Statewide Teachers Unions Support Manar For Senate


The state’s two major teachers unions are endorsing Democrat Andy Manar  in the 48th State Senate race, based in part on his support for maintaining teacher pensions and preserving education funding.

 

Manar appeared with union officials and a couple of his childhood teachers at a news conference in Springfield. He says that teachers deserve the pensions they were promised, and says the same holds true for other state workers. And Manar says it doesn’t require deep cuts in education funding to make that happen, despite warnings to the contrary by Governor Pat Quinn.

 

Manar is running against Decatur mayor Mike McElroy in the November election.
