NASHVILLE (AP) – The state's largest teachers union has hired a new chief lobbyist.

The Tennessee Education Association announced this week that it will be represented by Jim Wrye.

Wrye previously worked as communications director for the Alabama Education Association where he was a leader in the association's successful fight to stop charter schools in the state.

Wrye replaces Jerry Winters, who left TEA in December after representing the group at the state Capitol for more than 30 years.
