Ybarra says she takes ‘responsibility’ for website duplication, but doesn’t say if she’ll change it

Sherri Ybarra, GOP candidate for Idaho state superintendent of schools, has now issued a statement about her campaign website’s apparent copying of Democratic rival Jana Jones’ campaign website, but hasn’t addressed whether she’ll change her site; the duplication was reported today by Idaho Education News. Here is Ybarra's statement:

"I was surprised to learn of the similarity in language on the websites on the contact pages.  The contact copy page was posted 6 months ago for the primary election in March. I sent my web managers copy regarding issues and positioning statements. They wrote other copy points on the contact page; however, I take responsibility for final copy content.   My focus is, and will continue to be, how we best provide a strong future for Idaho's children.  That future begins with the very best education and preparation we can offer them.  As an educator working every day within Idaho's system, I have the experience and ideas to bring meaningful reforms and work closely with members of the Idaho Legislature and stakeholders to move Idaho education forward.”
