May 19th, At Bennion Student Union, 1776 Science Center Drive. Noon - 1:30pm. City Club will put Luke Mayville on our stage. Co-founder of Reclaim Idaho. Their focus is on issues not political parties through grassroots organizing. There is strong support for their ballot initiative the Quality Education Act.
"It's Time to Vote for Quality Education"
-Idaho ranks dead last of 50 states in funding for K-12 education. We're facing a crisis-level teacher shortage with teacher pay near the lowest in the nation. School districts are cutting traditional Idaho programs in welding, carpentry, and ag science.
-This November, voters will likely have a chance to vote for the Quality Education Act, a citizen initiative that would boost pay for teachers and invest in strong K-12 programs.
-The Quality Education Act is paid for without a penny of new taxes for any individual making under $250,000 or any married couple making under $500,000.
Lunch will be served. Members $20, Non-members $25, Gallery Seating $5. RSVP for lunch no later than May 15th. Click the Live Event button to reserve your spot now!
