Readers of Page One know that the 2011 gubernatorial race is apparently going to be fought by A Kentucky Newspaper – rather than the Democrat – and David Williams.
The paper has made both its editorial and news position clear.
This afternoon, the Williams-Farmer Campaign sent this out in an email blast about “fighting for neighborhood schools”:
I am committed to giving every child a quality education. I advocate neighborhood schools, voluntary charter schools, a better student testing system and merit pay for teachers who help impoverished students achieve better test scores. Every step of the way I am opposed by Courier Journal, the teachers’ union bosses and their puppet Steve Beshear.
Time and again conservatives in Louisville stand up for common sense education reforms that would help children, but are blocked by this cabal of social engineers. Conservatives, parents and political leaders live in fear of being called racist by this newspaper for advocating neighborhood schools. Well, I am not intimidated or cowed by Courier Journal or anyone else.
Any predictions on how this is going to play out?
