Letter to the Editor: AZ Court Strikes Invest in Ed from Ballot

It is with great disappointment that a Maricopa County Superior court judge tossed Invest in Ed off this year's ballot.

In a poorly written decision, he dashed the hopes of hundreds of thousands of voters and volunteers who braved the heat and a pandemic to sign on to this measure. The group that fought the initiative does not have the best interests of our children and educators in mind. Arizona is in desperate need of a dedicated revenue stream of funding for education and this measure would assure this money.

Invest in Ed has proven that when voters are given a choice they will vote to support public education. This fight is not over. There will be an appeal. But no matter what, we must elect candidates who will support and fully fund public education in our state.

Written by Sharon Girard, a candidate for Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 8
