Rob McKenna, candidate for Governor, says that June is a big month for the country and the state. He also said that 2012 is a big year.
McKenna spoke about education reform. Teachers will be graded on performance, not just seniority, he said. He also said that teachers are more concerned about unions than students and blasted their campaign of “fear.”
“We need to put children first in our education first in our education system and if it means offending some of the adults in charge, so be it,” he said.
McKenna called his campaign the most organized in a generation. The crowd applauded his statement saying he will appeal the King County court ruling against a two-thirds tax requirement.
McKenna finished by saying he would bring change to Washington.
“We are going to take this state in a new direction starting today.”
