Budget Results and Today’s Rally
Comsewogue’s school budget passed last night in a landslide, 1,012 votes to 325. In addition all three PJSTA endorsed candidates won. Incumbents Ali Gordon (908 votes) and James Sanchez (754 votes) will serve three year terms and newcomer Rick Rennard (736 votes) will serve the remaining one year of Lance Brown’s term. Brown vacated the position last summer when he moved out of the district. The PJSTA offers it’s enthusiastic congratulations to each of the winners. All three have proven to be tremendous advocates for public education and we look forward to working with them throughout their term as we continue to make Comsewogue the best school district around!
Of course the fight for public education continues today with a rally outside of the New York State Democratic Convention in Melville. This is perhaps the biggest and most important rally in many of our careers. Every PJSTA member should make an enormous effort to be there. We need to send the governor and the legislature one more message before the end of the school year: We will remember in November!
