Paul LeVota is a Representative for Lee’s Summit and a Democrat who leans across the aisle to get things done.

As a member of the Budget committee, Paul is battling for a budget that is reasonable, responsible, increases funding for schools and protects the truly vulnerable of the state of Missouri.

I’s hoping for his support for special needs scholarship tax credit legislation, HB 1886, if caring for the truly vulnerable of Missouri is something he’s passionate about.

Over 12,000 students with IEPs live in Jackson County. I imagine that many are well served and are able to improve within the public school setting, but we desperately need an option in Missouri that takes the burden of those families whose children are not improving with the help that’s available. Rep. LeVota should come out in favor of this measure and speak up for those students, and stop viewing public education as the perfect and only solution.
