CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Dale Lee will seek a fifth term leading the West Virginia Education Association.
Lee announced his decision on Tuesday’s MetroNews “Talkline,” noting with 2020 being an election year, he needs to remain as president for stability.
“This one really is the most important election of our time,” Lee said. “We have to get some moderate people who want to move West Virginia forward in the House and Senate that want to look at public education for our students and really make sure we fund that correctly and are doing the right things with it.”
The education union has not made an endorsement yet in this year’s cycle. When asked if it would endorse Gov. Jim Justice, Lee said there is a process in approving endorsements.
