"I've HAD ENOUGH" Card Campaign
We need to let our legislators know that we are not happy with their decision making and Enough is Enough! Following our successful bus trip, our next goal is to collect over 3,000 cards from Teachers, ESP’s, Custodial, Food Service and yes, even administration who fill them with exactly what we want changed in Tallahassee. If each school/site turns in at least 65 cards we will make our goal. If you need a card to fill out, please call Lucy Bravo at 772-464-6430.
