Today was the Tri County Picnic, in Beaverton Michigan. I was on hand as a candidate for Clare County. The day was full of events, with many great speakers present. When it was my turn to speak, I delivered a bold announcement. That when I am elected, I will cosponsor Abdul's Michicare proposal. Below, you can find the contents of my speech.
In the last few years, under the current governorship and a recovering Michigan economy, education has been slipping. Even as our state increased funding, state standardized test scores show a gross drop in performance across the entire school age population of our state. Under current circumstances, a rational person can only conclude: something in education is broken and it's time to figure out where and how to fix it.
As such, I support the following proposals: All Year School, Temporary Moratorium on Standardized Testing, Ending Homework, Feeless Breakfast & Lunch, & Reformulating School Funding.
I am honored to accept the endorsement of AFSCME Council 25 and I'm proud to stand by the men and women who serve our state. I hope if elected to help enact comprehensive solutions which which will benefit Michigan families, by creating the opportunities hard working Michiganders need.
