Madison Teachers Endorse Paul Soglin for Mayor of Madison
Madison Teachers, Inc. (MTI) has endorsed Paul Soglin for Mayor, citing his long and dynamic record of thoughtful and progressive action on behalf of Madison residents.
“Paul Soglin has a deep and longstanding commitment to Madison public schools, the children who learn in those schools and the teachers who teach those children ,” said Mike Lipp, athletic director and science teacher at Madison West High School, and president of Madison Teachers Inc. “Paul’s understanding of the challenges our schools face and his fluency with how best to bring the City and the schools together distinguishes him on these issues. His involvement with the Madison Schools began in the mid 1970’s, and has continued since that time.”
“It is an honor to earn the endorsement of Madison Teachers,” Soglin said. “I believe strongly that quality public schools are the single greatest asset a City can have. People and businesses want to locate in a City with strong public schools. Over half of the kids in our schools live in homes below the poverty level. We have to focus on fixing that.”
MTI represents about 4700 employees of the Madison Metropolitan School District, including teachers, social workers, psychologists, educational assistants, librarians, school nurses, clerical staff and other caring, hardworking professionals.
