"Remember in November" was the rallying cry this past winter during the historic 2018 Teacher Strike. Well...November's almost here. West Virginia's teachers and school service workers rallied this weekend around the state to remind politicians and voters to support the hard working West Virginians who make sure our children are ready for the future.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Satellite rallies across the state were part of the effort to rally ahead of the Nov. 6 election day for public educators and service personnel.
Heather Deluca-Nestor, President of the Monongalia County Education Association, joined her co-horts from Marion and Preston counties at a joint rally in Morgantown Sunday, announcing their intention to support candidates who specifically support public education.
“We want to flip some seats so we’re protected, so education is protected, so public employees in West Virginia are protected,” she said.
Satellite rallies, like the one in Morgantown, were part of a wider effort planned Sunday at the Capitol.
