Stuart understands importance of unions

The Vermont-NEA Fund for Children and Public Education supports the candidacy of Representative Valerie Stuart. She is the only candidate running in the Windham-2-1 primary to receive the recommendation of the Vermont-NEA Board of Directors. We have 79 members who live in Brattleboro’s District 1.

The 2018 election is very important to the future of public education in Vermont and to our members. As the president of the state’s largest labor union, I can say we look forward to working with Valerie to protect our public schools, fight to provide health care for everyone, and help all children and families succeed.

Given Valerie’s strong record, we know she understands the importance of unions for all working Vermonters.
