NEA-New Hampshire, the state’s largest public sector union, announced their recommendation of Joe Pace in the race for Executive Council in District 3.
“Joe Pace understands the value of public education in New Hampshire,” said NEA-NH President Megan Tuttle. “He attended public schools in Stratham and Exeter, and graduated from UNH. He knows firsthand how important our public schools are as pathways to prosperity for all of our families. He advocated for UNH as a student leader, and has continued to be a strong voice for public education as an active alumnus and a local elected official. Our educators know he will be there for us on the Executive Council.”
“I’m honored and humbled by the support of our state’s educators,” Pace said. “As a grateful graduate of public schools and as a proud alumnus of our great public university, I have always been an unapologetic advocate for public education. It’s the most potent tool we have in expanding opportunity for all of our children. As an Executive Councilor, I will take every opportunity to vote for expanded access to education and training at all levels, and for agency leadership with the experience and credentials to fight for all of our students.”
A recommendation is the fullest and most complete level of support NEA-NH can give a candidate.
