CONCORD, NH – September 18, 2020 – NEA-New Hampshire announced their recommendation of Cinde Warmington for District 2 Executive Council today.
“We’re confident Cinde’s experience uniquely prepares her to be a leader on the council in holding the governor and his education commissioner accountable during this critical time for educators during the pandemic,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “As Cinde says, we have seen for the last two years, that one vote is the difference between a Commissioner of Education who believes in public education, and one who seeks to undermine it every single day,” continued Tuttle.
All our students deserve access to a high-quality education. We know public education has the ability to open doors to academic excellence, to address the economic, racial and social inequities in our society and to empower young people to help change the world around them. We are looking forward to working with Cinde to help make defending public education a key issue of the 2020 campaign.
“We know Cinde is committed to protecting public education, our students, and educators. She understands that public schools are the heart of the communities they serve and do much more than just teach children. With Cinde on the Executive Council, we ensure that the ongoing mission of our public schools will continue,” said Tuttle.
“On the Executive Council, I will fight for the interests of our students and educators,” said Cinde Warmington. “I will press the Department of Education at public hearings regarding issues like school reopening and inequities in ability to participate in remote learning. Most importantly, I will only vote to confirm a nominee for Commissioner of Education who is committed to protecting and strengthening public education in New Hampshire.”
NEA-NH is among nine organized labor organizations that are supporting Cinde Warmington’s bid for Executive Council District 2.
Over the coming weeks, NEA-NH will be working with thousands of its members across Executive Council District 2 to help get the vote out for Cinde.
