Supporters officially kicked off the campaign for the Quality Education and Jobs Initiative, Proposition 204, on Sunday in Phoenix and Tucson. Advocates handed out t-shirts, yard signs and bumper stickers and encouraged supporters to paint “YES on 204” on their car windows. The proposition provides a floor for education spending in Arizona and will strategically reinvest in an education system that suffered the largest cuts in the country in the past four years.
