If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS tweets from the past week when they were first posted. And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.
- When he was still a state senator, I was in a closed-door meeting with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick where he laughed at how hard teachers worked for so little pay. It’s now past time for Texas Teachers to laugh Dan Patrick out of office. (By @LYSNation)
- I would like to apologize for my last tweet. Some thought I was insinuating that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick does not care about Texas Teachers. My intent was to clearly state that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick does not care about Texas Teachers. (By @LYSNation)
- As anti-public education candidates lie to you this election season about how much they love teachers, remember that the Texas Senate held funding hostage with vouchers. Translation? “We starve your schools unless you let us privatize them.” (By @pastors4txkids)
- When Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick runs his faux pro-teacher ads, remember that he demeans educators as “educrats” when he gives speeches to astroturf groups: “We’re going to have a big battle with the educrats,” Dan Patrick said. (By @johnkuhntx)
- If you believe Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s latest political ad about giving teachers a $10K raise, call me… I have some ocean front property in Arizona I’m DYING to sell to someone. (By @jmacmcgrath)
- When you see the new Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s commercial and you hear him say $10,000 for teachers and less for stadiums and structures, he is lying to you and playing on our ignorance. Structures and stadiums are paid for by your bond elections and are determined locally. (By @DFTigers)
- Now is the time. This isn’t about political parties, it is about removing those in power who are not taking care of our children. (By @dr_asbury)
- Hey, (PAC) Empower Texans, I’m blowing the whistle on you because the only party I can think of that asks people to rat out their colleagues for “suspicious behavior” is the communist party. Last I checked, it’s still legal to vote how we want and for whom. (By @janagryffin)
- When you hear statewide elected officials harping about high property taxes, remember the state budget they approved was based on the assumption of a 7% increase in property values in each year of the biennium, reducing their share of public education funding. (By @michaelballCPA)
- Get your hands on The Fundamental Five (Cain & Laird). Cain and Laird (@LYSNation) boil it down to 5 high-yield strategies. A can’t miss book. (By @vhsaldana)
Think. Work. Achieve.
