Re: “Angel fights for school funding” (letter, 7-28).

The writer asserts that state Rep. Jan Angel solidly supports education, yet washingtonvotes.org shows a different story.

Angel opposed: HB 2731 directing implementation of a basic education program of early learning for children who are educationally at-risk; HB 2867 relating to early education; HB 6759 to plan for early education; HB1762 encouraging parental involvement in education; and several other bills impacting education.

Reviewing many of the 1,530 bills in 2009/2010 and the 10 bills sponsored by Angel leads me to believe that Sumner Schoenicke is a better choice. We need a doctor in the house, and voting Schoenicke would give us one.
