School Protest Group May Come To Breezy Point Next

The Brainerd woman who organized 60 life-jacket wearing protestors to talk to lawmakers on Tuesday said the next step may be to organize another group to protest at the governor’s fishing opener Pequot Lakes in May. Ann Holub said the state’s school funding system is broken and needs fixing. The group made its case to five area lawmakers during the trip to St. Paul. Holub said she's not sure it would be possible to organize another large trip to the state capital but perhaps smaller groups could travel on their own to talk to lawmakers. Someone suggested that Governor Pawlenty has not done all he could. Holub said perhaps the group could "pay a visit to the governor when he comes up here fishing in May." Area lawmakers told Holub they’re trying to convince other legislators of public education’s difficult situation. This legislative session is to end on May 19th.
