Today is an important day for Arizona’s children and educators.

Across the state, 50 public school districts are holding either bond, override, or maintenance and operation override elections.

If these districts prevail in their requests at the ballot box, schools, depending on the need, will be able to:

  • Build new schools or classrooms and renovate existing ones.
  • Purchase new technologies or upgrade existing technological infrastructures.
  • Improve the safety features of schools.
  • Obtain new busses.
  • Reduce class sizes by hiring more teachers.
  • Increase teacher salaries.
  • Recruit more counselors.
  • Fund full-day kindergarten.

A child’s growth and a state’s forward direction will not move as well if these school funding measures are not approved.

If you have not submitted a mail-in ballot, please remember to vote today and support the children and public schools in the area.

David Gordon
Living in Arizona since his family moved to Tempe from New York in 1982, David Gordon has three degrees from Arizona State University and the University of Phoenix in History, Political Science, and Secondary School Administration. A highly qualified Social Studies instructor and Certified School Principal, Mr. Gordon owned his own charter school, Grand Canyon College Preparatory Academy from 1997-2016. The school served students in grades 6-12 in the East Valley of Maricopa County. Many of the graduates of GCP earned college credit for free while still attending high school, some completing the first year of college before graduating. Among the speakers at the school's graduations were noted figures in Arizona Politics like Harry Mitchell, David Schweikert, Juan Mendes, Andrew Sherwood, and John Huppenthal. Mr. Gordon also participated in the revisions of the Arizona History and Social Studies standards. In January 2017, Mr. Gordon started the political blog Twenty-First Century Progressive Bull Moose. It has a global following and routinely comments on the political events of the day. Mr. Gordon also helps administer the Facebook page Living Blue in Arizona. He is also currently writing a series of Young Adult science fiction novels which incorporate the themes of time travel and its impact on history. Mr. Gordon is very happy to be asked to join the Blog for Arizona team and hopes to spread the progressive word to make Arizona a better place for everyone.
