Andy Levin Earns ‘Highly Qualified’ Rating from MEA in 9th Congressional District Race
The Michigan Education Association has given Andy Levin a “Highly Qualified” rating in his run for the 9th Congressional District seat.
The rating communicates to its members that MEA leaders believe Levin will be a strong fighter for public education in Congress.
“Every child deserves a high-quality education that provides them with the resources, instruction and support necessary to help them reach their full potential,” Levin said. “When I get to Congress, I will advocate for universal public education, starting with preschool and including excellent K-12 schools under local control with well-compensated and well-respected teachers. We must invest in our kids to build a strong future for Michigan.”
Since announcing his campaign in December, Levin has also earned the support of many former and presently elected officials, including: Congressman Dan Kildee, Former Congressmen David Bonior and Mark Schauer, Former Governor Jennifer Granholm, retired Macomb County Clerk Carmella Sabaugh, Oakland County Water Resource Commissioner Jim Nash, Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith and Sheriff Anthony Wickersham, and many city, township, and school board officials.
Levin has also been endorsed by a dozen regional and national unions representing millions of American workers including the Communications Workers of America, International Association of Machinists, International Union of Operating Engineers, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, National Nurses United, National Weather Service Employees Organization, Service Employees International Union, SMART, United Auto Workers, UNITE HERE, United Food & Commercial Workers Local 951, and Utility Workers Union of America.
