PSE Candidate Endorsements

This is a critical time for education in Washington. PSE’s Legislative Council and Board of Directors have endorsed outstanding leaders across the state and believe the candidates below are the right choices in this historic election.

How are endorsements made?

The PSE Legislative Council, which is comprised of elected members from each zone across the state, makes endorsement recommendations to the PSE Board of Directors. The board then makes final approval on the recommendations. If you have questions about endorsements, log in to the PSE Portal and contact your Legislative Council Representative.

Thank you to all the Legislative Council members for your work in supporting pro-union and pro-public education candidates!
