Stop Betsy DeVos

on Sun, 01/08/2017 - 02:34

Taxpayers for Public Education vehemently opposes Ms. Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.  DeVos, an avid supporter of vouchers and privatization of public education has pumped millions of dollars into campaigns that advocate for the demise if public education. Ms. DeVos, a disastrous choice for Secretary of Education would do much harm to the education of all our children.  Now is the time to act. We must pressure our elected officials to stop the appointment DeVos.  Please call Senator Michael Bennet and  Senator Cory Gardner and ask them to vote NO on Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.

In December, neither Colorado Senator said they would vote NO on Betsy DeVos. Senate hearings start January 11 in the HELP committee, on which Senator Bennet serves.

Here is a sample script.  Feel free to make it your own.

DeVos, an avid supporter of vouchers and privatization of public education has pumped millions of dollars into campaigns that advocate for the demise of public education. Ms. DeVos, a disastrous choice for Secretary of Education would do much harm to the education of all our children. I implore you to vote against the confirmation of Ms. Betsy DeVos for Secretary of a Education.

Have some more time?  Call the other members of the HELP committee.
