Letter to the editor | The right priorities

July 11, 2013 

In the wake of Gov. Tom Corbett’s third straight on-time budget, the governor must be commended on a multitude of fronts.

First and foremost, he showed tremendous leadership in getting a budget done — something Democrats in Washington have found to be unnecessary.

Secondly, Corbett’s increase in funding for K-12 education shows the importance he places on our children’s future.

By placing such a high priority on basic education funding, Corbett is putting our children first.
