MTEA President Endorses Chevy Johnson for Alderman
Chevy has shown that he supports public education -- our students, our families, and our educators," said Kim Schroeder, President of the Milwaukee Teachers' Education Association.
MILWAUKEE- Chevy Johnson, candidate for Alderman of the City of Milwaukee’s Second District, is proud to announce another endorsement from an ally in the labor community — Kim Schroeder, President of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA).
“I endorse Chevy Johnson in his race for Aldermanic District 2. Chevy has shown that he supports public education — our students, our families, and our educators,” noted Schroeder. “I proudly stand by Chevy and look forward to being at his side as we fight to improve Milwaukee Public Schools and the Milwaukee community as a whole. We need more people like Chevy, who sees his seat as a way to serve the people of Milwaukee and improve their lives.”
“As a former student and proud alum of MPS, I fully support public school teachers, assistants, administrative staff, and the 78,000 students and families that they serve each day. While the State of Wisconsin has chosen policies which demonize these hardworking people, I believe the best path forward includes having a seat at the table for organizations such as MTEA. I will look to Kim and the MTEA for ideas related to education in Milwaukee and I am honored to have their support in my race for Alderman,” noted Johnson.
Chevy Johnson recently served as Staff Assistant to the Mayor of Milwaukee and emerged from a five person Primary Election contest as the top vote getter earning 38% of the vote. A long time resident of the 2nd district, Chevy is committed to bringing responsible, accountable, and dependable leadership to the Milwaukee Common Council. The General Election is April 5th, 2016.
