Lowell Holtz: What’s next?
"It is clear that voters can’t trust Lowell Holtz to provide them with the full story," said Amanda Brink.
Madison — February 25th, 2017 news reports broke that while he was Superintendent of Whitnall School District, Lowell Holtz, used his tax-payer funded work day and school resources to compose emails to benefit his campaign. Dated May 25th, 2016, the email includes references to American Majority, Milwaukee Republican Caucus, Tommy Thompson, Governor Walker, Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and Don Pridemore.
“The last two weeks have uncovered a lot about Lowell Holtz. First – he has completely reversed his position on allowing school districts to adopt their own curriculum standards. Followed by Holtz plotting with unnamed business leaders to seize control of Wisconsin’s 5 largest school districts, and pay himself a $150,000 salary in the process.
Now we learn that while he was superintendent, Holtz was using tax-payer funded school resources and time to solicit campaign contributions and support from high level Republican donors.
It is clear that voters can’t trust Lowell Holtz to provide them with the full story. I’m almost afraid to ask: what will we find out next?”
