Billig truly for schools

Why do some politicians think they can send out a mailer with lies about their opponents and think that citizens will vote for them? We are not stupid. We do educate ourselves about the candidates and we know the truth! That is why I am voting for Andy Billig for 3rd District Senate.

As a teacher, I know I can count on Billig in Olympia. He understands the need for investing in early learning so kids come to school ready to learn. Andy supports me and my colleagues in order for us to be successful. Andy is for education. Why else would the Washington Education Association, with 80,000 educators, endorse him?

Andy also supported the Spokane Public School’s recent levy. His opponent did not. How can Nancy McLaughlin be for education and the welfare of our kids if she doesn’t support a vital component of funding that is needed for the future of our schools and our students?

I am voting for Andy because I know personally he walks the talk. He just doesn’t talk. Please vote for Andy Billig. Thank you!

Jenny Rose

President, Spokane Education Association
