Tony Evers is the current Superintendent of Public Schools. He is a public school advocate. He has TWO challengers so there is a primary. HE MUST WIN THIS PRIMARY to advance to the general election in April. Primary turnouts are notoriously abysmal so it is imperative that we turn out and TURN OTHERS OUT to vote.

Evers is endorsed by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), the School Administrators Alliance, and more. As we enter the era of public schools under a US Secretary of Education who has spent her career trying to end public school, we need a strong advocate for schools, children, families, and teachers in Wisconsin.

Other events coming up this week (check the calendar at couleeprogressives.org) include One Billion Rising-La Crosse Rises, La Crosse Reads events, Sustainable La Crosse meetings and forums, La Crosse Citizen Climate Lobby, Indivisible meeting, Jill Billings fundraiser and more.
