NH’s Largest Public Employee Union Backs Clinton for President
CONCORD – Following Hillary Clinton’s remarks to the more than 7,500 delegates at the National Education Association’s 95th Representative Assembly, NEA-New Hampshire, the state’s largest public sector union, announced their recommendation of Hillary Clinton for President.
“We are proud to join with educators from across the Granite State in recommending Hillary Clinton to be our next President and continue to work in partnership with her to create stronger public schools and a brighter future for the next generation of students,” said Scott McGilvray, President of NEA-New Hampshire
“There is so much at stake this election for New Hampshire students and teachers. Donald Trump has continued to put forth reckless policies that would hurt so many students across our state, like eliminating the Department of Education–a move that would strip students with special needs of resources and protection, deprive schools in rural New Hampshire of funds, and eliminate the federal Pell Grant that makes college accessible for thousands of our graduates.”
“As President, Hillary will make sure that teachers are supported and heard at the highest levels of government. She has been a champion for our nation’s children her entire life and with her vision, we can ensure that every student in New Hampshire has the opportunity to succeed and every teacher has the tools he or she needs to make that success a reality.”
