As Democrats gather this weekend for the Michigan Democratic Party’s statewide endorsement convention, there are two Democrats seeking the endorsement for two seats on the State Board of Education. Incumbent Pam Pugh is one of them and continues to be a progressive voice on the issues that impact schools and education in our state.
In addition to Ms. Pugh, there’s a new person who has thrown his hat into the ring: Eclectablog’s own Mitchell Robinson.
It is not hyperbole to say that Mitchell is one of the most well-informed Michiganders when it comes to the issue of education. He knows the history of education in our state, including the ferocious attacks by conservatives, most often led by the DeVos family, Betsy DeVos in particular.
I will proudly cast my vote for Mitchell and Pam this weekend and I hope you will, too.
