B-PAC

rally2

The Beaverton Political Action Committee (B-PAC) is a long standing committee that communicates proposed legislative positions and recommends political candidates to the BEA membership. This committee is made up of BEA volunteers and any member may request appointment to this committee.

BEA has a long history of working on behalf of education professionals and students by providing a strong political voice. We are proud of our Washington County Delegation of Legislators who have been leaders in Salem to insure funding of Public Education.

BEA takes its leadership role seriously and plays a pivotal role in electing pro public education candidates. Each decision that B-PAC makes is based on our pro public education criteria.

  • Promote Safe Schools
  • Prepare Students for Future Jobs
  • Provide Adequate and Stable School Funding
  • Preserve Education Employees' Benefits
