The Florida Democratic Party today released a new ad, “Control,” highlighting what it describes as “how Republican Ellyn Bogdanoff cut funding for education and supports a extreme voucher scheme that will drain millions from our local public schools and give our tax dollars to out of state corporations who are trying to profit off our children’s education.”
The ad is airing on major TV stations.
“When Republicans like Ellyn Bogdanoff weren’t cutting billions of dollars from our education system, they were supporting a voucher scheme that drains millions of our tax dollars from our local public schools and gives our money to out of state corporations who want to profit off our children’s education,” said Scott Arceneaux, Florida Democratic Party Executive Director. “Strong public schools are the pathway to growing our economy and helping middle class families succeed — but our schools are suffering because the GOP and Bogdanoff put corporations and out of state companies ahead of parents, teachers, and our students. That’s a bad plan for Florida’s middle class families, a bad plan for our schools, and a reckless and fiscally irresponsible way to waste our tax dollars.”
