Campaign Releases First Web Video Ad Against Proposition A Featuring School Superintendent Statements

(Oct 22, 2008) ST LOUIS – The campaign has released the first of many video advertisements in opposition to Proposition A.

The video, entitled, “School Officials Speak Out,” catalogs various school superintendents who have spoken out on Proposition A.

The ad release follows editorial endorsements from the St Louis Post Dispatch and Kansas City Star, in which they both call into question the claims of schools funding ‘promised’ by the casinos and both endorse a NO Vote on Proposition A.

Evelio Silvera, spokesperson for says the ad comes at time when the ‘Yes on A’ coalition is struggling for support.  “Not only are the major newspapers of the state calling for a No vote on Proposition A, all three Missouri teachers unions are refusing to endorse Prop A, instead calling it a gambling issue which some believe will have devastating consequences on those who can least afford to lose.”

Brent Belvins, Forsyth Superintendent, was quoted saying the Missouri Association of School Administrators is also failing to endorse Proposition A. features school superintendents all over the state who see this as a gambling issue, not an education issue, and who believe its wrong to try to persuade voters to expand gambling on the backs of our children and our schools.
