Gary Alexander 2nd LD


"It has always been one of my top goals to develop a sound and sustainable funding plan for public education. I have advocated for funding education first and I have been a strong advocate for reforms, including performance evaluations and flexibility. I will be on the task force to prepare and plan to meet the McCleary decision and to ensure we build in the proper accountability."
