Hello community members,
United Teachers of Richmond CTA/NEA (UTR) will be holding its endorsement interviews for WCCUSD school board on August 12th, 2016 at the UTR office. If you are a candidate and would like to be part of our endorsement process please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

We will be endorsing two candidates.
