Response from the Legislator

Milton Friedman was perhaps the greatest economist of the last century and without a doubt, the greatest of my generation. His record for being correct on economic theory is astounding - and I should believe you and this mailing instead?


Thank you for the courtesy of your reply.

Yes, I do believe you should carefully consider the central role that public education has played in making our nation's society so creative, open and free. Any re-direction of public tax dollars (in the form of vouchers) that weakens public education weakens our comity and our capacity to understand each others' differing perspectives.

I am a proud product of New Hampshire public schooling. I believe public representatives such as yourself have a responsibility to defend and strengthen our public schools.
