COLUMBUS — February 3, 2014 — The Ohio Education Association (OEA) Fund for Children and Public Education (OEA-FCPE) announced its second round of endorsements for the November 2014 statewide elections. The OEA–FCPE has endorsed the following:
Connie Pillich for Ohio Treasurer
Nina Turner for Secretary of State
John Patrick Carney for State Auditor
David Pepper for Attorney General
“Ohioans will be well-served by these recommended candidates. They all have strong records of support for our public schools — from K-12 through higher education,” said OEA President Becky Higgins. “These candidates have a vision to ensure a better future for Ohio’s children and a firm commitment to public education.”
The OEA FCPE State Council, comprised of elected OEA members from throughout the state, carefully screens candidates based on their voting records, their stated support of public education and the OEA’s priority issues.
In November, OEA-FCPE endorsed Ed FitzGerald for Governor.
