The 2017 primary voter turnout showed an alarming disinterest in educational leadership among Wisconsinites.
The two remaining on the ballot (Tony Evers and Lowell Holtz) leave us with an easy choice. For those unfamiliar with either candidate, two organizations collaborated on a six-question survey, inviting the original contenders to respond. Tony Evers’ responses were informative and encouraging. Lowell Holtz did not even respond. That fact alone disqualifies him in my opinion.
Friends, the upcoming April 4 election for State Superintendent of Public Instruction is a test of our passion to protect our public schools from billionaire investors and their privatization scheme. Wall Street politicians and investors can't wait to get their hands on our tax dollars, now budgeted for the public school system.
Evers takes the word "Public" in his title to heart. He is a champion for public schools and believes in the value of a quality public education for all children. He is the right person for the job.
Join me in voting for Evers for state superintendent of public instruction. Early in-person voting runs from March 20-31 in your city clerk’s office. The election is on April 4.
Tony Evers advocates every single day for public education. Teachers, parents, grandparents, future educators, local electeds support Tony, from all corners of Wisconsin. Here are just a few things they had to say:
"As a product of Wisconsin public schools, I know it is imperative that Tony Evers get re-elected to protect against endless rounds of cuts and attacks."
"Dr. Evers fights for education policy that protects all kids no matter their zip code. I'm proud to support him."
"Tony firmly believes education is our pathway back to middle class prosperity. To rebuild our economy and restore the American Dream, every child must be a graduate ready for college or a career, and re-investing in education will help get us there."
The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO has endorsed Tony Evers as Superintendent of Public Instruction in our neighborhood schools. Evers is in a three-way race and every vote counts!
Tony Evers understands that each and every Wisconsin child deserves a quality, public education in a fully-funded school. Evers can be counted on work together with students, parents and educators to create a 21st Century public education system where every child gets the education they deserve.
Primary elections are so important. In the Feb. 21 primary election, we will be voting for the state superintendent of schools. Tony Evers has served two terms and has shown he is qualified to serve the public schools again. He has the interests of teachers, children, and education in all the public schools throughout Wisconsin. It is important to vote in the primary on Feb. 21 so that he will be on the April ballot.
Please vote for Tony Evers for State Superintendent of Public Instruction on Feb. 21. Evers works hard to ensure quality public school instruction for all children – the backbone upon which our society stands or falls.
Tony Evers is dedicated to Wisconsin K-12 education every single day. Two of the opposing candidates favor private school vouchers, which cause a continual drain of public education funds to private school education. This results in less money for public schools – the schools most Wisconsin students attend.
This primary is important because Tony Evers, our current superintendent, is being challenged by two candidates and one write-in campaign, and only the top two vote-getters will advance to the general election in April. I think that Tony is the best candidate in this race and ought to be re-elected.
Dr. Evers knows that education is the engine that drives our Wisconsin economy and will continue to fight for more funding for our public schools. He does not support giving our tax dollars to private schools. He has always been a supporter of teachers and his goal is to ensure that each child is taught by teachers who are inspired and empowered.
This election is important! Dr. Tony Evers is running for re-election, and should be overwhelmingly supported. Dr. Evers has been a tireless champion for public schools and feels strongly that every child can be educated. Dr. Evers recognizes the strength of public schools which seek to educate all students.
