Representing more than 80% of Summit County’s teachers, the Summit County Education Association has endorsed Chris Guarino, Kate Hudnut, Johanna Kugler, and Lisa Webster. They’re urging a vote for all four.

So why are we backing these long-time locals? Because their positions are focused on our educators, our community, our students, and their parents. In short—all of us.

And, unlike the slate claiming to be “for the kids”, they’re not raising tens of thousands of dollars, including from agenda-driven far-right groups.

UPDATE: While it’s too late to mail your ballot, you can drop it off at any 24/7 ballot drop box in the County. Click here for info, locations, and options.

You can still register to vote!
