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:
Release from Discovery Education - announcing state contract
Appel's 2010 Financial Disclosure - screen shot of the Discovery
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.
