Our Legislative & Political Action Committee will take another look at our list of endorsements after the primary election to determine if there are any adjustments we want to consider. Meanwhile, the LPA Department staff is celebrating that we finally made it through our entire list. Many thanks to all the members who helped with the candidate interviews and who attended the Regional PEOPLE Conferences. We couldn't do it without you.
Here is the complete list of WFSE endorsements for 2008.
