- "As the future U.S. Senator for Nevada, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen will continue her unwavering commitment in supporting and defending public education,” said Clark County special education teacher and NSEA President Ruben Murillo, Jr.
(Las Vegas, NV)— The Nevada State Education Association (NSEA) announced their endorsement today of Nevada Congresswoman Jacky Rosen in her campaign for U.S. Senate. NSEA represents more than 40,000 thousand teachers and education support professionals across the state working to ensure a high-quality public education for every Nevada student.
“As the future U.S. Senator for Nevada, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen will continue her unwavering commitment in supporting and defending public education,” said Clark County special education teacher and NSEA President Ruben Murillo, Jr. “Congresswoman Rosen has been a reliable partner working toward the vision of a quality public education for all Nevada students regardless of zip code or income level. This is the type of representation we need, a U.S. Senator who wants what is best for students, families, and educators in Nevada.”
“I’m honored to earn NSEA’s endorsement and the support of thousands of educators across Nevada,” said Rosen. “I understand the critical role public education plays in shaping our economic future because I was the first in my family to graduate from college, and my daughter is a proud product of Nevada’s public schools. A good job comes from a good education, and I will always fight to ensure our teachers and our kids have the tools and resources to succeed.”
In Congress, Rosen has been a vocal advocate for improving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and encouraging young girls to get interested in and explore careers in STEM fields. Last year, Republican Sen. Dean Heller cast the deciding vote in the Senate to confirm unqualified billionaire and school voucher proponent Betsy DeVos as President Trump’s Education Secretary
