“Remember the Maine” and “Remember the Alamo” were rallying cries for our country in years past. A new mantra for Arizona should be “Remember the Republican Legislature!”
The financial decimation of our public educational institutions by the Republican co-trolled legislature, with no advice or input heeded from their duly elected Democratic colleagues, convinces me that major political party changes are needed in our state when the 2009 and 2010 November elections commence.
While we’re “remembering” our students, teachers, and schools in a positive way in the short term, let’s be sure to “remember” the Arizona legislative Republicans in a not-so-positive way in the long term.
