SECRETARY OF EDUCATION Confirmation Vote is Tuesday, Jan. 31. Reports indicate that over a million emails have been sent and 1,000,000 people signed onto one petition to block the appointment, and that Capitol phones have been jammed with calls since the Senate announced a delay of vote due to ethics concerns. Sen. Tammy Baldwin has announced that she will not support this appointment. Wisconsin residents with concerns about Ms. DeVos can reach Sen. Ron Johnson by email or by phoning any of his 3 offices: Milwaukee Office (414) 276-7282; Oshkosh Office (920) 230-7250; Washington D.C. Office (202) 224-5323. His voicemail box has been filling up often, but it does get cleaned out so if you can’t leave a message the first time you call, PLEASE call back again the next day.
Here’s an article outlining some of the top reasons to oppose Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.
