Pike, Rivers schedule public meeting
Legislative session ended on Saturday
Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Rep. Liz Pike (R-Camas) and Sen. Ann Rivers (R-La Center) recently announced that a public meeting will be held Friday, July 5, in Camas.
It's a meeting that is likely to be well attended, in the wake of an "open letter to public educators" posted on Facebook by Pike on June 21. The message criticized public school teachers for complaining about state legislators suspending cost of living increases.
"Congratulations on enjoying your last day of the school year," Pike's letter begins. "If I had the opportunity to choose my career all over, I would have opted to get the necessary degree and teaching certificate so that I too could enjoy summertime off with my children, spring break vacations, Christmas break vacations, paid holidays, a generous pension and health insurance benefits."
