CONCORD – NEA-New Hampshire, the state’s largest public sector union, announced their recommendation of Jay Kahn for Senate District 10 today.
“I am honored to earn the recommendation of NEA-NH for the state senate seat in District 10. Over my 43 years in higher education, I have dedicated myself to working with faculty and staff to transform the lives of students. Now I pledge to stand together with NEA and businesses across the state to fortify the pipeline of qualified students into our NH workforce, said Kahn. “Retaining high school and college graduates in the state is crucial to our workforce and economic goals. This includes retaining and attracting teachers and support staff, and giving them the support needed to inspire students and develop creative approaches to teaching and learning.”
“We know Jay is looking out for students and families from his focus on creating more paid internships to encourage students to stay in NH, and a public higher education tuition freeze for two years, so prospective students can better budget,” said Scott McGilvray, NEA-NH President.
A recommendation is the fullest and most complete level of support NEA-NH can give a candidate.
