Election 2012 Results
A Win for Public Education!
From the White House to the State House, the 2012 General Election was a big win for students, educators and our public schools. Here's a quick run-down:
It's a new day in the Oregon Legislature: We now have a solid, pro-public education majority in the House of Representatives - including OEA Member Chris Gorsek! This is huge.
Oregon voters spoke loud and clear about their support for investing in our schools by passing Measure 85 - directing the corporate kicker into our classrooms - and defeating Measure 84 - rejecting another costly tax break for millionaires!
All of the top tier OEA-PIE recommended statewide candidates secured victory. This means we'll have public education champions as our Secretary of State, Labor Commissioner, Treasurer and serving on the Oregon Supreme Court.
President Barack Obama, the NEA-Fund recommended candidate, was reelected to serve a second term.
