WE Endorsements for 2018 May Primaries

The Caucus of Working Educators is pleased to endorse the following candidates for election on May 15th:

JOHN FETTERMAN (Lt. Governor)

KEVIN JOHNSON (3rd Congressional District)

RICH LAZER (5th Congressional District)

MIKE O’BRIEN (175th Pennsylvania House District)

ALEX DEERING (181st Pennsylvania House District)

ELIZABETH FIEDLER (184th Pennsylvania House District)

JAMES ROEBUCK (188th Pennsylvania House District)

These candidates have shown that they are not only staunch public school advocates, but are also committed to the labor movement, full funding for our schools, and societal reforms that promote social and racial justice.

WE’s Political Committee held two open Meet-the-Candidates events where all PFT members and our allies were able to conduct interviews with potential endorsees. Candidates also submitted detailed questionnaires, which can be viewed by clicking here or the links above. Finally, the Political Committee made suggestions to the WE Caucus’ Steering Committee, who voted on those final endorsement recommendations.

The Caucus of Working Educators encourages our members and allies to help elect these candidates into office. We look forward to working with them in order to ensure our shared goals are well represented both in Washington and Harrisburg.

We need as many of our allies to help volunteer get these candidates elected through phone banking, canvassing, etc. Please reach out the current WE Political Secretary, George Bezanis, at gbezanis@gmail.com to find out how!
