Well over a year after former Delaware State Education Association President Mike Matthews resigned from his position, he announced last night he is seeking a seat on the Executive Board of DSEA.
Hello, friends. Hope you’re doing OK. Not going to take a lot of your time.
Just reaching out to all of my friends and Delaware educators on here to let you know I’ve just submitted my petition to DSEA to run for a seat on their Executive Board. New Castle County gets 16 seats and 8 of those seats are up this year.
As a former state and local leader, I want to continue to be an advocate for educators and students in Dover. Times remain turbulent in education today and we need assertive voices in the mix to make sure our concerns are front and center with both our state union leadership and elected officials in Dover.
The election will be in January. You should receive your ballot by email. If you’re a DSEA member, I would love having your vote and I would love it if you would consider sharing this message to let your friends know I’m running.
This is not a statewide election. Only members who work in New Castle County will be able to vote in my election. I would be humbled to earn your vote.
Thank you all for your continued love and support over the last year. It has gotten me through a really tough time, but I like to think I’m back and my engine is fired up again.
I wish I could say I was shocked but I’m not. Matthews is not one to stay quiet for too long. I couldn’t believe he managed to stay off Facebook for seven months. But the Red Clay teacher isn’t quite done with his union work. Will Matthews get back into DSEA? Could this be a sign of Matthews seeking the Presidential seat again at some point? Time will tell!
