Governor Gregoire Speaks
Well, Governor Gregoire just spoke to the WEA-RA delegation and while she tried to be sympathetic and complimentary, I am not sure I believe in everything she says. While she did tell us, "I pledge to you that I am with you!", I want to know what that REALLY means. Does it mean she will be doing everything in her power to defend public education in Washington like we are? Does it mean she will be giving up her COLA as we are? Does it mean she and the legistlature will fully fund public education in Washington as we want and need? Does it mean she believes in what we do and is with us in only her beliefs? What does she REALLY mean by telling us this pledge? I hope I will find out what she REALLY means by witnessing her take action now and in the future!
