Legislative Update - April 2018

The National Council for Workforce Education

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

April 2018

NCWE MEMBERS RUNNING FOR STATE ELECTED POSITIONS

In lieu of our regular Legislative Update, we are featuring two National Council for Workforce Education members, Dr. Erin Frasier and Dr. Sherry Shipley, who are currently running for elected office in their respective states of Washington and Indiana. Erin, a policy associate with the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges, is a candidate for State Representative in the 19th legislative district. Sherry, the dean for multiple schools within Ivy Tech Community College Lafayette, is a candidate for the Indiana State Senate District 22, serving Tippecanoe County. Both are Democrats. In this interview, they describe why they decided to run and what actions they would take if elected, particularly regarding workforce education.

The Government Relations Committee thought that NCWE members might enjoy learning how these two members became politically active and what advice they have for others. Whether you have ever considered running for office yourself, or you would simply like to become a stronger advocate for your students and programs, we hope you will find their perspectives interesting.
