(Beloit, WI) – Dr. Lowell Holtz, candidate for Wisconsin Superintendent of Public Instruction, announced today more legislator and organizational endorsements of his campaign.  Currently, Holtz is endorsed by 24 members of the Wisconsin State Legislature (detailed in a list below), Pro-Life Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) PAC.  Holtz’s endorsements have doubled in the past week as momentum and excitement has grown for his common sense message for education reform in Wisconsin.
Julaine Appling, WFA PAC director, said of their endorsement of Holtz, “We are honored to endorse a candidate of the caliber of Dr. Lowell Holtz for this important office. Dr. Holtz’s personal educational preparation and attainment, coupled with his hands-on experience are extremely well suited for this position. But more important to us is his character and his positions on the critical issues surrounding education today.”  She continued, “Dr. Holtz understands that the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Department of Public Instruction don’t need to be adversarial to school choice. He rightly believes parents, not the state, are ultimately responsible for the education of their children; and he is therefore rightly supportive of giving parents more options for fulfilling that responsibility. We’ve not had a State Superintendent of Public Instruction with that mindset for decades. This is the election where that needs to change.”
In a statement, Pro-Life Wisconsin proclaimed, “Lowell Holtz’s belief in the dignity of the human person makes him the only choice for pro-life voters in the upcoming spring primary and general elections.”
