==> Upcoming NYSUT Officer
In an effort to keep our membership informed of NYSUT activities at the
state level, I have compiled information below outlining the upcoming NYSUT
elections to be held during the NYSUT Representative Assembly (RA) in New
York City April 4th-6th.
By David Fries
The CSTA is entitled to three delegates to the RA in accordance with the
size of our membership. As prescribed by our Constitution, the CSTA President
attends, along with two elected delegates (Heather Gullo and Nicole Heath).
Delegates to the RA will have the opportunity to debate and vote on proposed
amendments to the NYSUT Constitution and Bylaws and any proposed resolutions.
This being an election year, our representatives will also vote for NYSUT
officers. This year there are contested races for all NYSUT officer positions.
The current NYSUT officer slate of candidates:
Richard Iannuzzi, President
Maria Neira, 1st Vice President
2nd Vice President
Lee Cutler Secretary-Treasurer
The current Executive Vice President, Andrew Pallotta has chosen not to
re-run with the current NYSUT officers. Instead, he has chosen to run with
a group of opposition candidates.
The current NYSUT officers’ website is www.strongernysut.com.
The Revive NYSUT slate of candidates:
Karen Magee, President
Andrew Pallotta, Executive Vice President
R. Fortino, 1st Vice President
Paul Pecorale, 2nd Vice President
The opposition candidates website www.revivenysut.org.
At this time there is an additional candidate (not aligned with either
slate) for the position of Executive Vice President, Arthur Goldstein.
Arthur Goldstein is a ESL teacher at Francis Lewis High School in Queens
and a UFT Chapter Leader.
If you are interested in learning more about the candidates in the upcoming
NYSUT elections and their positions on educational issues, I would encourage
you to review information contained on the websites indicated above. If
you would like to share any comments, or if you have questions/concerns
about the elections or the RA, please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or cell# 439-1261.

Action with NYSUT's MAC
We are all aware of the fight for confidentiality for our evaluations.
I urge you to go to https://mac.nysut.org and join NYSUT's Member Action
Center from your home computer. Send your fax to your legislators and
the governor that your personal evaluation needs to be kept personal,
and don't do it once, do it twice every day. Share the information and
site with your family and friends and ask them to send their faxes. "Like" the
MAC site and add them to your Facebook
page. Take action, remind your
colleagues and push back.
