Web letter: Maybe the voters need to elect Ritz governor

I’m tired of the Republicans trying to marginalize Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz’s position.

The voters of this state elected her because we felt her positions on education were the best for the children of our state.

I don’t want our schools privatized like our toll road was. Our public schools should remain forever public.

Now the Center for Education and Career Innovation, created by Gov. Mike Pence, is trying to get the law changed to basically wipe out the will of the people of Indiana and eliminate her position.

Let me be the first to say: Glenda Ritz for governor in 2016. Maybe then the kids will come first, good sense will prevail and Medicaid will be extended to people not covered by the Affordable Care Act and the mean-spirited sore losers would respect what the voters want.
