I would been ready to vote for Kathy Hochul in the primary ideal up right up until she failed to signal the course measurement invoice that passed both of those the Assembly and the Senate. I was going to forget about the fact that she was Cuomo’s quantity two, that she supported the tax cap on non-metropolis educational facilities, that she supported tax credits for those people donating to private schools, and her preposterous assumption that charters would somehow cut down the overcrowding in general public faculties.
In actuality, specified the possibility to assist us do a greater task, Hochul has so far unsuccessful to get the only action I know of that would surely help children. She’s clearly concerned additional with money than education. Paying out 1.4 billion on a stadium to in the long run enrich some billionaire is high-quality with her. But our children are not a precedence. No surprise she supported a four-12 months unconditional extension of mayoral manage for Eric Swagger Adams.
Jumaane Williams will assist improved training for metropolis college students. He’ll help housing for individuals of us who in fact want it, as opposed to gazillionaires searching to construct stadiums. He’ll stand up for persons regardless of how considerably hard cash they have.
Future Tuesday, in the Democratic Principal, vote for Jumaane Williams, vote to assist our universities, communities and jobs, and vote for actual improve.
