I’d been geared up to vote for Kathy Hochul in the major suitable up until eventually she unsuccessful to indicator the class dimension bill that passed both the Assembly and the Senate. I was likely to forget about the point that she was Cuomo’s range two, that she supported the tax cap on non-town universities, that she supported tax credits for all those donating to non-public colleges, and her preposterous assumption that charters would in some way lessen the overcrowding in general public schools.
In truth, given the chance to assistance us do a better job, Hochul has so significantly unsuccessful to consider the only action I know of that would unquestionably help kids. She’s evidently concerned extra with funds than schooling. Shelling out 1.4 billion on a stadium to in the end enrich some billionaire is fine with her. But our youngsters are not a priority. No ponder she supported a 4-12 months unconditional extension of mayoral manage for Eric Swagger Adams.
Jumaane Williams will help much better schooling for town pupils. He’ll assist housing for those of us who actually need to have it, as opposed to gazillionaires wanting to establish stadiums. He’ll stand up for individuals irrespective of how significantly cash they have.
Up coming Tuesday, in the Democratic Most important, vote for Jumaane Williams, vote to support our faculties, communities and jobs, and vote for authentic modify.
