The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) recommends Brittany Keyes in Assembly District 31.
“Brittany Keyes believes all children should have the same opportunity for success, no matter where they live or what their family circumstances,” said Ron Martin, an Eau Claire eighth grade teacher and WEAC president. “Wisconsin needs elected officials who respect educators’ voices.”
“Public schools are important to our communities. Decisions in the State Assembly should be based on what’s best for students,” Martin said. “Elected officials, educators and our entire communities should be working together to support local public schools.”
“Teachers work hard every day to give our children the best chance to succeed. I’m proud to have the support of our teachers and other education professionals,” said Keyes. “Too many communities, including Darien in the 31st District, have seen schools close because our state hasn’t kept up its commitment to education. In the Assembly, I will fight for fair funding for our schools and I will respect our educators and work to make sure they have the resources they need in the classroom.”
In making recommendations for the state Legislature, WEAC members focus on areas including support for public schools, giving employees a voice in school decisions and professional respect for the role educators have in keeping our communities strong.
