Kentucky Teachers Join Together for “Won’t Be Bullied By Bevin” Press Conference in Louisville
With less than two weeks until election day, Jacqueline Coleman joined Kentucky teachers and workers in the labor community for a press conference in Louisville for the sixth stop on the statewide “Won’t Be Bullied By Bevin” tour to keep the heat on Matt Bevin and his failed record of insulting teachers and attacking working families. The “Won’t Be Bullied By Bevin” tour has previously visited Henderson, Pikeville, Bowling Green, Paducah, and Lexington.
“I’m proud to stand alongside teachers and workers in the labor community today to hold Matt Bevin accountable for insulting and attacking teachers,” said Jacqueline Coleman. “As an educator, I know firsthand how hard teachers work to build a brighter future for Kentucky’s children. Our educators and all of our families deserve leadership in Frankfort that will put public education first – and that’s exactly what a Beshear/Coleman administration will do.”
“Teachers are on the forefront of economic development by ensuring students have the skills they need to succeed,” Maddie Shepard, a Louisville Public School teacher. “We work around the clock bettering our commonwealth, and the last thing we need is a governor who disparages and disrespects us. This November, I’ll be supporting Andy Beshear and Jacqueline Coleman, the only ticket that champions public education and protecting teacher’s pensions.”
