The Education Association of Norfolk (EAN), an affiliate of the Virginia Education Association, has endorsed state Senator Kenneth Cooper Alexander for Mayor of Norfolk in the election on May 3, 2016.
The endorsement follows an invitation from the EAN Political Action Committee for Education (PACE) for all candidates to discuss priorities for public education in Norfolk.
“I am honored to have the support from the Education Association of Norfolk (EAN),” says Kenny Alexander. “As mayor, I look forward to partnering with EAN as we seek better options for our students to succeed. If we fail to give Norfolk children the preparation they need to be competitive, then we are failing our own community and risking our city’s ability to compete in the global economy.”
