“We know that when our state invests in education, they are investing in the economic development of our state. We must continue on. We will be doing other things to make sure that our teachers are staying engaged and involved. They’ll be walking. They’ll be knocking on doors, they’ll be doing postcards for education candidates. They’ll be doing whatever our education candidates need them to do so we can be successful, today tomorrow and well into the future.”
