Teachers and Education Leaders Support Eleanor Chavez
Eleanor Chavez candidate for NM Senate District 14 has officially been endorsed by:
- Albuquerque Teachers Federation Local 1420
- National Education Association-NM
- Albuquerque Educational Assistants Association Local 4129
- Albuquerque Secretarial and Clerical Association Local 4127
“I am extremely grateful to have the support of teachers, school counselors, psychologists, social workers, librarians, nurses, secretaries, clerical employees and educational assistants. I appreciate and value their dedication to the success of our children. I will always be committed to supporting our team of teachers and all education employees who work hard everyday to provide students with the quality education they deserve,” said Eleanor.
Eleanor understands that New Mexico faces many unique challenges. As a member of the Legislative Education Study Committee, Eleanor actively supported a constitutional amendment to fund early childhood education and signed on as a cosponsor of Rep. Miera’s HJR15. She believes that we can improve educational outcomes in our state by investing in the early years of a child’s learning, reducing class sizes and supporting our teachers.
“I believe that providing access to a quality education is the key to improving our economy and the lives of all New Mexicans,” said Eleanor Chavez.
