Keep Our Public School Dollars In Our Public Schools
Should you wish to contact your state representatives, below is a simple, suggested script that is suitable either for an email or a phone message:
“Hi, my name is _________. I’m e registered voter residing at __________ in _______, Texas. My phone number is __________. I am against any state voucher plan, savings grants, or any program that diverts public tax dollars to private entities, homeschool students, or parents with little or no academic or financial accountability to the state, taxpayers, or local communities.”
NOT SURE WHO TO CONTACT?
Enter your address in the link below and your elected officials,
including contact information, will be listed.
