MNA members decide which candidates to endorse. Members are involved every step of the way:
- Candidates fill out questionnaires developed by members and approved by the MNA Board of Directors about their positions on MNA issues;
- Members meet with and screen candidates in targeted races;
- Members recommend candidates to the MNA Political Committee, which is made up of the MNA Board of Directors;
- The MNA Board of Directors has the final say on the endorsements, which are posted on MNA’s website during election season.
We respect everyone’s right to vote for whomever they feel would represent them the best, and we encourage members to publicly debate which politicians and policies they favor in places such as the Blog or our MNA Facebook page.
We would love to hear your thoughts on politics and nursing issues along, with what you think MNA can do to engage more nurses in political and policy advocacy – and get involved yourself!
