Teachers’ friend

Teachers in general have been good about voting to throw a rascal out of office, but not so good about voting to reward a friend. Let’s change that by showing up to vote in the Republican primary for Diane Patrick, state representative District 94.

Being a retired teacher myself, I can say without reservation that there is no better friend to retired teachers than Diane, and judging from the awards she has won, there is no better friend to the business community, either. Because of Diane’s and other legislators’ support, the Texas Teacher Retirement Fund is actuarially sound for the first time in many years, and teachers who have been retired at least 15 years received a cost-of-living raise for the first time since 2001.

Please join me in supporting our friend Diane Patrick in the Republican primary.
