I am writing because parents and their students do well with Sen. Torrey Westrom fighting for us on education. Torrey Westrom has a solid record of supporting increases to the per-pupil funding formula that is the lifeblood for our rural schools.

Since his last election in 2012 for the Minnesota Senate, he's fought for a steady increase in the funding formula, instead of allowing Twin Cities politicians to try and siphon off education money to just fund metro schools.

Torrey has stood up and said a student should be treated like a student no matter where they live. Teachers, students and parents need to know they have a friend in Sen. Westrom for supporting education funding and new technology, which is why I urge all voters to keep Westrom's common sense working for our students.
