Parents for School Choice, a group of charter school parents and supporters, released the following today:
Parents for School Choice is pleased to announce the following endorsements:
SENATE DISTRICT 19 - LIBBY SZABO
Libby Szabo has shown a full understanding of the issues that face charter schools. Her children have been enrolled in charter schools and she fully supports charter schools. Libby's opponent, Evie Hudak, has been a strident critic of charter schools and has exhibited a lack of understanding of charter school issues. For Senate District 19, we recommend Libby Szabo.
SENATE DISTRICT 23 - SHAWN MITCHELL
Shawn Mitchell has been involved with the charter school movement since the very beginning. Shawn helped found the Academy of Charter Schools, serving as their legal counsel. Shawn guided the Academy through their appeals process with the State Board of Education and later argued successfully before the Colorado Supreme Court in a landmark charter school decision. In the legislature Shawn has always been a strong advocate of charter school issues. Shawn's opponent, Joe Whitcomb, has stated that he feels that charter schools take money away from public schools and should be limited accordingly. For Senate District 23, we recommend Shawn Mitchell.
HOUSE DISTRICT 31 - HOLLY HANSEN
Holly Hansen is a strong advocate for school choice and for charter schools. As the mother of two children, Holly is acutely aware of the need for quality education, from pre-school forward. Holly's opponent, Judy Solano, is the current vice chair of the House Education Committee. In that position she has worked against charter school legislation at every opportunity. We recommend Holly Hansen for House District 31.
Our endorsements are based on candidate's positions on charter schools and school choice. We feel our recommendations are made in the best interests of charter schools and charter school students. Please pass these recommendations on to other charter school families. As we enter the final days of this election, we ask you to help us support our endorsed candidates.
