OPEA supports candidates for state office who either have a proven track record of standing up for state employees, retired state employees and core state services or whose candidacy reflects that they will support our members, if elected. OPEA political endorsements are based only on state employee and retiree issues. Our members come from all walks of life and experiences but we share the common goal of improving state employment and retirement. Therefore, OPEA will endorse candidates who we believe will work for our issues at the state capitol.

OPEA members come from all walks of life and experiences but we have a common goal of improving state employment and retirement, as well as the services our members provide. When statewide and legislative elections are held, we endorse candidates who also share that goal. There are no other issues considered when OPEA endorses a candidate. The only thing OPEA’s political action committee trustees consider is whether a candidate will work towards our goal if elected. Our candidates may have different stances on other issues but what matters is Will they work to improve state employment and retirement.

If you live in one of these senate districts, we urge you to vote for the OPEA endorsed candidate. The more elected officials we have who support state employee and retiree issues the more we can accomplish at the legislature.
