CFT recommends Thurmond for State Superintendent & Newsom for Governor

Tony Thurmond for Superintendent of Public Instruction

tony thurmond web 2

The CFT endorses Richmond Assemblymember Tony Thurmond for state superintendent of public instruction. President Josh Pechthalt said Thurmond, a former social worker, has demonstrated “time and again he is a champion of public education. His policy positions solidly align him with the needs of students, parents, and educators.”

He recognizes the critical need to address California’s teacher shortage, and advocates for attracting and retaining qualified educators by providing affordable housing, recruitment bonuses, scholarships and higher wages. He supports raising California up from near the bottom of the states in per pupil funding through progressive tax reforms. He sponsored a bill to bolster early childhood education enrollment by taxing private prison corporations.

In comparison to the Trump/DeVos education agenda, Thurmond—a former school board member—opposes vouchers and other schemes to shift taxpayer dollars from public education to private hands. He believes charter schools should be held to the same standards of access, transparency and accountability as public schools, and firmly opposes for-profit charters.

Gavin Newsom for Governor
20180324CFTConv0626 NewsomThe CFT has endorsed Gavin Newsom for the state’s top office. Newsom has an impressive track record of public service as the current lieutenant governor of California and the former mayor of San Francisco. Newsom presents a clear progressive vision for our state anchored by fully funded and supported public schools. He has articulated a willingness to continue local control, hold charter schools accountable, and identify further sources of stable revenue to fund public education and vital social services. He also demonstrated a deep knowledge of the issues facing public sector labor unions and pledged to defend California’s position as a progressive leader on issues like immigration, LGBTQ rights, and the environment.

CFT endorses Gavin Newsom for governor, Thurmond for superintendent

After soliciting member feedback for almost two months, the CFT Executive Council on December 2, 2017, endorsed Gavin Newsom for the state’s top office. Newsom has an impressive track record of public service as the current lieutenant governor of California and the former mayor of San Francisco.

During an interview with the Executive Council, Newsom presented a clear progressive vision for our state anchored by fully funded and supported public schools. He articulated a willingness to continue local control, hold charter schools accountable, and identify further sources of stable revenue to fund public education and vital social services.

Newsom also demonstrated a deep knowledge of the issues facing public sector labor unions in the Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court case and pledged to defend California’s position as a progressive leader on issues like immigration, LGBTQ rights, and the environment.

Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction

In June 2017, the CFT Executive Council enthusiastically and unanimously endorsed Assemblymember Tony Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.tony thurmond web

Thurmond has demonstrated time and again he is a champion of public education. His policy positions solidly align him with the needs of students, parents, and educators. Recognizing the critical need to address California’s teacher shortage, he advocates for attracting and retaining qualified teachers by providing affordable housing, recruitment bonuses, scholarships and higher wages. He supports raising California up from near the bottom of the states in per pupil funding through progressive tax reforms. He sponsored a bill to bolster early childhood education enrollment by taxing private prison corporations.

Thurmond has worked tirelessly to reduce truancy, expand community schools, and facilitate restorative justice programs. He has crafted bills to help foster youth go to college.

In distinction to the Trump/DeVos regime, Thurmond—a former school board member—opposes vouchers and other schemes to shift taxpayer dollars from public education to private hands. He believes charter schools should be held to the same standards of access, transparency and accountability as public schools, and firmly opposes for-profit charters.

A former social worker, Thurmond recognizes that factors outside of school can impede teaching and learning. Because he understands the hardships students face, Thurmond supports expanding school-based health, mental health, and social service programs. He believes health care is a right, not a privilege.

This unanimous endorsement vote by CFT’s executive council reflects the views of our members at all levels of the union, from early childhood through the UC system. We are proud to stand with Tony Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Alex Padilla for Secretary of State and Betty Yee for State Controller

In other races, CFT has also endorsed the reelection of Secretary of State Alex Padilla and State Controller Betty Yee.

General Election 2016: Hillary Clinton for U.S. President, Kamala Harris for U.S. Senate

The AFT and the CFT have endorsed Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. In vision, experience and leadership, she is the candidate we need in the White House. Clinton is a tested leader who has fought for the issues most important to AFT members and our communities as a U.S. Senator from New York with a 100 percent AFT voting record, and as U.S. Secretary of State.

As president, Clinton will fight to ensure a stronger, fairer economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, while advancing racial justice and equity for all. She will fight for strong public schools; to make higher education free for more students; to protect and build on the Affordable Care Act; and to to safeguard our retirement security and the right of strong unions to bargain collectively.

Kamala Harris is the educators' choice

For the first time in 24 years Californians will fill an open U.S. Senate seat and the CFT has endorsed Attorney General Kamala Harris for that office. As the state’s top attorney, Harris has taken the lead on issues important to educators, working to reduce elementary school truancy and set young students on the path to educational success. She created the Bureau of Children’s Justice to protect our state’s youth. And she fought the big banks during the foreclosure crisis to defend the communities in which we live and work.
