Education Voters of Pennsylvania has organized a statewide action day to support public education TODAY. We need more pro-education citizens in our district to make their voices heard, and you can do so by devoting just a couple of minutes right now to making two phone calls:
Phone Call 1: Call our State Senators Patrick Browne (717-787-1349) or Bob Mensch (717-787-3110). Browne represents Lower Macungie Township and Alburtis. Mensch represents Emmaus, Macungie and Upper Milford Township. Ask them to:
- Fight to restore the $250 million dollar hole in Pennsylvania’s education budget.
- Support a fair, adequate, and predictable state funding formula for Pennsylvania’s 500 school districts.
- Demand the state fix the charter school law that allows charter schools to “double dip” on pension payments.
Phone Call 2: Call Governor Corbett (717-787-2500) and tell him the state education budget cuts over the last several years are wrong for local taxpayers. Let him know that you believe public education should be a top priority in Pennsylvania, and that you want him to restore the funding to public schools that our districts need and our children deserve.
These two calls can be done in minutes. And you can multiply your impact by asking just 1 or 2 friends, neighbors, or family members to call too!
