John Broderick and Jean O'Connell for Board of Education

November is fast approaching and with it elections for the Board of Education at SPPS.  AFSCME Council 5 has decided to endorse John Broderick and Jean O'Connell for the Board of Education.  We also were able to hand out checks pictured above for $500 per candidate from AFSCME's PEOPLE committee.  John is a retired teacher from St. Paul Public Schools and a long time friend to labor.  His campaign site can be found at http://brodrick4kids.com  Jean has led the successful campaign for the technology referendum last year and is a great advocate for our schools.  Her campaign site is at http://oconnellforstpaulkids.com  There is still one more seat available and therefore one more that we could make one more endorsement.  At the present time there are four new candidates running.  If you are able please attend the June 8th Saint Paul City DFL Convention to support our candidates.  Find out more info here http://stpauldfl.wordpress.com
