STATE SENATE CANDIDATE JOHN LABRUZZO USES THE TRUTH TO DISCREDIT APPEL LAWSUIT OVER COMMON CORE

LaBruzzo provides facts to back up campaign literature proving Conrad Appel supports and profited from Common Core


METAIRIE – Oct. 11, 2015 - State Senate Incumbent Candidate Conrad Appel is trying to use the court system to keep the public from knowing the truth about his record. Appel is suing to stop State Senate Candidate John LaBruzzo from putting out the facts. Appel is asking for a temporary restraining order against LaBruzzo's latest campaign literature, in an effort to hide the truth behind a lawsuit.
 
The Facts: On November 30, 2010, seven (7) days before the BESE awarded a contract to Discovery Education (a common core supporting company), Conrad Appel purchased Discovery stocks.  


See the following supporting Documents Attached:


Press Release from Discovery Education - announcing state contract 

Appel's 2010 Financial Disclosure - screen shot of the Discovery stocks disclosure

Appel's 2010 Financial Disclosure (full document)

 


In addition, see the Louisiana Voice article which summarizes the purchase and the value increase of the stock: http://louisianavoice.com/2014/03/27/senate-education-chairman-appel-purchases-discovery-stock-week-before-company-enters-into-state-techbook-agreement/


"My opponent has called into question my comments regarding his financial gains and support of Common Core," John LaBruzzo said. "I am providing authentic documents from a research company which shows further proof of my statements regarding Senator Appel. He is a staunch supporter of Common Core. I stand behind my comments to the voters. The lawsuit filed against me by my opponent Conrad Appel is a waste of taxpayers money and the judiciary's time. The facts are the facts, and Senator Appel just doesn't want you to know them. Common Core is not good for Louisiana, but it was good for Senator Appel's pocketbook."
 
District 9 voters have a right to know the facts. As chairman of the Senate Education Committee, Conrad Appel is one of Louisiana's biggest supporters of Common Core, and is responsible for diluting our schools with its failing outcomes. John LaBruzzo is working to remove Common Core. Now, Appel is changing his tune in an effort to distance himself from the controversial Common Core.
John LaBruzzo is available for interviews.
