SW MO Democrats to hold phone bank on Amendment 3

(From the Southwest Missouri Democrats)

Southwest Missouri Democrats will have their monthly breakfast and a special phone bank on Amendment 3, 9:30 a.m. Saturday, September 27, in the Union Hall at 2001 Empire, Joplin.

Breakfast will be pot luck. Please bring food (casserole, baked good, or fruit) and your cell phone for phone banking. We will have a presentation over NO on Amendment 3, followed by an active phone bank over the issue.

Tell your friends and neighbors to vote NO on Amendment 3 because it would weaken local control of our public schools, incur substantial costs for the tests, and degrade teachers' abilities to negotiate the evaluation system. All local teachers groups, including the NEA and MSTA, have come out against this measure, along with Missouri School Boards and groups of School Principals.
