Christian Palmer, Communications Director for the Prop 123 campaign spoke with Yuma Rotarians about challenges Arizona's schools face to retain teachers and bring Arizona's public education ranking up from 50th. 

Christian explained Prop 123 would be funded from state land trust monies (currently valued at $75B), taking $220M a year over the next 10 years.

The state would then allocate the funding for public education, including teacher retention/competitive pay and use towards existing and future litigation.

Christian expressed his appreciation for Yuma's legislation and Chamber of Commerce for their support and hopes Yuma Rotarians will vote in support of Prop 123 on May 17th.
