Obama Campaign Announces New Hampshire Educators for Obama

Leading teachers, administrators and policy makers join campaign for real change

MANCHESTER , NH— Senator Barack Obama’s New Hampshire campaign todayannounced the membership of its New Hampshire Educators for Obama. The group, consisting of 100 educators, administrators and policymakers involved at all levels of the state’s educational system, will coordinate outreach and advise the campaign on education issues.

“Barack Obama started his career working in disadvantaged communities, and he knows that a good education is the key to opportunity,” said Bob MacLellan, Educators for Obama State Chair. “He’s committed to an honest, open dialogue with educators about helping students excel. And he knows that we need more than just slogans to develop the next generation of leaders—which is why he’ll redouble our efforts to recruit new teachers and support educators at every stage of their career.”

**New Hampshire Educators for Obama members are available to speak to the media. Please contact Reid Cherlin for details at (603) 668-2008.
