As a union we work with many educationally minded local candidates in the Salt Lake City area. We go through a thorough vetting and interview process to find candidates who truly support educators and students. Here are some of the Local Candidates who are SLEA Endorsed.
Salt Lake Education Association endorses Mayor Mendenhall for re-election. Erin fought with us and our students during the pandemic, supports city librarians in their organizing efforts, and has prioritized education in the mayor's office. We appreciate her monthly visits to our classrooms, and as a parent of children in Salt Lake City schools, expect her to continue advocating for our students. We look forward to working with the mayor’s office to advance public education and support working families in the Capital City!
Founded as the nation’s first educator political action committee in 1964, the Utah Education Association Political Action Committee (UEA-PAC) is the political arm of the UEA. Since absolutely no UEA member dues are used for political parties or candidates, UEA-PAC allows educators to have a voice in political issues affecting children and public education. UEA-PAC is directed and run by classroom teacher members from throughout the state. Chaired by the UEA President, the UEA-PAC Executive Council (login required) has bi-partisan representatives from each local UniServ and the UEA Board of Directors.UEANEA
