Endorsements for May Election

The Portland Association of Teachers Political Action Committee (PAT PAC) and the Oregon Education Association Political Action Committee (OEA PAC) have endorsed the following candidates for the May 2018 primary election. The PAT PAC board considers candidates’ positions on public education, their commitment to union values, their alignment to PAT strategic goals including racial equity, and their electability. We look forward to working with these candidates to improve our schools, and move our state, city, and county to better support our students and families.
