Teachers union endorses Moe
MINNEAPOLIS -- Education Minnesota, the state teachers union that represents nearly 70,000 people in the education field, endorsed Roger Moe on Saturday for governor.
Union president Judy Schaubach said Moe -- a Democrat and former teacher in Ada -- is a champion for education.
"Lots of politicians say they support public schools, but no one has walked the talk for Minnesota's kids more consistently than Roger Moe," she said.
Before being elected to the Legislature more than 30 years ago, Moe taught math and coached wrestling, football and track at Ada High School.
Members of Education Minnesota's Political Action Committee Board voted unanimously Saturday to endorse Moe, who has said education will be the cornerstone of his campaign.
"He listens, he's respectful. He's not hostile. . . . He will actually work with you," Schaubach said. "He also has a vision of where to take the state; how to bring people together."
