Sen. Dierks Takes $10,000 from Teacher's Union
O'NEILL - Last week Senator Cap Dierks accepted a $10,000 donation from the Teacher’s Union.
When hearing about this Tyson commented, "It is very disappointing to me that with our state's $750 million shortfall, a few union leaders in Lincoln have decided that instead of advocating for responsible spending and limited government they would spend $10,000 on a single legislative race."
Tyson, an advocate of educational reform, continued, "This is exactly the type of centralized bureaucracy that is hampering Nebraska's educational system. The union's donation was drawn from the dues of hard working teachers, who have very little choice in determining who their money would support. In Lincoln I will be the voice of the local teachers, not the lobbyist concerns."
Tyson's educational campaign is focused on giving local schools and teachers the decision-making autonomy they deserve. "With less than a week before election day, news like this makes it even more important for me to get my message out to those who haven't heard it," said Tyson.
