Best January day for knocking on doors! Lots of people were home and anxious to talk (as was Barnaby, the dog). I spoke with several teachers today concerned with funding on the local and state level, lack of salary increases with an increased workload. Maryland schools have dropped from #1 a few years ago to #6 this year (Education Week). This affects kids, our economy, and property values. There is much we can do on the state level to reverse this trend. Join the campaign. #stronger9B.
