There’s a lot at stake right now. Right wing extremists and their special interests want to balance the budget on the backs of our schools and our children. Simply put, I need your help to stop them.
The Governor’s budget proposal would be disastrous for our local schools – cutting over $12 million in direct classroom support. Coupled with other cuts, that’s nearly a $20 million loss for our local schools. That means larger classes, fewer books, older computers, fewer after school programs and less opportunity for our children.
Time is running out – with a potential budget vote likely to come later this week, we have only a few days to stop this.
I will not allow right wing extremists to cut public education funding to balance the budget.
I’ve always been a budget hawk. While on the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco, I established the largest “Rainy Day” fund in the city’s history. In Sacramento, I have called for more transparency in our arcane budgeting process.
However, I can’t in good conscience let these cuts happen.
Senator Leland Yee
