Executive Board TSP Designated

Two candidates successfully qualified to be nominated for the office of Executive Board TSP Designated. On the ballot, voters who are TSP's will select one preferred candidate. Both were invited to the Executive Officer Candidate 2019 Forum Member meetings where they had the opportunity to be videoed for this page. All Executive Board candidates were invited to submit a candidate statement of 125 words by February 15.


My name is Laurie Jones. I am your candidate for TSP Designee on the Executive Board. I have been a BTU member for 14 years and a steward for 12.

I work diligently to actively support and promote BTU, including recruiting 43 TSP members. I am stepping up to the Executive Board in search of a broader challenge—increasing solidarity amongst members.

After speaking with numerous members, I know we have a lot in common. By voicing the concerns, duties and responsibilities of the TSP unit, and sharing how TSPs assist teaching and learning, BTU can better work together to have a solidified voice.

I’ll be a voice for members and am ready to do the work to serve you. Vote Laurie Jones—TSP Designee.

I am running for the BTU Executive Board (TSP designated seat) because I have the dedication, experience, integrity, and courage necessary to represent the TSP members with fairness and equity. I am a lifelong unionist who believes in workers right and living wage for all workers.

Being a KCW TSP Master Steward and a current BTU Executive Board member, I understand the importance of being part of union and being represented by union. BTU-TSP unit needs a leader who can lead the unit’s interest at local, state, and national forum.

I, as a current BTU Executive Board member, have that experience and leadership qualities. In addition, I served as the TSP area coordinator and currently serving at the Superintendent’s Insurance and Wellness Advisory Committee.
