 2) Democratic Primary Sept 10:

What happens in local elections does affect our situation in the schools.  It is important for us all to go out and vote.  To vote in a party primary election, you need to be a member of that party.

Two candidates in local elections in this year’s Democratic Primary have actively supported our candidates for school board over the years:

    • Emilia White (Spring Valley Trustee) Emilia was our candidate for East Ramapo School Board in 2009.  She is married to Steven White, editor of this e-newsletter. Emilia has become well known for standing up to bullying from the school board presidents.
    • Rita Louie (Haverstraw Town Supervisor) Rita has taken responsibility for our door-to-door campaign in her neighborhood several times.

One candidate this year has been part of the opposition to our movement.  Dan Friedman worked for the local paper which notoriously published its view that “the board needs to be accountable to (private schools) first.”
