Over a million dollars and you know that education is something that I feel very deeply I -- Over a billion dollars to education. And I just think that these cuts are unacceptable news there's a lot of issues that that I feel bad stuff. You'll -- -- a strong voice and and I -- just feel deep in my heart that's how I can -- very effective solid enough. And indeed the legislature. Now -- -- served on or no school board for what fourteen years. Actually pulled forceful terms sixteen years I do not -- I know. After its terms of that was -- never pursued a fifth term.
