On Tuesday, July 19, voters in Harrison County will elect a new representative for House District 119, replacing former Rep. Sonya Williams-Barnes, who resigned recently.
Please help us spread the word about where the candidates stand on important public education issues!
We sent our Candidate Q&A to special election candidates in House District 119, asking their positions on issues like school funding, teacher pay, pre-k, and voucher schemes that take millions of dollars away from public schools to fund private academies. You can see their answers here.
Be sure to use your own social media pages to share the link to candidates’ responses – let’s get the word out to Harrison County residents about candidates’ positions on public education! Share our Facebook and Instagram posts, and retweet our tweets.
We won’t tell you which candidates to vote for (The Parents’ Campaign does not endorse candidates – that’s up to you to decide). But we will tell you what candidates have to say about their support for public schools.
Just a few minutes of your time can make a big difference for our children and our public schools. Please get involved today. Together, we’ve got this!
