I, like most of you was inspired by The Woman's March across the country. As the Education Lt. Governor I will make sure that our female students know that college majors and job titles have no gender, women are to be treated with dignity and respect, we shall have equal pay for equal work, health decisions are between a woman and her doctor, and no one has the right to touch you without your permission. I am a proud feminist, raised by a single mom Ruth who was a riveter in World War 2, my wife Cindy is a 2nd grade teacher and my daughter Ashley is an advocate for teachers and children at AFTNM. The women in my life have showed me the power of women.
