A S S O C I AT I O N G OV E R NA N C E 2012 AEA Board of Director Candidates NEA STATE DIRECTOR Jason Freed I ask for your support for State Director to the NEA. You have chosen to elect, and then re-elect me to the position of Alternate Director. When I sought your support, I committed to change the position from a "fill in" job to a training position. I believe that is what has happened. Under the tutelage of Janie Hydrick and Annie Crego, I have had the opportunity to attend NEA Board Meetings, sit in on NEA Fund Meetings and lobby members of the Arizona delegation to the U.S. Congress both at home and in Washington. Janie and Annie have acted as my mentors, and they have trained me well. I also want you to know, that at the current time, the only elected position I hold is NEA Alternate Director. Though I have been active on AEA committees and working on committees and member recruitment in my local, I have chosen to concentrate my energies on my NEA responsibilities. I have fulfilled the promises I made to you when I sought the position of Alternate Director and I now ask that you elect me to the position I have been training for these past 6 years, NEA Director. I appreciate your support, your vote and what you do for our Association. Vote for JASON FREED for NEA Director!!

We need experienced leaders to stimulate significant membership, political and professional gains if we hope to continue to be the prominent voice for education in Arizona. AEA has given so much to me personally and professionally and I would be honored to earn your vote and support as your next NEA Director. I have been preparing for this position for over 10 years through my work as a local association president, a regional director, and a state leader. I am the only candidate with experience as an early childhood educator, an elementary teacher, a high school teacher and a community college faculty member. I can provide the stories from all areas of our profession to share with our elected leaders in Arizona and Washington, D.C. so they can know what each one of us do in the name of public education. I am ready to be your next NEA Director, not from what I have been waiting to do, but from what I have been doing on your behalf for the last 10 years. Please vote for Angela Philpot for NEA Director.
