Camille Wells, campaign manager for state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna’s re-election campaign, had this statement in response to the teachers’ rally on the Statehouse steps today for Luna’s Democratic challenger, Stan Olson: “It’s no surprise that union leaders are supporting the Democrat candidate. Because Superintendent Luna has focused on students and resources in the classroom, he has strong support from teachers who are currently working hard in the classroom. The union’s priorities are clearly different and do not reflect the opinion of most teachers.”
