MASSACHUSETTS TEACHERS CHOOSE CONGRESSMAN RICHARD E. NEAL
American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts and Massachusetts Teachers Association Endorse Neal for Re-Election

“I am honored to once again receive the endorsement from the Massachusetts Teachers Association and the American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts. As a long time teacher and member of the MTA, I know firsthand the joys and challenges that come with the classroom. We all know children are our future and we can thank teachers for instilling academics and life lessons in our next generation of leaders.”

(SPRINGFIELD) The two teacher unions serving Massachusetts- American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts and Massachusetts Teachers Association- both endorsed Congressman Richard E. Neal for re-election.

“I am honored to once again receive the endorsement from the American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Teachers Association,” said Neal. “As a long time teacher and member of the MTA, I know firsthand the joys and challenges that come with the classroom. We all know children are our future and we can thank teachers for instilling academics and life lessons in our next generation of leaders.”

“We are recommending Congressman Neal because of his deep and lasting commitment to students and public education,” said Paul Toner, President of the Massachusetts Teachers Association. “Because of his background as a teacher, he understands the issues that educators face each day. Congressman Neal can be counted on to do what is best for our students and for our public schools, colleges and universities.”

“Congressman Neal is a strong supporter of quality education for all public school students,” said Tom Gosnold, President of AFT Massachusetts.
