2017 Wisconsin Spring Primary

My friends in Wisconsin, don’t forget there is an election tomorrow!  On Tuesday February 21, 2017 the state will be voting on the next State Superintendent Of Public Instruction.  If you are interested at all in school choice or common core standards, make your voice known!

Here are the candidates and their websites:

Tony Evers – http://www.tonyforwisconsin.com
Lowell E. Holtz – http://www.kidservative.org
John Humphries – https://www.humphriesforschools.org/
Rick Melcher – http://www.melcherforsuper.org

Here are a few other sites I think would be useful in helping you decide who gets your vote:

While I am not prepared to make an endorsement in this race yet, here’s what my friends at Wisconsin Family Action had to say:

Today Wisconsin Family Action PAC (WFA PAC) announced it has endorsed Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Julaine Appling, WFA PAC director, made the following statement:

“We are honored to endorse a candidate of the caliber of Dr. Lowell Holtz for this important office. Dr. Holtz’s personal educational preparation and attainment, coupled with his hands-on experience are extremely well suited for this position. But more important to us is his character and his positions on the critical issues surrounding education today.
“Dr. Holtz understands that the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Department of Public Instruction don’t need to be adversarial to school choice. He rightly believes parents, not the state, are ultimately responsible for the education of their children; and he is therefore rightly supportive of giving parents more options for fulfilling that responsibility. We’ve not had a State Superintendent of Public Instruction with that mindset for decades. This is the election where that needs to change.

Remember that primaries like usually receive a low turn out.  In other words, your vote matters all the more!  Make your voice heard.
