The % is skewed because I am using the total returns and not subtracting the non-slate votes. Will recalculate another time.

Things have really slowed up. Here are functional totals:

Ballots sent out: 45,889
Ballots ret: 10,629 - 23.2% ret

Prelim anal:
Unity vote up around 300, ICE down about 200, New Action up around 200 from 2007.
Looks like big endorsement of Mulgrew.


It's 11am and all we have are percentage of returns. I'm a novice excel user and my formulas may be off so take heed. Totals seem to indicate that around 30% voted all together including retirees which is not much more than last time. But the in schools the vote went up from 22% return to around 27%.

  1. Well Norm, I guess people still go for substance over style. Don't take it too hard. All those fancy sounding names (ICE, GEM, CORE, etc.) meant aboslutely zilch.

    Maybe next time you guys should form the DOPES...the Dregs of the Public Education System.

  2. Wow Norm, even New Action, who you constntly pick on here, kicked the crap out of ICE.

  3. I find this so hard to believe. Everything ICE/TJC says makes so much sense to building a better, stronger union and fighting for a better education for the children of our city. Unity only looks out for themselves, meaning those lackeys that constantly tell us the wonderful things they do for us and the great contracts (2005) they negotiated for us. Teachers are so apathetic.

  4. Hey--leave Norm alone! He can't win this all by himself. He is retired and enjoying his twilight years. It's not his fault ICE/TJC lacks any real candidates.

    Keep up the good fight Norman!
