To the Editor,

March Madness! The excitement of high school and college basketball tournaments. Citizens should be excited about and involved in two other important events...the April 4th election of a Superintendent of Public Instruction and our state's next 2-year budget.

Tony Evers wants to continue as head of the Department of Public Instruction. Born and raised in Plymouth, Dr. Evers graduated from Plymouth High School and earned his bach- elor's, master's, and doctoral degree from UW-Madison. He was a teacher, principle, school district superintendent, CESA administrator, and is completing his 8th year as DPI Superintendent.

Primary turnout had 8,510 folks voting in Sheboygan County. There are 19,178 public school students in the county. There should have been tens of thousands of votes cast when you count the moms, dads, grandparents, staff, and others who connect with these students! Support our kids... Vote April 4th!

Looks like Governor Walker “Stands With Evers!” What Evers requested for public education is close to what the Governor included in his budget. More resources for public schools! Especially for dealing with student mental health issues. Evers is a strong advocate for Wisconsin's 860,000+ students! He wants to continue his work for adequate resources, to deal with the growing teacher shortages, and to close the achievement gaps in our urban districts.

Learn more about the Governor's budget. Talk to your representatives. That budget can be viewed at.... http://doa.wi.gov/Divisions/ Budget-and-Finance/Biennial- Budget/201719-Executive- Budget/

An alternative budget exists, called “A Wisconsin Budget for All.” Some say there’s not enough money to completely address all the needs of our communities. But let's make the right choices. Lawmakers can choose to help mainly the few big donor special interests, or do what is needed for the common good of many. That “common good” includes adequate support of our public schools!
