Teachers union backs Giunchigliani’s bid for Nevada governor
The state teachers union has endorsed Chris Giunchigliani’s bid to be Nevada’s next governor, again putting the organization at odds with the local chapter, who endorsed fellow Democrat Steve Sisolak two weeks ago.
Members of the Nevada State Education Association unanimously endorsed Giunchigliani, the organization announced Monday. She is a Clark County commissioner, a former state legislator, a former special education teacher and a previous president of both the local and state teacher’s unions.
“There has never been a candidate for Governor with a such a lifetime commitment to public schools and a quality public education for every Nevada student,” NSEA President Ruben Murillo said in a statement. “NSEA is 100 percent committed in making sure Chris Giunchigliani becomes our education governor.”
