MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) has recommended Kathleen Falk for governor if there is a recall election.
Mary Bell, a teacher and WEAC president, said the recommendation is the next step in the movement that began nearly a year ago.
"Wisconsin educators have been at the forefront of this movement ever since the first attack on worker rights was leveled nearly a year ago," she said.
Bell said representative members on the recommendation committee focused on issues that matter most to educators as part of the selection process. These include commitment to strong public schools, giving employees a voice in the workplace and leadership approach.
Falk, the former Dane County executive, announced she would run for governor in mid-January.
