SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Education Association’s political action committee, IPACE, the Illinois Political Action Committee for Education, and the National Education Association’s political action committee, the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education, picked Congressman Rodney Davis for re-election over Democrat challenger Anne Callis.
“Congressman Rodney Davis has the right values and vision to continue to speak up in Congress for educators and students,” said Cinda Klickna, president of the Illinois Education Association.
"He knows the important role education plays in preparing students for the jobs of tomorrow so that America can compete in the global marketplace. We look forward to continuing to work with Rep. Davis in Washington.”
Representative Davis shares the NEA's values, echoed NEA President Dennis Van Roekel.
“He’s a champion of working families, and if reelected, he will continue to work hard to make our economy work for all of us," Van Roekel said.
Davis pleased the IEA and NEA with legislation he introduced that would repeal the Government Pension Offset and the Windfall Elimination Provision
