Your views: Sheridan supports state’s public schools

I’m writing to express my personal support for Mike Sheridan for State Senate. Sheridan and I agree on most issues.

Because I taught in Janesville for 33 years, I especially value Mike’s opinion: Too much money has been cut from public schools. Wisconsin used to boast that we had one of the best school systems in the country. This is no longer true.

Mike feels that our tax money should not be spent to support private voucher schools. I agree.

It bothers me that our “tax money” is going to voucher schools that don’t have to prove that their schools are meeting any educational standards that public schools have to meet.

There have been studies showing that private voucher schools are not as good at educating our children as public schools.

I strongly believe that Mike Sheridan can make a difference in Madison due to his experience, fairness, and his ability to work with both sides of the aisle.

We have three Democratic candidates from which to choose. I’m choosing Mike. Please vote for Mike Sheridan on Aug. 12.
