Florida Democratic Party Chair Karen Thurman released the following statement on today’s SB6 veto:
“Today’s veto of SB6 shows why Floridians need to elect Alex Sink as our next Governor. She will be a check on the Legislature’s attempts to gut local control, bully Florida’s teachers, and hurt the students of our state. Floridians should visit http://www.alexsink2010.com to find out how they can help Alex today,” Thurman said.
“I would also like to congratulate the teachers, parents, school board members, school superintendents, and all Floridians who fought so hard for our state’s children and against this bill. However, our work is not done. Because it is clear that Tallahassee politicians like AG Bill McCollum, Senator Jeff Atwater and the other Republicans who fought for this Tallahassee cram-down no longer care about representing the values or priorities of those who sent them there to serve, we need to continue this fight and defeat them come Election Day.”
