The Loudoun Education Association (LEA) PAC recommends Erika Ogedegbe for the Leesburg School Board election. Erika shares our vision and we look forward to partnering with her as we work to achieve our goals.

We believe the single most important thing that we as educators can do for education is to fight with an equal voice for policy reform and work conditions. With Erika’s strong stance in support of collective bargaining, we believe that she will help us achieve that goal.
