Campaign Announcements Teachers & Service Personnel Endorse Jim Watkins

Teachers & Service Personnel Endorse Jim Watkins

I am honored to be endorsed by Jefferson County teachers and service personnel. That the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA) and the West Virginia School Service Personnel Association (WVSSPA) would support my campaign of a future focus for better schools and better opportunities for students means a great deal to me.

To be endorsed by those who Fortune magazine included in its list of “50 Greatest World Leaders” is truly an honor. But, more importantly, it is an honor to receive an endorsement from teachers and service personnel who the Jefferson County community rallied behind in the fight for fair pay and health care. The Jefferson County community recognizes that these folks love our children and love their jobs.

On May 8th, the Jefferson County community has another opportunity to stand with teachers and service personnel by supporting my campaign for better schools and better opportunities for students. I have pledged to move from a human resources management model to an employee services model that values, respects, empowers, and engages JCS employees in support of excellence in teaching and learning.

I sincerely appreciate their support, and ask for yours.
