"But this is important enough that we are working together to try to get information to the voters about where these candidates really stand on education issues."
The campaign will promote recommended candidates in the governor's race, as well as elections for the state legislature and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. LAE President Debbie Meaux says this campaign is an effort to help voters make an informed decision.
"We want to make sure that the citizens of our state not only listen to the lip service that is given by candidates, but that they know educators stand behind certain candidates."
A website has been set up to promote candidates at itstimelouisiana-dot-com. They will also use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to get their message out. Landon says this is a very important election for public schools and the children of Louisiana.
"We think it's time that people really start paying attention to what candidates for public office are saying about education."
