RICHMOND, VA — The Virginia Education Association (VEA), which represents more than 40,000 active and retired public school teachers in the Commonwealth, today enthusiastically endorsed Abigail Spanberger’s candidacy for the U.S House of Representatives in Virginia’s 7th District. The endorsement was made through the VEA Fund for Children and Public Education, its political action committee, on behalf of the approximately 3,700 active and retired public school teachers and school staff who live or teach in the 7th district.
“Our members proudly support Abigail Spanberger because she is deeply committed to our public schools, the children who attend them, and the educators who serve them so capably,” said VEA President Jim Livingston. “She has clearly demonstrated to us her genuine interest in and ability to work with people of diverse views and backgrounds to find practical, common-sense solutions on important education issues facing the Commonwealth’s students.”
“I believe deeply in the transformative power of public education and I’m proud to have the support of the educators in the VEA who feel the same,” said Spanberger. “I will advocate for and work with the Virginia Education Association to strengthen our public education system and make sure that we are making smart, strategic investments that will pave the way to successful outcomes for generations to come.”
