Douglas County Education Alliance…what a folksy, yet important sounding name. But don’t get it confused with the other gazillion “down-home” groups that support the regime (aka Board of Education) and the Superintendent. This NEW group is coming out in full force and hitting all media outlets!
Perhaps you’ve received robo-calls? Maybe you’ve seen their weird ad on TV? Or Seen this ad on Facebook?
You may think that it is just another local group that is singing the tired (oh, soooo tired) tune about the evils of unions and especially the local teachers union. The robo-call from Randy Reed, a Castle Rock resident and former Mayor was a nice hometown touch. (Yes, he is the registered name on the Colorado Secretary of State paperwork…you can look that up.)
But wait…it’s coming from a paid political consulting group from Arizona, headed up by someone friendly with those pesky Koch brothers.
The domain “StudentsNotUnions.com” is registered to:
2198 E camelback Rd suite 325
Phoenix, Arizona 85016
DC London…sounds so mysterious and international, but lo-and-behold, it’s in Arizona, and just one Google search away:
And, just a couple more clicks away, we learn about the owner of DC-London, Sean Noble:
- Arizona Republic article: Arizona Group Release Donor Names
- $55million Koch Fronts
- Sean Noble and Campaign Money Laundering By the Kochtopus
(feel free to do your own Google Search…there is more out there!)
Also, while you are investigating, try to figure out why this guy “likes” our school district?
Now…time to figure out who is funding this group. Any guesses?
