What’s An Advocate?

A person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy

YOU are an advocate.

Your voice matters. No one is better positioned to tell your district’s story.

Weigh in early, weigh in often.

Are you Pollyanna? Chicken Little? Other?Slide3

Of trump and education?

Silver lining: lack of education specifics in campaigns and election

It means the candidates didn’t provide specifics or draw a line in the sand on education positions

Once he knows his education priorities, we will know them.

Has indicated proposals for higher


, K12 and early ed, but significantly devoid of detailsNo way to know the extent to which the promises of the candidate become the priorities of the President, or the extent to which he will work with Congress to move themSlide5
