The Providence Teachers Union, Local 958
The Providence Teachers Union is proud to endorse John Goncalves as a member of the Providence City Council – Ward 1. John is an educator, alumnus of Providence Public Schools, and an advocate for our students. Moreover, he understands the importance of investing in our City’s educators, students and school infrastructure.
Our organization endorses John Goncalves as both a political candidate and community leader. He has demonstrated his capacity of organization and community outreach by being a co-founding member of the Providence Coalition of Neighborhood Associations; a collective network of neighborhood leaders that work to collaboratively address shared issues. Coupled with his commitment to equity, John’s ability to bring people together will benefit the residents of Ward 1 and the City of Providence. We look forward to working with John in order to improve working conditions for educators and learning conditions for our students.
Who you vote for is your choice. However, the PTU encourages you to support Goncalves as a member of the Providence City Council.
