Guest Opinion: Wahls cares about education


State Senate candidate Zach Wahls is a strong supporter of public education.

As a resident of Scott Precinct, I proudly support Zach Wahls for Senate District 37. Having been fortunate to know and watch Zach in action while I served on the School Board, I am honored to support such a compassionate and energetic leader. Zach cares deeply about the issues that affect all of us, and he is a strong believer in public education as an opportunity for all children.

Zach’s priorities for innovative education, college readiness, and universal pre-kindergarten education are the issues that speak directly to my heart. He will fight to keep tuition affordable. He will fight for universal pre-kindergarten education. He will fight for keeping our students safe and education accessible for everyone. He will fight for all of us.
