    Call your member of Congress now & tell them you support the HEROES Act!

    Some school districts in Ohio are losing more than 10% of their state funding due to unfunded private school voucher deductions. For those districts, this budget shortfall means larger classes, older textbooks and technology, and fewer school counselors and nurses. Tell your legislators to protect public education in Ohio by capping the amount that school districts can lose to vouchers.

    Under a new proposal, Trump’s Department of Agriculture would restrict a bipartisan provision called “broad-based categorical eligibility,” which gave states flexibility to ensure SNAP better serves their residents. This change would potentially end SNAP benefits for more than 3 million Americans—in particular, children, seniors and people with disabilities. We cannot let this happen.

    Endorsement Questionnaire
    Dec 18, 2019

    Races CTU endorses

    • Cleveland City Council
    • Cleveland Mayor
    • Cuyahoga County Council

    *Endorsements for statewide candidates, congressional candidates, and state representatives/senators are done through our parent union, the Ohio Federation of Teachers.

    *CTU does not endorse in judicial races. All endorsements for judicial candidates are completed through Northshore AFL-CIO, of which CTU is a member.

    Endorsement process

    All candidates seeking CTU endorsement (including incumbents with past endorsement) must fill out a CTU Endorsement Questionnaire. The questionnaire is reviewed by the CTU COPE steering committee. If clarity is needed, we will give candidates a call to explain any answers. Candidates will receive a letter to let them know of endorsement decision.

    2020 Candidate Questionnaires

    At this time, we do not have any candidate questionnaires available. Please check back for them to be posted, or contact COPE Director, Kurt Richards at: krichards@ctu279.org or 216-861-7676 x. 222.
