To the Editor:

Connecticut’s children deserve a first-rate education no matter what zip code they live in.

Randy Klein knows this, and I am confident that he will fight for our children and work to end the system of pitting school districts against one another in a competition for state funding. His three-point plan to make education funding predictable and equitable will ensure all children, regardless of ability, get the education resources they deserve. He has also been an outspoken proponent of local control of schools. If Randy is elected, he has pledged to stay in Hartford as long as it takes to make sure the district gets it fair share in Education Cost Sharing funding.

Randy knows that these issues are fought in Hartford, not at home. Please join me in supporting Randy Klein in this year’s election for state representative.
