Victory for Arizona Educators and Students

AEA-recommended Candidate Katie Hobbs Wins Governor’s Race
Governor-elect Katie Hobbs
Published: November 15, 2022

Arizona students and educators won big in the 2022 election. The Arizona Education Association congratulates Governor-elect Katie Hobbs on her election victory. She values our public school educators, who are some of the most trusted and respected people in every community.

She knows that to attract and retain the best teachers and education support professionals to support students, we need to pay our educators like the professionals they are and give them the respect they deserve. I am a proud union member, a teacher, and a mom of a student in one of Arizona’s amazing public schools. Our students need someone like Governor-elect Hobbs who supports union values and will fight for our working families.

- AEA President Marisol Garcia

Thank you to the union educators who volunteered their time and energy knocking on thousands of doors to get out the vote for Katie Hobbs and other pro-public education candidates this election.

This election shows the power educators have when we stand together in solidarity with the community who supports us.
