For Governor Latinos Should Vote Tony Evers

By Robert Miranda

Latino voters will have a great choice when voting for Governor and his name is Tony Evers.

Evers has proven himself to be a compassionate leader for Wisconsin. As the Superintendent of the Department of Public Instruction Evers understands the value of education and its role in the lives of Wisconsin residents.

Regarding education Evers states:

“Our public schools are the heart and soul of so many Wisconsin communities but they also are essential to sustainable, innovative and  long-term economic growth and workforce development. Furthermore, research shows that strong public schools are a leading factor in why millennials stay in Wisconsin, especially in our rural communities.

“I believe what’s best for our kids is what’s best for our future.

“As Governor, I will:

“- Increase investments in early childhood education and quality childcare, which also includes helping Wisconsin families with skyrocketing childcare costs

“- Increase funding for our public schools and restore respect and professionalism towards all our hardworking educators

“-Increase investments in both our technical schools and UW System

“- Support and reward research and innovation from student and faculty alike, and after graduation we must do everything we can to keep these kids in Wisconsin

“- Work to increase pay of all K-12/UW personnel.”

Regarding immigration Evers said:

“Respect. Tolerance. Inclusivity. It starts with leading by example, which is something I have done over my career as an educator, principal and now as State Superintendent. It is time for Wisconsin to turn a new page.

“Open lines of communication are critical – with both immigrant communities and local law enforcement. Miscommunication is all too often the root of problems and frankly a goal for those seeking to divide us. Combatting false information, building trust and providing adequate community resources are important pieces of the solution if we are going

to build our communities up instead of giving in to federal fear.

“I would veto abhorrent legislation (like AB 190) meant to intimidate, scare and punish families in Wisconsin, simply based on the color of their skin.

“I support in-state tuition for undocumented students and would support driver’s cards for undocumented workers. As Governor, I would direct the Attorney General to join the lawsuit challenging President Trump’s termination of the DACA program.”

Clearly Tony Evers is the best choice for Latino voters for Governor. Vote November 6.
