Former U.S. Congressman Frank Riggs Endorses Proposition 123
PHOENIX — Former U.S. Congressman Frank Riggs today endorsed Proposition 123 because the initiative is a conservative, innovative solution to funding our K-12 public schools.
“I think Proposition 123 is the best, conservative solution out there to providing increased, stable funding for Arizona’s K-12 public schools,” Frank Riggs, Scottsdale businessman, former U.S. Congressman and nonprofit CEO, said. “It will put $3.5 billion into our K-12 schools without raising income taxes, money to address critical education needs, promote classroom teaching and learning, and recruit and retain talented educators. Please join me in voting ‘YES’ on Prop 123 on May 17; it’s innovative, it’s creative and it’s exactly what we need to support our teachers, students and Arizona’s future.”
“As a former United States Congressman, member of the House Education Committee and a small business owner, Frank Riggs knows exactly the situation Arizona faces right now,” Sharon Harper, chairman of the Let’s Vote Yes for Arizona Schools said. “He understands that we need to fund our schools and keep teachers from leaving the state to give Arizona’s kids the future they deserve. That’s why need we need to vote YES on May 17.”
