Support Education - Vote for Patricia (Pan) Godchaux

In light of Joe Knollenberg’s poor voting record on education issues, voters in the 9th Congressional District of Michigan have the opportunity to send Joe to an overdue retirement. Joe ranks dead last in support of nearly every educational initiative except those which pander to his religious base (fully supports prayer in schools and support withholding money from schools that don’t allow prayer in school. Don’t get me wrong – I’m happy to have governmental leaders that are grounded in a strong religious and moral background – I just don’t like them mixing their religion with my government. In March of 1994 Joe set the tone when he voted YES on giving federal aid only to schools allowing voluntary prayer. Unless I missed something that’s why the First Amendment includes: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Seems like Congressman Joe Knollenberg would like to have the Government specifically favor schools that allow prayer over those that don’t; his position moves across the line.
