And here’s the Fischer camp’s press release all about it:
Louisville (September 29, 2010) – Louisville’s teachers today endorsed Greg Fischer for Mayor, saying he has the vision, insight and experience to lead the city and help improve education.
“Teachers touch all our lives and are the foundation on which we build our community,” Fischer said. “I am honored that the teachers believe in me and my campaign.”
The Jefferson County Teachers Association represents 6,000 teachers, librarians, speech clinicians, physical therapists and occupational therapists.
Fischer has been discussing ways to improve education since his campaign began more than a year ago.
His plan includes:
- developing vibrant after-school programs so children learn beyond the school day;
- putting a nurse in every school “because a healthy child is a successful child,” Fischer said;
- and creating a program called Every 1 Knows that works with parents, in their workplaces and at their houses of worship, to get them the information about raising their children and to help plan for higher education.
I’ll let you folks do what you do best: complain in the comments and via email.
