The Racine Education Association, which represents more than 1,600 educators, has endorsed Rep. Bob Turner's mayoral candidacy.
An REA statement said it based its support on Turner's "outstanding voting record in support of public schools over the years. Bob will play a crucial role in revitalizing city leadership, supporting sensible economic development, and helping students and their families prosper.”
“Quality, affordable education is a cornerstone of healthy communities, and I look forward to continuing our work to build a stronger Racine,” Turner said.
The May 5 election ballot pits Turner, D-Racine, 61st District, against John Dickert and write-in candidate Jody Harding.
