Today’s primary election a chance to voice your opinion about Rep Mike Lair
Just a reminder that today is your chance, if you live in the 7th District (Grundy, Linn, Livingston counties) to voice your opinion about the current Education Appropriations Committee Chairman who is your state representative. You remember Representative Mike Lair, who put an $8 line item into the budget for tin foil this last session? Today he has a Republican challenger, Dennis McDonald.
From my February 19th post Missouri Budget Amendment for Tin Foil Hats
The Kansas City Star reported that the House Appropriations committee approved an amendment for $8 for tin foil in next year’s Education Budget. The money was to be used for “two rolls of high density aluminum to create headgear designed to deflect drone and/or black helicopter mind reading and control technology.” The proud sponsor of this insulting amendment was Representative Mike Lair of the 7th district. It was added to make a point that “some lawmakers aren’t too pleased by what they consider to be paranoia about new Common Core standards for public schools,” according to the Star.
If you want someone with that attitude about common core to continue to represent you then go ahead and vote for the incumbent with name recognition. If you are tired of being treated like a second class citizen, then vote for someone else.
