Education Negligence Created Environment for Rauner’s Extremist Bankruptcy Plan!

 

Van Pelt has failed on education, inaction led to bankruptcy threat

 

Patricia Van Pelt’s failure to take even the smallest interest in education is a key reason our schools are in such peril today facing a forced bankruptcy, more layoffs, and leaving our children uneducated and unprepared for a chance at a good job and a decent life.

Despite being in office for four years, Van Pelt hasn’t taken a single action on education even though it’s the most pressing issue facing our District and our city.
“I urge everyone to look at Van Pelt’s record and show me how her work matches our priorities in the 5th District,” said State Senate candidate Bob Fioretti. “She’s been a do-nothing, and that translates into hurting the constituents.”

She’s voted to weaken unions, she’s voted to cut pensions for public employees, and generally worked against working families. She also voted to make it easier for felons, even sex offenders, to become teachers.

Because of negligence by her and other legislators, we are in the position we now find ourselves: at risk of Gov. Rauner forcing our schools into bankruptcy, dismantling the Chicago Teacher’s Union and using our children as hostages in the fight.

Patricia Van Pelt does not understand the needs of her constitutency.
