Correction of Blog Posting Concerning Elizabeth Coggs

Filed under: Correction — millerlf @ 11:30 am

I recently posted a personal blog in response to a blog by Katy Venskus, Wisconsin State Director of Democrats for Education Reform (DFER).

In the blog I referred to a letter posted by DFER calling on legislators in New Jersey to support voucher legislation now being considered in that state. The letter included Elizabeth Coggs’ signature as a supporter of vouchers in Wisconsin and supporter of expanding vouchers to the state of New Jersey.

I received a letter from Elizabeth Coggs informing me that her name was added to the DFER letter in error and that the Democrats for Education Reform had provided a written letter of apology to her.

Also, in my blog I questioned Elizabeth Coggs’ participation in the recall efforts. Elizabeth Coggs did participate in a variety of ways in the effort to support the Democratic Party’s work in the recall election.

While I clearly have a difference of opinion with Elizabeth Coggs on issues of school privatization and vouchers, I am happy to set the record straight on both these areas and regret passing on incorrect information.

My blog does not in any way represent the MPS Board of School Directors or any of its members. I am representing my perspective and my perspective alone.



  1. It seems odd that Coggs’ name was added in “error”… groups don’t endorse people by mistake. Maybe Coggs didn’t like the negative publicity?
