Montana AFL-CIO Statement on Decision to Endorse Melissa Romano for Superintendent of Public Instruction

“Melissa Romano was the clear choice for the Montana AFL-CIO in this race. Melissa is committed to providing every student in Montana with the quality education they deserve. Melissa also knows the best way to ensure these opportunities is through strong teachers unions that allow our public educators to fight for their students, focus on their jobs and to collectively bargain for their benefits. 

“A large threat looms over public education as we know it in Montana. Greg Gianforte and Elsie Arntzen setting the agenda for how the state’s education system operates would do irreparable harm. Today’s  Supreme Court ruling on Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, which violates Montana’s  Constitution, demands an experienced public educator taking over as our Superintendent of Public Instruction.”
