I have a simple message for David Dewhurst: get to work, or resign.
That's right -- Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst should support bipartisan calls for a Special Session of the Texas Legislature to address the state's school funding crisis, or resign his office immediately. Massive cuts to education this year, followed by systematic cuts planned for next year, will create a “Double Robin Hood” scenario for many public schools - I call this the Dewhurst Disaster.
Today, I am calling on Dewhurst to join the growing bipartisan support for a Special Session of the Texas Legislature to address the state's school funding crisis. If Dewhurst would rather campaign full-time for a promotion to the U.S. Senate than lead the state, he should resign the office of Lieutenant Governor immediately.
In the past few weeks Texans from across the political spectrum have demanded that the Governor call a Special Session of the Legislature to solve our state's school funding crisis. From conservative Republican State Senator Steve Ogden to the Texas State Teachers' Association, responsible Texans are demanding that our leaders step up, forget about politics, and show some real leadership for our schools and our school children. It's time David Dewhurst woke up and paid attention.
Our children deserve better than a belated... ‘oops.’ Texas has one shot at educating our children. It is time to act now. Join me and sign a petition demanding that David Dewhurst call a special session to address our education crisis or resign.
