That was the battle cry of one contributor to the Go Big Ed fund to fight the OPS tax levy override. It takes considerably less courage to send a check for $25 or $100 to an ad campaign than to try to stop crazed terrorists in mid-air.
But who's to say this fight isn't just as important? The outcome Nov. 5 will affect tens of thousands of children in Omaha and the surrounding state for years to come.
If we want better educations for those kids, we have to take back control of our public schools . . . now. And to do it, we have to take control of their spending, and direct it in the right ways, toward what kids really need.
Won't you help?
Donations are confidential for everyone in the universe except you and me. They stand at $550 with a goal of $4,999.99 so I don't have to fill out a bunch of forms, as is required once you hit the $5,000 mark. :>) Ads will begin appearing in print and on the radiowaves about a week before the Nov. 5 election.
Please tell your friends about this opportunity to draw the line on school spending, and forward the Go Big Ed blog address to them.
And send your check to "Susan Williams" just as soon as possible to:
P.O. Box 995
Elkhorn, NE 68022
It would help if donors would email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I know the money is coming.
