Christina Reidel is going to NYSUT's Committee of 100 lobbying day this week to speak to our legislators and represent us and our concerns.
Here's what NYSUT says about the priorities for lobbying:
The second of NYSUT’s annual grassroots lobbying events brings hundreds to Albany next week. With a month left in the legislative session, the union’s priorities are clearly drawn. The NYSUT volunteer lobbyists will demand that lawmakers: First and foremost, protect teacher privacy in evaluations; reform the tax cap law; pass the New York DREAM Act; and save Downstate Medical Center as a fully functional hospital, among other unresolved issues.
Support Christina and NYSUT by going to the NYSUT MAC site to take action on all these issues; more letters and messages provide tremendous support to the lobbying efforts in Albany.
