An Introduction from Jia Lee

My name is Jia Lee and I'm seeking the Green Party nomination for Lieutenant Governor. I hope to meet you at the convention on Saturday, where I will formally request the nomination, but I also wanted to introduce myself to those who can't make it. I have been a New York City special education public school teacher for seventeen years and UFT chapter leader for ten years. I am also a proud public school parent. I am proud to be a member of a caucus within the United Federation of Teachers called the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE). Besides opting my child out of the state tests, I organize with other parents and educators in New York City and across the state to expose the harmful impact of high stakes standardized testing.  Continue reading

Manley to run for School Board

Elijah Manley to file for qualification to run for School Board, At-Large Seat #8 for the elections of August 28th, 2018 Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Elijah Manley has been running for the school board of Broward County, At-large Seat #8 since February 2017. Manley is the youngest candidate to run for school board in the county’s history, at age 19. He has raised more than $10k as of April 2018, to challenge incumbent school board member Donna Pilger Korn.

The Contradictions of Cross-Endorsements in the Governor's Race

That didn't take long. On Saturday, April 13 the Working Families Party endorsed Democrat Cynthia Nixon for New York Governor. By the following Tuesday, the WFP said they didn't really mean it. "We will not be a spoiler," said Bill Lipton, the WFP's political director, indicating that the WFP will take Nixon off its ballot line if she loses the Democratic primary against Governor Andrew Cuomo. Perhaps the WFP will offer Cuomo their ballot line for a third time if he wins the Democratic primary – if he will take it. Continue reading
