Mero and Byrne Focus on…

On Wednesday, October 3, 2007, Sutherland Institute President Paul T. Mero and Patrick M. Byrne, chairman of the board and CEO of Overstock.com, participated in a vouchers debate in front of an audience of about 100 people at UVSC.  Mero said, “HB 148 [the school vouchers bill] is about giving hope to the hopeless…HB 148 is their emancipation proclamation.”  Mero and Byrne debated Kim Burningham, chair of the Utah State Board of Education, and Marilyn Kofford, from Utahns for Public Schools.
