As a nation, we have been faced with many tragedies in recent months. I have sent money to help the numerous people who are left without homes and livelihoods. It has been a wonderful testament to the caring people in this country that thousands of dollars have been sent to help.
At the same time, we have people in Tucson who also need our help. Families who are struggling to go to work and feed their families. They want to do the best for their children but don't have the money to pay for quality preschool. We have an opportunity to help them. For just pennies, we can vote yes for proposition 204 and give families a chance to go to work knowing their children are in a good learning environment. We can give children the opportunity to have the best chance to succeed when they enter public school.
