This is from the Newton Teachers Association.

The Newton Teachers Association is pleased to announce its endorsement of candidates for office in Newton’s November 3rd election.

The candidates we are endorsing each answered a questionnaire that the Newton Teachers association made available to all candidates for contested offices. Questions were intended to gauge expertise and experience, commitment to public education, and support for collective bargaining. Candidates’ responses were shared with members of our Executive Board and Representative Assembly. The latter, the NTA governing body, voted unanimously on Tuesday, October 21, to endorse the following candidates:
