To The Daily Sun,
Senator Andrew Hosmer continues to set a new records for hypocrisy in his campaign. The state of N.H. pays school districts a set amount for each student in attendance. The student leaves, the payment stops. The senator says he worries about the "damage" to the public school as a result of our state law allowing education scholarships to low and moderate income families. But Andy has a problem, you see, while N.H. has 10,000 wealthy kids currently attending private schools, four of them have the same last name as his.
So, senator, how is it that your kids aren't causing the same "damage" to the schools when they attend private religious schools? Why aren't your kids causing the exact same reduction of state funding that you say is a valid reason to oppose this scholarship program?
Lastly, your campaign video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tC5DzCTb5A&feature=youtube_gdata_player ) said you and your wife sent four kids to private school to get "a superior education." My question is, why are your kids entitled to this superior education while other kids, who may not live on Governor's Island, have to stay in their assigned public schools? The commissioner of education said two weeks ago that 72 of our public schools in N.H. are not meeting annual yearly progress. Don't we want ALL kids to have access to that same superior educational opportunity just like your kids have?
