@GlinsmannMath @bridgestyler I agree 100% with that. I’ve been thinking lately that if you’re not a lawyer, it’s hard to run…

A2 We could increase voter turnout on education issues by copying the advocacy work of @NElovesPS here in Oklahoma!

via erased4838853

@angmlittle I agree, strengthening voices & potential power of independent legislators, not just those w party affils, would be gr8

via Twitter Web Client in reply to angmlittle

@bridgestyler @GlinsmannMath I think we also need to define with more specificity what “pro-Education” should mean…

via erased4838853 in reply to GlinsmannMath

A3 We need to amplify the work & ideas of Oklahoma legislators who support CONSTRUCTIVE education reform

via erased4838853

A3 Encouraging more teachers to be “connected educators” & more vocal advocates is 1 good way to address this.

via erased4838853

A2 We need to track & publish the EDU voting records of every Oklahoma legislator, similar to how @SunFoundation does for Congress

via erased4838853
