Action Alert: Eagle River Republicans Set to Attack Public Schools and Alaska Working Families!

Eagle River Republicans are set to attack public schools after teachers save lives and as buildings close.

Tomorrow night, Tuesday  December 11th, at a Republican Party meeting (Districts 13 and 14), attendees will vote on a resolution urging the State of Alaska to get rid of full day kindergarten, base district funding on attendance of students and generally slash support of public schools. This is being proposed just a week after Anchorage School District teachers safely shepherded thousands of children to safety and as our community faces the closure of two Eagle River schools for the remainder of the school year.  

Republican parents, teachers and supporters should attend the meeting scheduled for Tuesday night at 7pm at Piccolino's (12801 Old Glenn Hwy) and voice their opposition to this egregious attack on our public schools and educators.


In addition, there are resolutions attacking working families and the right to collective bargaining, as well as urging the repeal of Medicaid expansion. If you are a registered Republican in Eagle River and object to these attacks on public education and Alaska working families, please show up and be heard tomorrow evening.

I come from a union family. Both of my parents worked as unionized factory workers for over three decades each. I vividly remember my mother participating in a picket line when I was younger. This encouraged me to continue the tradition as a member and employee of Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate and now as a member of ASEA Local 52. For me, being both a beneficiary of collective bargaining and a participant in union activities is to embody what is a quintessentially American notion of social solidarity or ‘we’re all in this together.’
