PAT has put out its Voter’s Guide for the November election. Recommendations come from the PAT PAC, and were made on the basis of the candidate’s record or position on educational issues, responses during the interviews, viability of campaign, PAT’s strategic organizational goals, and electability. In this election cycle, the PAT PAC board interviewed and deliberated over a period of 10 months, for over 44 hours in total, to make recommendations for candidates.
The OEA PIE Board recommends candidates in national and statewide races. Recommendations for Ballot Measures come from the PAT Legislative Committee, and are approved by the PAT Executive Board, or are endorsed by the OEA Board of Directors.
