Greetings, [ LEGISLATOR NAME ] –
Our public schools still are not fully funded. We still need more funding for special education, for smaller class sizes and for counselors, nurses, and support workers. We also need to fund educator salaries so that good teachers stay in the classroom, and prevent educator layoffs in 2019.
I am calling to ask you to support a capital gains tax and use that money to amply fund all public schools for every child, pass legislation to give districts the levy flexibility they need, and fully fund special education.
Thank you for your service to our district and state.
