This Tuesday, November 6th, from 6:00 AM until 9:00 PM, you have an opportunity to exercise your democratic right. Democracy doesn't work unless "We the People," involve ourselves in the process. NYSUT has over six hundred thousand members; our collective voice will be heard if we individually speak out with our vote.
Get to the polls and perform your civic duty. We need to protect our students, our profession, and our livelihoods.
Be sure to cast your ballot for NYSUT's endorsed candidates for the State Senate. We can not complain about APPR, over testing, or the need for more funding if we do not seize this opportunity to take control of the State Senate.
The current NYS Senate majority leader has clearly shown his cards by calling us forces of evil. It is time for us to ante up and make sure he has a losing hand.
