“I am running with MORE because I believe in unions and I want to continue to work to make my union stronger and more democratic. I am inspired by the potential for vast improvements in education by the vision of educators, school staff, parents, and students collectively organizing and working together. I believe all education stakeholders deserve a voice in the decisions that affect our schools. It’s time to build a MORE perfect union.”
