Legislators Listen to Parents
Talk with Legislators Dec. 14 at Parent-Sponsored Forum on Education
Parents and community members are invited to talk with legislators during the parent District Advisory Board’s (DAB) Annual Forum on Public Education, which will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., Monday, Dec. 14, in the conference room at the Johannsen Support Services Complex, 2407 LaPorte Ave.
A panel of Northern Colorado state legislators will attend to answer questions about education. Congresswoman Betsy Markey, State Rep. John Kefalas and Randy Fisher, and State Sen. Bob Bacon will attend. Others invited include Gov. Bill Ritter, Sen. Mark Udall, Rep. Kevin Lundberg and Senator Steve Johnson.
A moderator will ask questions from the public submitted on index cards. Attendees may bring pre-prepared questions and submit more during the forum. All legislators will have an opportunity to respond to the questions.
“This is an opportunity for parents and the community to talk with legislators about educational issues before the January session of the legislature starts.” says Ben Stein, the organizer for the DAB, which is comprised of parent representatives from Poudre School District schools.
