SEIU 2015: Winning for Students & School Staff

Dear Legislators,

We are school support staff. We are the people who transport our children safely to and from school every day in every condition of weather. We make sure our children do not go hungry through the day. We care for our youngest, and prepare them so they will be ready for school. We support the teacher in the classroom. We take care of the records and reports. We make sure our facilities are clean and maintained and the heat and lights are on. We help kids with special needs succeed.

We are the people who work hard behind the scenes to make sure that learning happens in the classroom. We need your support to make sure that our schools have the resources and people we need to help our children succeed.

Please support the work we do by voting for:

-Creating a stable, equitable funding source for schools and kids
- Working to equalize school funding across districts
- Expanding access to a healthy breakfast for all elementary students
- Increased investments in early learning


This year, with a $1.9 billion dollar surplus, we can do all four. We believe the surplus is best used to re-invest in education, making it more equitable for all students. We do not need to give it back to the wealthiest Minnesotans by cutting the Estate Tax and fourth-tier business tax.

These proposals will move us towards a better Minnesota where all children have a chance to succeed. We believe everyone should pay their fair share to support our kids and schools, and that schools deserve a stable source of funding.
