ACTION ALERT - Urgent!
Rally at Villa Lombardi's
877 Main Street Holbrook, NY 11741
MONDAY, April 28, 2014 4 pm.
On Monday, April 28, educators and supporters of public education will assemble at the Villa Lombardi in Holbrook, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be attending the Suffolk Democratic dinner. We hope to send Gov. Cuomo and his supporters a clear message that the 2% tax cap in New York will destroy public education in Long Island. Now is your chance to join us!
If you've ever wanted to tell the Governor how you feel about his policies regarding educators and other public employees and the damage he has done to public education and public services generally, this is your chance!!
This is our opportunity as a region to let the Governor know that his favor-the-rich polices are bad for everyone else and ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! It's an opportunity we can't afford to miss.
We need to let Cuomo know that
· His tax cap is destroying our fine public schools
· The Common Core implementation has been and continues to be a travesty
· The outrage of educators and parents about high stakes standardized tests is more than just "drama and noise"
· The Cuomo agenda of privatizing public services serves the interests of only one constituency - the wealthy supporters who have built his $33 million reelection war chest
Together, WE WILL BE THE VOICE HE CAN'T IGNORE!
Please take this important action.
Rep Council Meetings are held monthly for the purposes of completing the business of the Syosset Teachers Union. Each building elects representatives (1 per 10 members, or greater part thereof), including a Head Rep, who are responsible for attending meetings and voting on behalf of their staff. Head Reps, along with the support of building reps, then disseminate information.
