To the Editor:
Ron Robinson, a Democrat and Sylva businessman, has launched his campaign to become the next senator from District 50, attempting to replace incumbent Republican Sen. Jim Davis of Franklin. Ron recognizes that the ill-advised attack on the funding of public schools by the current N.C. Legislature must be reversed. The voucher system would, if ever implemented, siphon off public funds designated for public schools.
Ron knows that public education in North Carolina has provided the means for people to improve their own lives as well the lives of all North Carolinians — people of all incomes and people of all races and nationalities. He will work to ensure that public education money continues to flow to public schools as our state laws have intended for nearly two centuries.
