The Executive Board of the United Educators of San Francisco has endorsed John Avalos, Dennis Herrera, and Leland Yee for Mayor of San Francisco. According to UESF members, these three candidates are strong supporters of students, their families, and public school educators. The endorsements were made in no ranked choice order.
All three candidates have pledged to do everything in their power to restore funding to our schools, and as mayor would work closely with the district and all education stakeholders to ensure that our city’s children have a clear pathway to college or good paying careers. Avalos, Herrera, and Yee have also come out strongly against Proposition H, the November ballot initiative that seeks to take away parent choice in the SFUSD’s school assignment system.
“Schools and education have several friends running in this election,” says UESF President Dennis Kelly. “Avalos, Herrera, and Yee are the members’ choice of the strongest voices for our kids, our schools, and for the people who do the work. We are looking forward to a strong pro-education mayor in the tradition of former mayor Gavin Newsom.”
The United Educators of San Francisco represents more than 6,000 San Francisco Unified School District employees including teachers, counselors, security aides, psychologists, community relations specialists, instructional aides, nurses, and speech pathologists and therapists.
