school funding 420

From the Bay of Pigs to Columbine, the date conjures up disaster.
The number itself conjures up pipe dreams.

On April 20, the Ohio Education Association will hold an election with 1300 delegates in Columbus voting to approve a one-time $25 dollar increase in dues that would raise $2.5m for the GIRFOF ballot drive, representing 25-35% of the projected budget for the campaign.

Beyond any superstitions or symbolism of the vote's timing, the article leaves me a bit confused:

If there are 130,000 OEA members,
and they each contribute $25,
and 25 X 130000 = 3,250,000

isn't there $750,000 I'm missing?
