Hi, I'm Elayne Harmer. My husband, David Harmer is running for Congress in California's 11th district. I'm appalled at the negative attacks Jerry McNerney is throwing at David. They're absolutely lies.

One especially false claim is that David wants to abolish the public school system. Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm a substitute teacher in our public schools. Each of our 4 children has attended public schools since they were in kindergarten, and David is in his 3rd year as a local officer in the Windemere Ranch Middle School Education Fund. They've worked really hard to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to reduce class sizes and to provide new technology in the classroom.

David believes as I do that schools should be run at a local level. State and Federal government should step aside and let local school boards, parents, and teachers make the decisions that affect our children.

I'm so disappointed that Jerry McNerney has twisted David's good work in educational reform and is using it to attack David. David is completely dedicated to great education and he fully supports the public school system.

Thank you for listening.
