After receiving $4,000 from an indicted video poker executive, Mike Stone saw no reason at all to give the money away. But that’s no surprise. After all, it was Stone who organized a closed door meeting with lawmakers and gambling executives, and it was Stone who got caught by the News and Observer with illegal video poker machines in his grocery store!
Because of the budget cuts that Mike Stone voted for, schools don’t have the textbooks and other critical supplies they need, so teachers are having to find the money elsewhere. There’s a new site called Donors Choose that allows individual teachers to request funding for specific classroom projects. Usually it’s a set of new books or materials that enhance the learning experience for their students.
Sign our petition calling on Mike Stone to donate the $4000 of gambling money to local teachers who need the money for projects in their classrooms NOW.
