To my Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz: Gentlemen, it is time to get on the right side of history. Vote AGAINST the confirmation of one of the most unqualified, inept, inappropriate and uneducated of the president's cabinet nominations. You have only to look no further than the unmitigated and disastrous, Betsy DeVos train wreck of charter schools in the state of Michigan. PLEASE DO NOT let her do this to the great state of Texas, the rest of our magnificent country and our public educational system that is envied the world over. VOTE NO to Betsy DeVos and send your Texas constituents a resounding message that you will not just follow blindly with your vote, but will make sure that ALL Texas children receive a well-deserved, quality public education. If I have yet to persuade you to do the right thing, let me assure you that your political career is on the line with this crucial vote. If you do not vote no to this confirmation of such a ridiculously low-information person, Betsy DeVos (who had no business even being nominated to this Dept. of Education position), your constituency, Republicans, Democrats, et. al., will make sure that you will face fierce and powerful opposition in your upcoming election cycles. This is not a partisan issue! Texans will not forget if you don't vote NO. We will come together and force you out. Don't believe me. Maybe you should start paying attention to the unrest in your own state.
