The Flag/Fargo's Bruce Kelly Campaigns For Anti-Bullying Law
October 21, 2010 at 4:42 AM (PT)
GREAT PLAINS INTEGRATED MARKETING Talk WZFG-A (AM 1100 THE FLAG)/FARGO morning host BRUCE KELLY has launched a "NORTH DAKOTA Bully Busters" campaign to get NORTH DAKOTA's legislature to pass its first anti-bullying law. The state is one of only four in the nation without such a law on the books.
Governor JOHN HOEVEN, State Rep. ED GRUCHALLA, FARGO Schools Superintendent Dr. RICK BURESH, and hundreds of parents and students across the state have called in to KELLY's show supporting the cause. On the air, KELLY, who is promoting the campaign with the motto "It ends today," has shared his own physical and sexual abuse experience in the 1960s, along with his 11-year-old son RYAN's repeated physical bullying in NORTH DAKOTA schools.
KELLY plans a concert rally and multi-station remote to gather support for the cause. "We need not only the support of NORTH DAKOTA residents, but Bully Busters across the USA to help make our case to the State lawmakers and enact this law containing penalties and consequences for not only the bullies, but for parents who continue to allow this violence to continue in our schools", KELLY said.
