Candidate for Treasurer

Doug Taylor


I am running for reelection to a second term as your ISTA Treasurer to ensure that ISTA continues to be good stewards of our members’ hard-earned dues money; that we continue to build a strong financial foundation so that ISTA can be there for the next generation of educators; that we continue to prepare educators to be the leaders and advocates our students and colleagues need; and that we continue to build our strength through building relationships in our communities across the state.

As a member of the ISTA leadership team, I commit to listen to your concerns, seek solutions, stand with you, and speak out on your behalf.

Through this campaign, I am renewing my commitment to you, the members of ISTA, and to the vital work we do to improve public schools, the working conditions of our educators, and the learning conditions for our students. ISTA is the only consistent voice for Public Education, public school educators, and our kids.

#YouCanBankonDoug: You can bank on Doug because I do as I say I will do. I strive to follow through on my commitments and show up to participate in actions and discussions that build power for our union.
