April Action Items and Events
Keep encouraging our state reps to support school choice
Unfortunately, our two local state reps need to hear from us more: House Republicans Join Democrats to Vote Against School Choice in State Budget.
Rhonda Anderson, Director of Grassroots Engagement for Gov. Abbott, has requested that all parents, citizens and activists contact their state reps by email, directly (not through their websites), so that we can also blind copy/BCC her at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are our state rep’s direct email addresses. John Raney: email@example.com; or Kyle Kacel: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Download a sample letter to your State Representative. You may want to modify the letter to reflect your personal opinion, while keeping it brief. Thanks!
