The September 13th NYS Primary is (literally) around the corner – as you probably know, our allies in the Senate and Assembly were critical in defending CUNY’s budget and pushing for funding that made our contract settlement possible. Now we need to return them to office and help elect new legislators who will be strong advocates for CUNY, our union, and students.
Six candidates in New York City are in primary elections where a strong PSC turnout could make the difference: Pam Harris (AD 46), Latrice Walker (AD 55), Paul Newell (AD 65), Victor Pichardo (AD 86), Gustavo Rivera (SD 33) and Robert Jackson (SD 31).
Our chapter will be phone banking on Monday, September 12th, 6:30pm – 8:30pm in the Political Science lounge (room 5200). Bring a laptop, cell-phone, and headphones (with a mic). Last minute calls can have a big impact on voter turnout, so we encourage you to come and support your union electorally!
-Rosa Squillacote, Legislative and Elections Committee
