State Rep. Jennifer DeChant, D-Bath, has had a perfect voting record of supporting public education in year two of the 126th Legislature. She voted for fair teacher evaluations, for fairness for retired teachers who wish to return to teaching, for a moratorium on for-profit charter schools, for a small increase for retirees, for restoration of money to cities and towns, and for expansion of pre-K programs so that all 4-year-olds in Maine, whose families wish to send them, can have the benefits of pre-K, which our children in RSU 1 already enjoy.
Jennifer understands that public schools are the community infrastructure which supports us all and that teachers are critical in helping shape the future of our democracy.
I urge you to join me in voting to re-elect Jennifer DeChant in House District 52. Only the Legislature can restore the funding our school budgets need for our children to thrive.
