United Teachers of Los Angeles, the Nation’s Second Largest Teachers Union Local, Endorses Bob Hertzberg for State Senate!

VAN NUYS, CA — Bob Hertzberg, former Speaker of the California State Assembly, and candidate for the San Fernando Valley’s new 18th State Senate District, has secured a decisive and very telling endorsement from the largest union of educators in Los Angeles.

The United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA), which represents more than 31,000 classroom teachers in the City of Los Angeles, has been at the forefront of efforts to reduce class size, restore adult and early childhood education programs, and ensure LA’s schools are fully staffed.

“I’m living proof that investment in public education works,” said Hertzberg. “Educators are catalysts of learning and imagination, and I’m looking forward to working with UTLA to ensure that students as well as teachers are prepared to grapple with an increasingly complex 21st Century economy.”
