Why? Because Kathy Wilmot is so good at exposing their mistakes and selfishness, and so focused on doing what’s best for children and taxpayers instead of union wonks and educrats.

Now the pro-union, pro-educrat forces are funding this nonsense allegation to try to hurt her again, too late for Mrs. Wilmot to defend herself – unless the “good guys” fight back.

Here’s a map of that legislative district. Please, please, please contact any voters you know in that area and ask them to please, please, please vote for Kathy Wilmot for Legislature, and defeat this despicable tactic:
