WEA-PAC endorses these pro-labor, pro-public education candidates

WEA-PAC's elected board recommends and helps to elect pro-public education, pro-labor candidates to office. WEA-PAC makes non-partisan recommendations in races for statewide, legislative and local offices. Candidates seeking our endorsement must complete a written questionnaire and participate in an interview with WEA-PAC members who then make a recommendation for the candidates who will stand up for us and our students.
