Friend,

With millions of ballots left to come in, we are digging in and waiting for every vote to be counted. The kids of California are in it for the long haul and we are too. I’m so proud of the broad coalition we built, and I thank the thousands of educators, students, and public education advocates who communicated directly with voters until the polls closed yesterday.

I ran for Superintendent of Public Instruction because I want to deliver to all Californians the promise that public education delivered to me – that all students, no matter their background and no matter their obstacles, can succeed with a great public education.

We talked to voters across the state, and told them what this election means for each of us: It means giving every kid the opportunity to succeed in the 21st century, not just the ones that show the most potential. It means funding our public schools at the levels they deserve, not pouring money into our jails and prisons. It means providing mental health treatment for kids, not arming them with guns. It means supporting our teachers, not demonizing them. And it means stopping Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos’s anti-education agenda from coming anywhere near California’s public schools.

Thank you to everyone who voted and to everyone who worked so hard to get us this far. We will continue to keep you updated as nearly 4 million votes are counted. Please consider keeping this fight alive with another contribution, it costs money to keep campaigns running post election day. Thanks for sticking with us in the long run.

–Team Tony
