2020 Primary Election Endorsements
HGEA has endorsed the following candidates for the 2020 Primary Election. For the past several weeks, HGEA Island Division and State Political Action Committees, made up of members from all eight bargaining units, the Retirees Unit, and the managerial/excluded MCEC Unit, met, interviewed candidates and deliberated on political endorsement recommendations over video teleconferencing.
Thank you to all members who took time to submit comments and interview questions to the PAC feedback page. All member feedback and confidential comments about candidates were strongly considered and many of your suggested interview questions were utilized. Your feedback was one component of the many factors the PACs took into consideration when deliberating on recommendations.
Please consider these candidates as you cast your ballot in the primary election on August 8. Additional endorsements will be coming after further PAC deliberations.
**An “open” endorsement means the union does not endorse a candidate.
