JACK REED JR: Initiative 42 will prioritize education

For these four reasons, Lisa and I will be voting FOR Initiative 42 on Tuesday:

n We believe Mississippi's most powerful enemy is poverty.

n We believe that a good public education system -- pre-K through 12th grade -- is our most valuable resource to help our citizens become self-sufficient Mississippians.

n Given their consistent past refusals to fully fund a Minimum Adequate Education Program, our legislators have demonstrated that it is not their priority.

n By voting FOR Initiative 42 we as citizens who care about our state and each other are simply saying we want this to be the priority.

JACK REED JR.,

former mayor

Tupelo
