HOW THE MTA
MTA’s member-elected Candidate
establishes policies and procedures
for recommendations in elections,
which are reviewed by the MTA 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 for open seats
— and in some legislative races with
contested incumbents — fill out
questionnaires developed by the
CRC and are interviewed by CRC
members, MTA local presidents,
members of the MTA Board and
Executive Committee, and Senate
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 Sept.
8 and help elect MTA-recommended
candidates. These candidates will
listen to educators and act in the
best interests of students and public
The MTA also urges you to join our
Legislative and Political Action Teams
and participate in campaigns.
A guide in the Fall edition of MTA
Today will make recommendations
for the General Election on Nov. 8.
All MTA-recommended candidates in this Election Guide
have pledged to oppose Question 2
