Lawmaker Upset When Daughter’s Class Appeals For School Funding

Rep. Mike Stone, R-Lee, said school district officials had his 8-year-old daughter’s third-grade class at Tramway Elementary School write letters to elected officials, including him, to protest cuts in the proposed $19.7 billion state budget.

“I was extremely disappointed, but I tried not to show that in front of my daughter,” Stone said. “I don’t know that at any time we should use our third-grade students as lobbyists.”
