NJEA-endorsed candidates sweep primary election


In a victory for students and public education, the ten members of the NJEA approved congressional candidates won their primary elections yesterday. They will now qualify for the November 8 general election.

NJEA leaders, President Sean M. Spiller, Vice President Steve Beatty, and Secretary-Treasurer Petal Robertson, released this statement:

“Every vote and every election counts, and we are proud of the NJEA members who voted yesterday to support the pro-public education candidates for Congress. This November promises to be a hard-fought election and we look forward to helping elect these ten advocates. When our members choose to support a candidate, it involves much more than public endorsement. This comes with a commitment to work for their election.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher this fall. From funding schools to gun safety, to ensuring that public education remains truly public and genuinely open to all students and families, our elected representatives in Washington, D.C. will help determine the future of our profession and the opportunities for success of our students.

“We look forward to working with these public education advocates to ensure the voices of students, families, and educators are represented in Congress next year.”
