Brownback’s office attacks ‘ever-litigating’ school districts

Posted on

Gov. Sam Brownback’s communications office blasted “ever-litigating” school districts and attorneys in a message to supporters Tuesday evening.

Since Brownback won re-election in November, his communications office has been sending regular newsletters to supporters via grassroots e-mail Listserv, made up primarily of people who were on the campaign’s e-mail list.

In the most recent message, Melika Willoughby, Brownback’s deputy director of communications, criticizes the media and attorneys for Schools for Fair Funding, the group representing school districts suing the state for more education funding. She calls their criticism “flimsy” and “easily refuted.”
