Sen. Gillibrand To Vote Against Betsy Devos

January 25, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says that she’s going to vote against Betsy Devos:

A number of you have reached out to me about your concerns with Betsy DeVos’s nomination to be Education Secretary. I want to let you know that I share your concerns. I will be voting against her confirmation and I will urge my fellow Senators to do the same. Students, parents and teachers deserve an Education Secretary whose commitment to public education and safe schools will not waver. If public education fails, America fails, and I do not believe Mrs. DeVos shares my commitment to a strong public education system.
