The group pushing for a ballot initiative aimed at fully funding the Mississippi Adequate Education Program is hiring door to door canvassers.

Here’s a Facebook post seeking workers:

“* What: PAID Door to Door Canvassing for a petition drive in the Gulf Coast and Hattiesburg Areas

* Purpose: To get signatures for a petition that if enacted would require the legislature to fully fund the Mississippi Adequate Education Funding Formula.

* This is NON-PARTISAN with overwhelming support from Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike.

* Pay: $10.00 an Hour

* Hours: Between 10 and 40 a week, depending on your availability in evenings and on weekends

* How long will it last?: All of August and likely September

*GREAT Opportunity for students, anyone needing extra cash for the Summer, or for those who love the grass roots side of public action and who believe in our schools and our students!”

Makes you wonder where they are getting their funds as well as how truthful they are being in explaining exactly how this initiative will effect both the legislative process and the state budget. But hey, it’s an issue near and dear to many making it ripe to pull at the heartstrings without getting into the actual process.
