Keeping Montclair Residents Informed

Right-Wing Attack
Dear Resident,

A right-wing, neo-conservative group calling itself "The Sunlight Policy Center," is trying to buy our local election in Montclair.  Because I stand for everything their right wing group is against, they are spending big bucks against our campaign. Here are the facts about the "Sunlight Policy Center."

The Sunlight Policy Center is closely related to the neo-conservative American Enterprise Institute (affiliated with figures such as Dick Cheney and John Bolton).  The express purpose of the Sunlight Policy Center is to push a pro-charter school, pro-common core, pro-corporatization of our educational system agenda.

The person who runs the group is a former donor to and supporter of Chris Christie, but decided to shift his allegiance to Jeb Bush because Chris Christie denounced Common Core.  Below is an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article on the topic.

"As some GOP donors assess the field, Common Core is one factor used to evaluate the candidates. It has helped tip the balance in some cases, notably to the detriment of Mr. Christie.

Mike Lilley, a former Goldman Sachs bond trader who supported Mr. Christie in the past, said the governor’s denunciation of Common Core was one of a number of reasons he is now backing Mr. Bush. “The fact that he’s stood there firmly while Walker, Jindal and Christie have walked back, matters more,” Mr. Lilley said of Mr. Bush. “You should like people who stand up for their principles.”

Our public schools in Montclair are a big part of what makes Montclair special.  I am committed to supporting our students and excellent public schools.  I have committed to appointing someone to serve on the Board of School Estimate in my stead (the state statute provides a lot of flexibility for this) and will appoint independent members of the Board of Education who are equally committed to providing a high quality education to our students at the best possible value to taxpayers.

Thank You,
Sean M. Spiller
