How Did Hot Topics in Education Legislation Go?

We had a good turnout for Monday night’s candidate forum, Hot Topics in Education Legislation. About 30 people heard the public education positions of the candidates for 86th district, Lisa Posthumus Lyons (R) and Frank Hammond. We will be posting the prepared questions as they were asked on Monday. My overall impression is summed up by committee member Tina Murua’s assessment: “It's a question of whether

funding schools will bring good jobs (Hammond's position); or good jobs will bring funding to schools (Posthumus-Lyons position). With that in mind, don’t forget to vote November 2!
