Attention Education Advocates – Here’s the new House Ed Committee.
Delighted to see our newly elected Jeffco House Rep from HD25, Lisa Cutter, assigned to this committee!
A few other things to make note of: 3 of these legislators are returning to the committee from last session: Rep. McLachlan, Rep. Buckner, and Rep. Exum. That’s good because the rest of the legislators who now sit on this committee are new. They will have to learn a lot to get up to speed before the session starts January 4th – one month from now.
If you are reading this and you are in one of these legislator’s districts, and are planning to connect with them, know them personally, and/or want to be involved in lobbying your legislator about supporting public education, please let us know. Working together will be important.
