PORTLAND, OR—AFT-Oregon today announced that they have endorsed Governor Kate Brown in the 2016 gubernatorial race.
"In the governor's race, we're with Kate," said David Rives, President of AFT-Oregon. "She's proven she can move our state forward through increased and stabilized support and funding for our schools, while others in Salem continue to push ideas that would hurt everyday Oregonians. And she stands strong for Oregon's most vulnerable citizens, including immigrants and low-wage earners."
Governor Kate Brown was a keynote speaker at AFT-Oregon's annual convention, April 8-10, 2016, where she shared her vision of "cradle to career" education funding and received a standing ovation from nearly 150 AFT-Oregon delegates representing 21 locals from across the state.
