Information about the 2024 Recomendation Convention for Governor
The Washington Education Association Political Action Committee (WEA-PAC) invited 2024 candidates for Governor to participate in our endorsement process, which consisted of:
- Submitting a completed candidate questionnaire,
- Attending our candidate recommendation convention on Nov. 10, 2023, in Federal Way.
Candidates who had raised $150,000 or more by Sept. 11, 2023, were invited to participate. They were: Bob Ferguson, Hilary Franz, Mark Mullet, Dave Reichert and Semi Bird. Of these five candidates, only two responded by the deadline.
Each UniServ Council and represented unit (ESP/ACT, higher ed, retirees, staff) were allocated three voting representatives, typically their WEA-PAC Board Manager, WEA Council President and one additional person as was chosen by each delegation (Council/ represented unit). Everyone in attendance was required to be a WEA-PAC member.
We also asked WEA members to submit questions ahead of time. These are the questions WEA President Larry Delaney asked during the convention. Stay posted for video footage of your questions being asked and answered on stage!
