Default Education Matters Team was funded by investors and Gov. Christie supporters

I found the following information quite interesting when you follow
the of the ELEC reports provided online.

The Education Matters Team received two large contributions from Mark
& Erica Gerson ($15,600) and Putnam & Patricia Crafts ($15,600) which
is available on line
(http://www.elec.state.nj.us/ELECRepo...cation+matters). Search under "education matters Team".

-Mark Gerson is the Chairman of Gerson Lehman Group, is a research
company that seek investment opportunities
(http://gersonlehrmangroup.com/Home/Story).

-Putnam and Patricia Crafts of Gem Foundation supported Christopher
Christie in 2012

This was no secret, David Tepper and his group are serious about their interest in education reform. It is up to the community to push these types of investor out.

Especially as seeing as though, the individual that won wasn't brought to the table by the Education Matters Team. Wow111 How much money did they waste again... I was also told they have a great deal of campaign debt. Go figure...

Respect....
