AEA-PAC Endorses Angelo Cocchiaro for School Board
The Arlington Education Association Political Action Committee (AEA-PAC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Angelo Cocchiaro for School Board in the Democratic Party Caucus.
AEA-PAC believes that Angelo's youthful vision and strong commitment to students, educators and the labor movement will make him a fresh voice for APS. He impressed the interview committee with his student activism in support of educators in West Virginia.
His support of labor rights and collective bargaining will serve our students, community, and staff well by giving those on the front-lines of providing educational service to our community a real voice in planning to make it the best it can be.
Voting will take place Sunday, May 7th from 10 am to 6 pm at Drew Elementary School, Wednesday, May 10th from 7 to 9 pm at Campbell Elementary School, and Saturday, May 13th from 10 am to 6 pm at Washington-Liberty High School.

AEA-PAC Endorses Julius D. "JD" Spain and Maureen Coffey for County Board
The Arlington Education Association Political Action Committee (AEA-PAC) is pleased to announce its endorsements of Julius D. "JD" Spain and Maureen Coffey for Arlington County Board.
In his more than decade-long activism and leadership in the Arlington community, JD has been a tireless advocate for the underrepresented and the underserved, both in our schools and in our community. He understands the needs and aspirations of educators in Arlington, and would be a strong voice on the County Board for educators, students, and working people in our county.
Maureen knows first hand from the educators in her family about the challenges faced by public school educators, and she is a proud and active supporter of our right to organize. The breadth and depth of her knowledge from her early childhood policy background and her commitment to improving educational opportunities for all of Arlington's young people would make her a strong educational ally on the County Board.
Arlington will be well served by getting these two strong candidates elected.
AEA-PAC Endorses Parisa Dehghani-Tafti for Commonwealth Attorney
The Arlington Education Association Political Action Committee (AEA-PAC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Parisa Dehghani-Tafi for Commonwealth's Attorney. Parisa is a national leader in the movement for restorative justice, and the interview committee believes her deep commitment to an approach to justice that seeks to heal rather than punish, to combat racism and oppression and replace it with it with humanization is in alignment with our goals and values as educators and in the best interest of our students, our educators, and the community we serve.
