2017 Election Update

Pro-public education candidates successful on Election Day

PSEA members proudly supported pro-public education candidates up and down the ballot during the Nov. 7 election.

90 percent of the successful candidates for state appeals court elections and retentions were recommended by PSEA-PACE.

Overall, 76 percent of the PSEA-PACE recommended candidates from both parties were successful in their races for county and state courts, county and municipal offices, and school boards.

PSEA President Dolores McCracken said the bipartisan results from the 2017 election reflect how PSEA approaches every election.

“Party doesn't matter,” McCracken said. “What matters is whether a candidate is pro-public education.”

A year from now, Pennsylvanians will head to the polls again to vote for a governor who will shape what public education looks like in Pennsylvania well into the next decade.

Stay tuned for updates in the coming months.
