IT IS SHOW TIME!
Needless to say, the primary focus now until November 6 is the elections. It is imperative that we do everything possible to get out the vote for the following:
TIM BISHOP-Congressional District 1
RICARDO MONTANO-Senatorial District 4
We need a face-to-face push for these two seats.
`Tim has always been supportive of our issues and he is in need of our help.
`Ricardo is on the ballot primarily because of the efforts of Ron Smith and our members so we need to show our strength further and get him elected.
In addition, some locals have decided to offer support to Ryan Cronin in Senatorial District 6 who is running against Kemp Hannon. There was a great deal of discussion at the endorsement conference but NYSUT ultimately chose not to endorse anyone; however, Kemp Hannon has not supported us for some time and local leaders view Ryan Cronin as a viable opponent who could be a great ally to public education.
Suggestions to get the correct vote out:
Monthly Solidarity Message:
Reverend Cletus Kiley delivers the invocation to the 2011 Building Trades National Legislative Conference. It is a powerful video which is sure to get people talking.
