Letters to the Editor: Election 2018: Vote for James Skoufis for State Senate

August 02, 2018

 Letter to the Editor:

If
you believe it is important that our children and grandchildren have good local public schools to attend then it is crucial to vote for James Skoufis for State Senate. As an Assemblyman, James Skoufis has advocated for students, parents, teachers, and taxpayers
alike to help improve our local schools. He has secured record school funding and important investments to make our schools safer.

Additionally,
Skoufis' opponent would be devastating for our local schools. Mr. Basile has been hand-picked by the Albany political bosses who are beholden to private New York City Charter Schools. These Charter Schools have super PACs that pour money into their campaigns.
In return, Basile and his political bosses promise to send our tax dollars to these private New York City Charter Schools when it comes time to do the state budget.

As
proof, even Republican County Legislator Mike Anagnostakis said that Basile is "backed by extremists looking to defund public schools; having consulted for "New York For Independent Action," a group advocating Albany shifts money from public schools to private
religious and charter schools; and staying silent when a religious sect destroyed a Rockland County school district."

If
you are a parent or a grandparent, you should be very concerned. This race is important and we need to elect James Skoufis for the sake of our kids' education.

Thanks,

Rich Steger (Proud Public School Teacher and Town of Newburgh Resident)
