DALLAS, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Michael Greenberg announced earlier today that he has received significant endorsements from former Dallas ISD School Board President and District 1 Trustee Ken Zornes and former School Board Trustee and current Texas House Representative Rafael Anchia. "I am honored to have both Ken's and Rafael's support. These endorsements are important to me because they come from two individuals that each have served as Trustee. They understand the necessary temperament needed to be successful," commented Michael Greenberg, Ph.D.

As a DISD parent, he understands the importance of bringing together students, parents and teachers to develop practical solutions to complex problems," commented Representative Anchia.
Greenberg, a director at RealPage, Inc., Ph.D. and father of a DISD kindergartner, has pledged that he will be an approachable, accountable advocate for DISD students, parents and teachers. "As proud as I am to have the support of so many public servants like Ken and Rafael, I am as excited to have the support of so many hard working parents and teachers," said Greenberg.
