I continue to be disgusted and appalled by the political maneuvering by Gov. Mike Pence, State Board of Education members Tony Walker and Daniel Elsener, House Speaker Brian Bosma and others who have blatantly taken control of our education system which, by Indiana statute, is the function of the state superintendent — a duly elected official.

I urge public school teachers, public school administrators, local school boards, local teacher organizations (at one time they were considered unions until the Republican Legislature stripped the bargaining process), retired educators, along with the Indiana State Teachers Association to not only do a letter-writing campaign to these leaders but to begin the political process to nominate Glenda Ritz for governor.

After all, Glenda garnered more votes than Gov. Pence.

I am making room in my front yard for her sign.
