Biz groups come out against Strong Start Tucson education initiative

Opponents say Prop. 204 leaves out too many details, backers call tax measure 'vital' for kids

A coalition of business groups has launched an effort to derail Prop. 204, a sales-tax initiative that would direct $50 million yearly to early childhood education in Tucson. Proponents say it's a necessary investment, but opponents say the measure lacks oversight, with some calling it a "voucher" system.

Why do these people hate education so much?
They’re trying to “sell” Tucson to Amazon and other big employers (so-called) yet want to torpedo early education.
Guess they’re all products of private/charter schools.

In addition, I believe the only city council candidate that firmly supports Prop 204 is Mike Cease, the Green Party candidate running against incumbent Steve Kozachik in Ward 6.

Mike Chase is not part of the Democratic Establishment, and is therefore not beholden to them.
