Voting against these reforms included Assembly members Hayashi and Torrico, and Senate Member Corbett. Abstaining (as to not upset the unions) was Assembly Member Buchanan (former school board member). All of our local state representatives voted to support the unions at the expense of improving our school system.
For all of you who are upset about school funding, you should contact these representatives and give them a piece of your mind. We also need to vote these people out of office. Education is one of the most important items our state takes care of and these members are more concerned with the unions than our students. Our schools will never get to where they should be with representatives voting down real reform.
