Members’ Section

Each election cycle the Government Relations Council meet to determine which candidates to recommend.

The determination is made on the basis of questionnaires completed by the candidates and interviews with the candidates. Remember, this recommendation is made solely on the basis of the candidates’ positions on public education and issues relevant to education employees. The GRC does not take issues into account which do not relate in some way to public education.

If you would like to the join FEA’s GRC, please email Andrea Mayer mayermayhem@gmail.com and she will let you know about any upcoming meetings and events.

You can find VEA endorsements for state-level races here.
