Education Voters PA Announces first Round of Legislative Endorsements

Education Voters of Pennsylvania, an independent public interest organization that endorses candidates based on support for public education, today released its first endorsements in state legislative races.

“We have seen many positive developments in educational funding over the past few years,” said Susan Gobreski, the Executive Director of EVPA.  “As a result, Pennsylvania achievement has been steadily rising, with more students achieving proficiency in core subjects.    Pennsylvania’s reformed funding formula and efforts to target resources in order to provide sufficient program support provide for all Pennsylvania’s school districts are important steps in the right direction.”

 “Because of these successes, we want to honor those legislators that have been champions for public education.  These incumbent members have worked diligently by serving on important committees, sponsoring or co-sponsoring initiatives or championing education issues in their own caucuses.”

 Education Voters PA endorses the following members for re-election to the PA House:

 –    Rep. Paul Drucker (D-157)

–    Rep. Todd Eachus (D-116)

–    Rep. Dwight Evans (D-203)

–    Rep. Nicholas Micozzie (R-163)

–    Rep. Duane Milne (R-167)

–    Rep. Thomas Murt (R-152)

–    Rep. Tony Payton (D-179)

–    Rep. James Roebuck (D-188)

–    Rep. Dante Santoni (D-126)

–    Rep. Michael Sturla (D-96)

“We are also looking for the next generation of leadership on education issues,” said Gobreski.  “We are pleased to endorse Justin Yaich for the open House seat in district 122, which was recently vacated by former House Speaker Keith McCall.  We are confident Mr. Yaich will continue to be a strong representative for his district and for the issues important to communities there. .  Justin Yaich has a remarkable understanding of how important strong public education is to our economy and to our local communities which will pay significant and lasting dividends for generations of Pennsylvanians.  We believe Mr. Yaich will be a tremendous voice for education in the next legislative session, and we enthusiastically support his candidacy.”

Education Voters of Pennsylvania is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organization.  EVPA will be making endorsements in key state House and Senate races over the next few weeks leading up to the November election.
