Fairfield Education Association and the PTA Council Education Candidates Forum
PTAC cosponsored an Education Forum with the Fairfield Education Association on
October 17, 2018.
The state office candidates were seated at tables for two – by district – and both answered the same questions making it easy to compare candidates.
Far Left Table: 132nd Representative District: Brenda Kupchick (R) and Caitlin Clarkson Pereira (D)
Middle Left Table: 28th Senatorial District: Tony Hwang (R) and Michelle Lapine McCabe (D)
Middle Right Table: 133rd Representative District: Cristin McCarthy Vahey (D) and Sally Connolly (R)
Far Right Table: 134th Representative District: Laura Devlin (R) and Ashley Gaudiano (D)
1. teacher qualifications
2. standardized testing
3. student anxiety
4. charter schools
5. collective bargaining
6. incumbents only – vote revisiting?
7. challengers only – what will you do?
9. diversity/racial imbalance/inequity
We hope that you will enjoy learning about the different positions each candidate has to offer on education.
