School Board Candidate Has a Curious Logo

By Tim Rogers |

Elizabeth Jones is running for the District 1 DISD trustee seat. She sounds like a smart lady and an interesting candidate. She’s a visiting professor at the UTD School of Management, where she is the co-founder and associate director of the Center for Finance Strategy Innovation. You can read more about her here. She might wish to have a word with her political consultants, though. Because to my eye, they’ve ripped off the logo of a former school board candidate, Sally Cain. She ran for the District 9 seat back in 2009. Now, was Cain the first candidate ever to run for a school board seat and use a pencil in her logo? I doubt it. But the similarities (down to the typeface) are striking. Here are the two logos. Judge for yourself.
