ELECTION: Randi Becker deserves to be re-elected

Our families, communities, and public schools have no greater advocate than state 2nd District Sen. Randi Becker. She has fought hard to ensure schools have the funding they need and school boards have local control.

When I was superintendent of the Eatonville School District, I worked side by side with Becker on many issues important to our schools and community.

Her opponent is using desperate last-minute emotional appeals, criticizing her for responding to the Eatonville school board’s request for legislation last year. The board’s four-day school week idea was defeated and rightly buried.

Bruce Lachney should be ashamed and embarrassed; he was an elected Eatonville School Board member himself until he quit and never finished the job voters elected him to do.

When it comes to our children, families and education, Becker has earned re-election.
