Republican Representative gives his donor’s pet charter school two million in tax payer dollars

Jason Fischer district 16 has some explaining to do.

These are
irrefutable facts.

Gary Chartrand is responsible for bringing the KIPP charter school to

Over the years Chartrand (and his friends and family) have given thousands of
dollars to Fischer.

Fischer had a two million dollar grant given to the KIPP charter school.
Line 111
Knowledge is Power
Program (KIPP) Jacksonville (HB 2851) (Senate Form 1756)……………………..
KIPP is not in
Fischer’s district.

He voted for a budget that gave our school district just an extra 47 cents per
pupil in discretionary spending. 
Those are all
irrefutable facts.

This wasn’t a bill either which most likely would have failed. No he just had the money inserted into the budget because that is how broken Tallahassee has become after twenty years of republican rule. 

Now some of you might be thinking why should I care what a representative
in Jacksonville does, well there are a couple reasons, first that is two
million in Tax Payer dollars, that came from all of us and second, his donor, Gary
Chartrand is also on the state board of education, and let that sink in.

Chartrand the founder and benefactor of the KIPP charter school
gave Fischer thousands of dollars and Fischer rewarded him with two million for
his charter school.

Where outrageous it is just standard operating procedure
from the republicans in Tallahassee who operate as if they are above the law.

Speaker Richard Corcoran’s wife is a charter school magnet
and he joins a half dozen other legislators who either they benefit or their
families benefit from public school kneecapping legislation.

The republican party is not leading us, they are lording
over us as they enrich themselves and their donors and they do so at the expense
of the teaching profession and public education and enough is enough.
