Gov. Rick Perry is scheduled to appear in Greenville today at an appearance at the Old Greenville Post Office, according to State Rep. Dan Flynn, who helped arrange the visit.

“Everything is still on for him to be here at 1 or 1:15 p.m.,” Flynn said Monday. “His advance people have already been here, and we’ve invited everyone who wants to come, to come on out.”

The Governor’s press office in Austin did not provide any details of the visit when contacted by the Herald-Banner.

“My understanding is he’s going to talk about schools, and how important education is to him,” Flynn said. “I’m speculating a little, but I expect he’ll touch on property tax relief and possibly the need for a special session.”

Flynn said he’d returned from Houston Monday to lead a field trip of school children to L-3 Communications.

“This is such a learning experience for them to see how important the study of science and math is,” Flynn said. “That’s the weakness in our system right now.”

Flynn said he was excited about what will be Perry’s second visit to Greenville in three months.

Perry endorsed Flynn for re-election during his November visit.

Flynn is being challenged in the March 7 Republican Primary by Chuck Tull of Edgewood and by Democrat Scott Cornaud of Quinlan in November.

Perry has only token opposition in the Republican Primary, but will face not only the Democratic nominee in November, but possibly independent candidates Carole Keeton Strayhorn and Kinky Freidman.

Perry’s visit is being co-hosted by Boles Independent School District Superintendent Graham Sweeney.
