Thank you Rep. Reichert!
US Rep. Dave Reichert from Washington's 8th Congressional District was one of only eight Republicans in the US House who voted against funding school vouchers in Washington, D.C.
Considering the current contention in Congress, Reichert's vote was quite courageous. His vote was also indicative of the independence Reichert has shown on public education during his time in office. It's important to recognize lawmakers who step up and do what's right for kids -- even if it means breaking with their political party. Send him an email and thank him!
