JEA/UEA/NEA Recommended Candidates

The Political Action Committee at all levels of the Association have made recommendations for the 2012 elections.  Please remember that all recommendations are made based on one issue:  public education.  You have the responsibility to learn about the candidates and the right to vote for the person you feel best represents you.  Remember to vote!  In the last general election, only 50% of UEA members voted.  With 18,000 members, we can cause candidates to win races if we all vote.
