Sutton garners SDEA Endorsement

Politics: Sutton gains state education group endorsement


News Staff - September 11, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Democratic Candidate for Governor Billie Sutton picked up a big endorsement today.

The South Dakota Education Association’s Educators Political Involvement  Committee met today to announce their support for Sutton.

The announcement follows Sutton’s round table discussion with educators in Sioux Falls.

S.D.E.A. President Mary McCorkle says they were thankful for Sutton’s role in the Blue Ribbon Task Force – which helped raise teacher pay.

McCorkle says “as educators we know that every decision about our classrooms and schools is a political decision. We also know that in the coming year, South Dakotans will elect a new governor who will have a tremendous impact on those decisions. That is why it is crucial that as educators, we raise our voices and help elect the candidate who has demonstrated time and time again that providing a great education for all students, regardless of their zip code, is a priority.”

In addition to today’s roundtable discussion, Sutton held a Back to School Town Hall call to get feedback on his Education for the Next Generation plan. Educators have also organized in support of Sutton on Facebook with an Educators for Sutton group.

Sutton is facing Republican Kristi Noem and Libertarian Kurt Evans in November for South Dakota Governor.
