Reject Ref. 90

Personal freedom makes the USA greatest in the world. One freedom I cherished with my own children was the right teach human development in the home, and influence school curriculum. I served on curriculum selection committees and spent hours reviewing sex education curriculum in a small library at the Central Valley School District offices to know what my kids would be taught.

This spring, in opposition to the thousands of parents who wrote, called, and traveled to speak in opposition to the Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Bill (SB5395), Governor Inslee signed it.

If your family does not agree with the requirements and curriculums recommended in SB5395 I suggest you vote to REJECT Referendum 90.

Referendum 90 was put on the ballot by families who want the freedom to choose what their kids are taught. In a lockdown, more signatures were gathered for this referendum than any other, EVER, in Washington. Clearly voters have spoken twice to Governor Inslee. First, we told him in January that we did not want SB5395, then again by getting Referendum 90 on the ballot in record time with record number of signatures.

We need to tell him a third time. Vote to REJECT Referendum 90 and you will Reject SB5395 which requires comprehensive sex education from kindergarten on by 2022. And elect a new Governor, Loren Culp, who I believe will protect the freedoms of families and business owners that were infringed upon by Governor Inslee.
