Annapolis, MD – Today, the Maryland State Education Association (MSEA)—the 74,000-member state affiliate of the National Education Association (NEA)—announced the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education’s endorsement of David Trone for Congress in Maryland’s Sixth District. MSEA made the announcement at an event in Frederick where Trone and MSEA members discussed how they could work together to support our kids and improve public education.
“Maryland educators are proud to endorse David Trone for Congress. David has a long history of backing public education and educators to make sure that every child has a chance at success. His support for universal pre-k, increasing funding for disadvantaged schools, and backing increased salaries and professional development programs for teachers shows he values the work our educators do to help students. MSEA is proud to support a candidate that stands up for our children and our values,” said MSEA President Cheryl Bost.
“Education has played a crucial role in my life, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of so many great educators who invested their time and energy in me. And I’ve always worked to pay it forward by supporting organizations that provide opportunities for kids from low-income families and coaching youth sports for 16 years. That’s why I couldn’t be prouder to have MSEA’s endorsement. It’s crucial that we come together to hold President Trump and Betsy DeVos accountable for their assault on public schools and ensure that every child can get a great education,” said David Trone.
The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education, the NEA’s national political action committee, supports candidates for president, U.S. House, and U.S. Senate who will fight to support teachers, school staff, and students and improve public education. MSEA members are a well-known presence on Election Day, as thousands mobilize to promote endorsed candidates at polling places across Maryland with the Apple Ballot.
