Fresno Teachers Association Will Hold 4th Election in 5 Months

Background here.

The Fresno Bee reports:

The California Teachers Association, parent organization of the Fresno Teachers Association, has called for a third runoff election for president. It will be the fourth election for the office since April.

The CTA said in a letter last week to Fresno union members that the new election will begin Oct. 9 with the same candidates: current president Eva Ruiz and challenger Mai Summer Vue.

CTA officials said the decision to hold another election was made after it investigated the two previous runoff elections held in May and July. The letter did not say why the state association was ordering a new election. But it said the election would be conducted by the CTA’s Elections Committee, not the local union.
