Conroe, October 3 – The Montgomery County Eagle Forum will host a double header of prominent citizen leaders tonight at 6:45 p.m. at Incredible Pizza, 230 South Loop 336 West, in Conroe. Peggy Hausman will speak on “Woodlands Incorporation,” while Kelli Cook will speak on the “Conroe ISD’s $677 Million Bond.”
The Conroe Independent School District’s $677 Million bond package is set for a voter referendum on November 5, 2019, in the General Election. While incorporation of The Woodlands is not directly an issue on the ballot, incorporation has become a major issue in the Woodlands Township elections for three positions of the seven-person Township Board of Directors.
Hausman was President of the Woodlands Community Association and then served as a Director on the Woodlands Town Center Improvement District and eventually on the Board of Directors of the Woodlands Township. Hausman and her husband Mitch moved into their present home in The Woodlands in 1986.
She is a 1980 graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Missouri Western State University. Hausman grew up in Saint Joseph, Missouri.
Cook, known as “The Utah Flash,” is the Gulf Coast Regional Coordinator for the Campaign for Liberty, Chair of the Freedom & Liberty Conservatives PAC, Chair of the Finance Committee of the Montgomery County Republican Party, Co-Chair of the Montgomery County Republican Party’s Victory 2020 Steering Committee, and Publisher of The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper. Cook is a leading political organizer and prolific writer both in this newspaper and on social media.
Cook is a Director of the Children’s Hope PAC, which is leading the opposition to CISD’s $677 Million Bond. Under Cook’s leadership, the Children’s Hope PAC worked successfully to defeat CISD’s $807 Million Bond in the May 4, 2019, election.
Cook is a graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal, Utah.
