Virginia Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education
Recommends 33 Legislators during Annual VEA Convention

The Virginia Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education has rolled out the first of a series of recommendations of Virginia General Assembly incumbent legislators. The 33 legislators recommended this Friday distinguished themselves by voting for legislation considered vital and important by the members of the Virginia Education Association over the past two General Assembly sessions.

The members of VEA Fund for Children and Public Education recommended these candidates for re-election due to their solid commitment to increased investments in public education.

“It is important that we protect and defend the elected officials who have demonstrated their commitment to investing in public education,” said Jim Livingston, President of the Virginia Education Association. “VEA members will help re-elect these deserving candidates and will also be working hard to add more pro-public education Delegates and Senators to their ranks this fall as we continue the fight to Fund Our Future in Virginia.”
