If you believe that this is a progressive agenda that will allow California to lead a community-driven education reform renaissance. Please join with me tomorrow and support our fundraiser for Tony Thurmond. He’s up against Marshall Tuck, a former charter operator and ally of private control and privatizer education reformers. We need folks to support candidates that are at the top of the education ticket in California and elsewhere. If we want to realize a vision of education that includes the principles above, please do this right now: Please join me by either RSVPing (aaron@tonythurmond.com) for the event at 5 pm on Thursday Oct 30th at AC Public Affairs (1215 K St, Sacramento, CA 95814) in downtown Sacramento or giving a donation of any size here. Please don’t delay, please commit to this progressive agenda right now. You know what they say, as California goes, so goes the nation.
