HOW THE MTA RECOMMENDS CANDIDATES
Candidates in statewide races are interviewed by the MTA’s member-elected Candidate Recommendation Committee. The CRC’s
recommendations are reviewed by MTA’s Board of Directors for final approval.
Evaluations of incumbent legislators in contested races are based on support for the MTA’s legislative agenda, voting records and
access to MTA lobbyists and activists. Candidates running in open-seat legislative races fill out questionnaires developed by the CRC
and are interviewed by CRC members, MTA local presidents, MTA Board and Executive Committee members and Senate district
The recommendations in this Primary Election Guide are the result of that process. We hope you will take the guide with you to the
polls on September 9 and help elect MTA-recommended candidates. These candidates will listen to educators and act in the best
interests of students and public education.
The MTA also urges you to join our Legislative and Political Action Teams and participate in campaigns.
An Election Guide in the fall edition of MTA Today will make recommendations for the General Election on November 4.
