1) Get On This Bus!
On April 28, buses will leave Rockland for Albany, bound to deliver our message of support for the Bill for Oversight for East Ramapo.
I am making a personal plea to every person reading this message. Get on this bus. Take the day off from work. Bring the kids. Bring your neighbors. Bring your friends. If you ever spent a moment asking yourself what you could do that would most help the children to have an opportunity for a better education, THIS IS IT!!!

3) Protests Continue
Even when the school board cancels, the community still shows up to protest. This past Tuesday, 75 people stod out in the cold. Some did not know the board had canceled at the last minute for lack of a quorum (again!). Others came to show that we cannot be distracted from our goal. How sad is it that our school board members are so often unable to make meetings.
The next meeting is scheduled for April 14, at 7:30 PM, the protest will be held at 7:00.
The address is 105 S. Madison Ave, Spring Valley
To receive reminders about meetings or cancellations, text the word POWEROFTEN to 84483 from your mobile phone.
4) School Election Update
The school board election is May 19. You can get involved by coming to an informational event. Learn about the issues and how you can get involved. This campaign period is short. All of us will need to participate and solicit others to help us as well. Please ask your friends and neighbors to join us. We need all of you to help communicate with the voting public so they will be aware of how the school boards fiscal mismanagement is destroying our kids future and our home values. This effort is dedicated to providing the information that every voter need to know.
