Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, the Clark County Education Association (CCEA) announced their endorsement of Aaron Ford in his campaign to become Nevada’s next attorney general.
“Clark County Education Association, a leading advocate for public education, is proud to endorse Aaron Ford in his race for Nevada attorney general,” said Vikki Courtney, Clark County Education Association President. “Aaron has been a stalwart champion for public education in Nevada and has worked closely with CCEA in the legislature to improve our public schools and create more opportunities for our students. We are confident he will fight to protect the hard working educators within our public education system as the next attorney general.”
“As a father and former public school teacher, I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Clark County Education Association, with whom I worked closely at the Nevada Legislature for the past two sessions, to improve our public education system,” said Aaron Ford. “Through our partnership, we fought to secure much-needed revenue, and to pass critical measures to improve our schools, including a weighted funding formula that will bring more resources to Clark County to help low proficient students with the greatest need. As Nevada attorney general, I will continue to work closely with CCEA to protect our hard working educators and expand opportunities for our students.”
The Clark County Education Association represents 18,000 educators in Nevada working to elevate the education profession and ensure a high-quality education for every student.
