The race between incumbent Karen Boback and challenger James May has centered around teachers strikes. May has attacked her for taking at least $9200 from the PSEA implying she supports the right of teachers to go on strike. Boback has denied that pointing out she wrote legislation to prevent teacher strikes (HR562, 1/23/2008).
A few days ago the PSEA PAC sent out a voters guide type mailer to the district endorsing Boback. One of the reasons they endorsed her is circled. It says they endorse candidates that "Oppose legislation that would eliminate the right to strike by public school employees."
