Hard to understand NYSUT endorsement of IDC Alcantara not only b/c of Robert Jackson’s stellar education record but also b/c Alcantara is one of the biggest recipients of donations from the charter lobby incl the billionaires boys club Waltons, Daniel Loeb, etc. etc. .....There has been no one more loyal to teachers, parents and students than Robert Jackson and many of us appreciate it (I just sent him a 100 bucks). But not the UFT or their clones in NYSUT.

When Cuomo "brokered" the "return" of the IDC to the Dems he began twisting the arms of the unions and others to support them against challengers....
I published a few pieces including a letter from the dissident Ex Bd members urging them to not endorse any IDC backstabbers.
They did endorse Zelnor Myrie against IDC Jesse Hamilton.
There were no endorsements in the Biaggi/Klein, Ramos/Peralta, Robinson or Liu/Avella races.
They endorsed Gounardes over Barkan to face Marty Golden. Dilan over Salazaz.
There are 4 races where they did not endorse plus nothing on the gubernatorial primary while endorsing Letitia James and Thomas DiNapoli.
