Here's an Update from Mike Grubiak, NYSUT's Regional Political Action Coordinator
With over 150 NYSUT volunteers we made 7,526 phone calls or door knocks and had conversations with 883 NYSUT members to discuss our 6 local candidates who were endorsed for their pro-public education stance in the month of October.
After the dust has settled we won:
- Dutchess County Leg- Craig Brendli- Poughkeepsie MS Teacher
- Won by 150 votes
- Wappingers Town Supervisor: Greg Quinn- UFT Member
- Won by 12 Votes
- Dutchess County Leg-: Hannah Black
- Won by 55%
- We also worked to elect Andrew Falk to Patterson Town Supervisor where after the absentee ballots have been counted we narrowly lost by 18 votes.
