PHOENIX – Herschel Fink, executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party, released the following statement thanking the #REDforED movement and Arizona educators for standing up to Governor Doug Ducey and his failed record on the state’s education system.
“It took a two-month public relations crisis and a statewide walkout for Doug Ducey to provide the bare minimum of what was needed to improve the nation’s worst education system. But as we said last month, Ducey’s so-called ‘plan’ falls short of any sort of political courage and in fact, exposes the few leadership qualities the governor has within himself. The real leaders and heroes are Arizona’s educators who will no doubt morph #REDforED from a movement into a political issue for the 2018 election year. They are ready to #DitchDucey this November, and so are we.”
