I might been geared up to vote for Kathy Hochul in the primary correct up right until she failed to indication the course size bill that handed equally the Assembly and the Senate. I was heading to ignore the fact that she was Cuomo’s amount two, that she supported the tax cap on non-town faculties, that she supported tax credits for those people donating to non-public universities, and her preposterous assumption that charters would by some means lower the overcrowding in public universities.
In point, offered the chance to assistance us do a superior task, Hochul has hence much failed to take the only motion I know of that would definitely assistance youngsters. She’s plainly worried extra with income than training. Paying out 1.4 billion on a stadium to in the long run enrich some billionaire is high-quality with her. But our young children are not a priority. No question she supported a 4-calendar year unconditional extension of mayoral command for Eric Swagger Adams.
Jumaane Williams will help superior education and learning for city pupils. He’ll aid housing for these of us who really need to have it, as opposed to gazillionaires hunting to establish stadiums. He’ll stand up for people regardless of how much income they have.
Up coming Tuesday, in the Democratic Primary, vote for Jumaane Williams, vote to help our colleges, communities and work opportunities, and vote for actual modify.
