Opportunity Knocks

Susan Notes:
Juanita Doyon, a Washington mom and the woman resisters across the country know as the Button Queen (see http://susanohanian.org/buttons.html

Just think about it: grassroots takeover of the Standardista-run state department of education. People Power.

And you can help.

Hardworking, brave, grassroots candidate in Washington State eager, willing and able to start a trend of real educational improvement and real state-level resistance to high-stakes insanity is in need of support-- in the form of money! (any amount $1 to $1350) Will work for kids.

PS Received the following two letters of endorsement this week:

Candidate Doyon,

At the June 7, 2004 meeting of the 38th Legislative District Democrats, you were voted a unanimous endorsement by the members of the 38th Legislative District.

You may use this endorsement publicly.

I wish you success in your upcoming election.

Marian Lewis Harrison
Chair-- 38th LD

Dear Ms. Doyon,

On behalf of the Tulalip Tribes, I am pleased to inform you that the board of Directors has voted unanimously to endorse your candidacy for the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

The fact that you have been an active participant in the education of four children in the Washington State public School System, have served on a large variety of education committees, have been a leader in the PTA and are a published author in the field of education is clear evidence that you have the credentials for this public office. Your leadership in the field of education and your advocacy for children is highly regarded. We trust that you would honor the sovereignty of Tribes and encourage a healthy government-to-government relationship in education.

The Tulalip Tribes supports qualified candidates of Native American heritage in their efforts to serve as public officials. We are pleased with your advocacy of all children in Washington State. We are grateful for your willingness to take on the often-thankless role of government servant. We look forward in anticipation to your successful efforts this election year.

Stanley G. Jones, Sr.
Chairman, Tulalip Tribes Board of Directors
Marie Zackuse
Vice Chairwoman, Tulalip Tribes Board of Directors

— Juanita Doyon
