Anne Holton, former Virginia Secretary of Education and wife of Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine, made a campaign stop in East Lansing on Wednesday, September 28. After purchasing a coffee at the Red Cedar Cafe, Holton sat down with six moms to listen to their concerns.

Points of concern that the moms shared with Holton during the thirty minute round table included gun violence, women’s rights issues such as maternity leave and equal pay, and student debt. Many of these are topics which were also addressed during Chelsea Clinton’s visit to East Lansing the week prior.

“She’s a warm, genuine, authentic woman who understands all of the issues important to families,” said Emily Durbin, one of the round table participants.

Once the round table concluded, Holton agreed to do interviews with several of the journalists who were covering the event.

“I was Secretary of Education in Virginia and I’m a product of public education in Virginia, and my children are products of public education, and I care very passionately about it. Hillary’s got great policies for restoring teaching, learning, and community,” Holton said during an interview with The Blazer following the round table. “I really think that probably the most important part of her policy is that we need to focus on elevating and modernizing the teaching profession. Our teachers have been asked to do more and more with less and less for a long, long time and we need to change that.”
