Remember how you felt that day last March? Legislators told us they were with us. Most agreed: more money for teacher pay; no more money for vouchers. And then we got the word. Reeves and Gunn had killed the $4,000 teacher pay raise, and they sneaked in more money for private school vouchers. Without even telling our legislators – the people whose votes are supposed to matter.
Remember how you felt when state leaders defied us, and our legislators, and our democracy? It’s November, and we remember. It’s our chance to cast a vote that really counts. If each of us does a little something to get public school supporters to the polls, we will win the day for our children and our teachers. It’s November. Time to remember – and act!
If you know you won’t be able to make it to your polling place on Tuesday, be sure to vote absentee! The deadline for in person absentee voting is Saturday, November 2, at noon. Your circuit clerk’s office will be open for absentee voting tomorrow from 8 a.m. until noon. Please reach out to a neighbor, friend, or family member who might not otherwise be able to vote, and offer a ride to your circuit clerk’s office to vote absentee. Remember to take an ID!
