“It’s a historic day for Maryland, our students, and our schools,” said MSEA President Cheryl Bost. “We’re thrilled that Wes Moore, Aruna Miller, Brooke Lierman, and Anthony Brown are projected to win their races and lead the fight to ensure that no one is left behind and everyone has an equal shot at success. By soundly defeating candidates who would have focused on politicizing our schools and attacking the work of dedicated educators, this is a huge victory for our efforts to ensure that every student in every neighborhood has the resources and opportunities to pursue their dreams.”
MSEA made key early endorsements of Moore, Miller, Lierman, and Brown on April 2 at the union’s Spring Representative Assembly, which brought together hundreds of educators from across the state who were elected by their colleagues to vote on the endorsements. MSEA backed those endorsements with volunteers across the state knocking on doors, making calls, and handing out nearly 400,000 Apple Ballots at the polls, in addition to supporting significant independent expenditures on behalf of all these candidates.
