gifts from a company seeking a lucrative contract with the board, records show, and those members have not reported the gifts on financial disclosure forms.

Bidding documents submitted to the board by the company, AEW Capital Management of Boston, say its employees bought 53 gifts worth more than $5,000 for board finance committee members Rene Nuñez, D-El Paso, and Rick Agosto, D-San Antonio.

These gifts were from a company angling for possible business in management of the Permanent School Fund.
