“Well after midnight, Mesnard, with Farnsworth as point man during a testy floor debate with Democrats, added an amendment to the budget. It exempted charter schools from procurement and conflict-of-interest laws and from a requirement to disclose their entire annual spending plans on school websites.”

Representatives Livingston and Toma have consistently voted to enable this type of behavior. They are putting profits before the working families of our district. As your Representative I will protect your tax money from waste and misuse.
