Howie Hawkins Live Press Conference at 11:30 AM
I'm on the road to Buffalo with Howie and GPNY Comptroller Candidate Mark Dunlea as I write this, and wanted to let you know we'll be livestreaming our 11:30 am news conference there on Facebook Live. We're going to talk about the flagrant corruption behind Cuomo's "Buffalo Billion" that is finally coming to light in the courts, and then we're going to visit community groups across the city to ask if they have seen any evidence that the Buffalo Billion has met its promises to benefit the region.
Also, did you see that our Lt. Governor Candidate is featured in an amazing Indypendent article on the fight to save and equitably fund public schools? Definitely a must-read:
“As teachers, we’re trained to look at the entire child, but as soon as we enter the institution of the Department of Education, we’re suddenly compliance managers,” says Jia Lee. An opt-out parent and a teachers union activist, Lee has worked as a special education instructor at various New York City public schools for 17 years. She is running for lieutenant governor as a Green Party candidate. “The pressure is on the teacher and the administrators to make sure test scores are high,” she says.
See you online at 11:30! Please share with your friends, allies and family.
