Education Minnesota, with 70,000 members, says it’s the state’s largest union.
Education Minnesota President Tom Dooher said in a press release:
“Our members were impressed with Tarryl Clark’s passion, her grasp of the issues and her commitment to working with us to benefit Minnesota’s students. We look forward to helping elect a representative from the 6th District who will fight for students, educators and public schools.”
