NYC Kids PAC Endorse DeBlasio, James, Stringer

From some of our favorite people: Shino, Mario, Isaac, Lisa, Leonie, Andy, Karen and Tesa for NYC Kids PAC

Our candidates still need your help! Please continue to support deBlasio, James and Stringer!
NYC Kids PAC is thrilled to announce that the three terrific individuals we endorsed for citywide office- Bill de Blasio, Scott Stringer and Letitia James - all came in first in last Tuesday night's election, a clear indication that New Yorkers are sick and tired of the Bloomberg policies of high-stakes testing, school closings, rampant privatization, and ignoring the priorities of parents and communities.  But the election is far from over.

We urge you to give donate to Bill de Blasio's campaign for mayor  and volunteer for him, if you can.  You can be sure that millions of dollars will be spent against de Blasio in the general election, by the privatizers and the other special interests who oppose his progressive vision for our public schools.

We also strongly recommend that you give all you can to the campaign of Letitia James, who faces a run off against Daniel Squadron on October 1.  Tish James has stood up for public school parents and our kids again and again, and it's time for us to stand up for her.  You can donate to her campaign here, and sign up as a volunteer here.  

On the other hand, Squadron was the first NY Democrat to propose the bill in the State Senate that renewed mayoral control, is a reliable supporter of charter expansion, and his campaign is being financed by the same lobbyists and hedge fund operators that want to continue the damaging trend of privatizing our public schools.

We've been successful so far - please do not become complacent until the end of this race.  We need to preserve and strengthen our public schools - for the sake of our kids, and for all future NYC kids to come.

And please forward this message to other parents, friends, and colleagues - because every New Yorker should care about this issue.
