Dear OEA member,
My name is Daniel Manuel and I am running for NEA Category I Delegate at Large NEA Representative Assembly. I am a support personnel that is also a firefighter. I’m very active in both unions and a strong advocate for public education. Not only did I work hard for SQ 779, I continue to advocate by going to the Capital and organizing events for our cause. I am also running for House of Representatives District 25 in 2018 to take our voice to the Capital. Please vote for me and ask other members to vote for me also as I desire to continue representing, advocating, and serving our profession and the students we are here to educate. Just simply go to and click the vote now link.
Thank you, Daniel Manuel
