Vic Williams was for well funded schools before he was against them
by David Safier
I've received lots of comments on yesterday's post
about Vic Williams' statement, "In many ways we are handling some of our education problems through the budget." I asked for something from Vic on the campaign trail that talked about schools and money, and Patt supplied this:
I live in LD 26 too, and I save campaign advertising. I have a Vic Williams piece that says:
" Vic Williams will:
…Make a quality public education system a top priority by working to ensure that it is well funded, equipped, and ready to serve the needs of our children."
I guess "well funded" can mean different things to different people.
Patt continues with another statement I haven't tracked down, so I don't know the context:
But according to a piece sent out by the AZ Democratic Party, Vic said he wanted to take $400 million from schools. The statement is footnoted as a reference from KUAT, LD 26 House GOP Debate, 8/6/08.
If anyone has the time and energy to track down the original quotation, let us know.
