You should be looking in your mailbox for an IEA mailing identifying candidates that your union has chosen to recommend in this election cycle. For each election cycle, all candidates are invited to local forums hosted by IEA locals where they are asked a series of questions related to issues impacting public education. If you look through the entire pamphlet you’ll notice that IEA recommended candidates are from both parties, and in some elections, no recommendation was made. A ‘no recommendation’ can be from a failure of candidates to participate in a forum, the inability of the forum to reach agreement, or simply none of the participating candidates stated positions aligned with our organizational needs and values.

Beyond representative elections, be sure to read up on the constitutional amendment that will be on this year’s ballot and the rationale to vote ‘NO’ on this ballot initiative.
