“I believe that the education of our children is the key to the future success of our county and state. I also know and understand that our schools need to be fully funded each year to be able to function. Great schools require great teachers, and they should be paid accordingly. I will work to support our schools and our teachers.”
~ PAT MONTGOMERY
