From Local 2250: Urgent action: Democracy is under ATTACK in Prince George's County

From ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 President Shirley Adams:

Urgent action: Democracy is under ATTACK in Prince George's County

Call your senator to tell them to Protect Democracy at 1-877-484-0394.

Some politicians in the Maryland legislature are considering legislation that would destroy democracy in Prince Georges County. The bill will curtail the authority your democratically elected school board and add an additional set of six people hand-picked by the county executive. It would also take the power and funding from the Prince Georges County School Board and put it at the sole discretion of the county executive. If that wasn't bad enough, the county executive would have the sole authority to outsource our children's education without any oversight.

This is bad news for the citizens of Prince Georges County, ignores the will of the electorate and spells failure of PG's students.

Your senator needs to hear from you today – call 1-877-484-0394.

Urge them for democracy in PG County. Tell your legislator that you oppose the elimination of your democratically elected school board and the arbitrary outsourcing of our children's future.
