"I am excited to endorse Uriah Ward for St. Paul School Board. His experience as a middle school teacher is a critical perspective that is desperately needed on the board. His community organizing shows that he is a hard worker, who can bring people together even in the most challenging of situations. But more than anything Uriah has demonstrated a clear desire to put St. Paul students first. As a parent of a SPPS student, I trust Uriah to protect and care for all of our students, and I am proud to endorse his campaign for St. Paul School Board."
Council Member Nelsie Yang
Saint Paul City Council Ward 6
"I'm ecstatic to endorse Uriah Ward - a leader with integrity and commitment to our public schools and fighting for our most marginalized students, families, and educators. He proved this over and over again during his time in the classroom as an educator, as an advisor, & as a worker unionizing his current workplace. Electing Uriah Ward as our next school board member is how we continue building the movement for restorative justice, fully funding our public schools, and building public schools that are reflective of our diverse community's needs."
Commissioner Trista MatasCastillo

“I’m excited to support Uriah Ward, for St Paul School Board. Uriah brings a unique perspective from teaching in the classroom to funding for higher Ed and all the connections in between. His work organizing for our students and our educators will be valuable as we make investments in our schools and programs to ensure we are addressing issues of historic racial inequities and investing in the future that benefits all St Paul students.”

He has a strong understanding of the issues facing our schools and I'm confident he will approach those issues thoughtfully. He has been a great advocate for our students and I hope you'll join me in supporting him!"
