That Yellow primary ballot setting alone at your house can not be more important than ever to turn in.
For our community here in Quincy, the odd-numbered year elections are more important to our future than those even year elections when politicians spend millions to make promises and sway your vote, that in the end never truly represent you in our representative republic. In that ballot at your home represents the most representative republic government you can get in America today. Those on the ballot are your neighbors, and you can see and talk to them at every public hearing, the grocery store, or that Quincy Better Block that was just a blast for our community.
The Federal and State government is pushing for critical race theory and anti-racism programming in public schools which discriminates based on race, color, or national origin in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Civil rights Act of 1964, and the Washington State Constitution Article IX.
Our State Constitution states, “the paramount duty of the state to make ample provision for the education of all children - without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex.”
Your local school board member has the authority to set curricula and programs to be emphasized in our school district no matter what the federal and state wants. Do you want your primary kids being taught sex curriculum coming out of Seattle and Olympia, or do you want a school board member that will protect your rights as a parent and grandparent to teach your kids the values you want them taught? You are right to think it is your right to bring up your child in the way your family wants to discuss race and sex.
There is only one local candidate on the ballot that believes our schools are not where your kids should be taught to be racist or thought about sex in violation of every constitutional right, civil right, or parental individual sovereign right. That candidate is Chad Lower, a Quincy dad, and a Captain that takes the responsibility for people’s lives every day in the air. He will take the responsibility for your family’s life to the right to a sovereign education that does not infringe on your family’s rights.
