NYC voters: PRIMARY DAY:TOMORROW, 9/15, you have a choice!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009, is primary day in New York City

You do have important choices, voices that are alternatives to Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Napoleonic power-trip in NYC schools.

Both William Thompson and Tony Avella are opposing Bloomberg on his education record. I am endorsing Tony Avella for his stronger, more vocal opposition to Bloomberg and Joel Klein's super-control, cynical policies at the Department of Education.
Here's a video of his opposition to charter schools.

And here's video at GOothamSchools, pledging to replace Klein as Schools Chancellor.

Bill de Blasio is offering a very well developed plan to involve parents and to dilute Bloomberg's efforts to absolutely shut out parents. He is calling to reform mayoral control.
Click here to his campaign's website page: "20 Reasons in 20 Days".
Click here for his overview statement at "Huffington Post."

John Liu and David Weprin are pledging to extend sunshine (openness, "transparency") to the Department of Education budget.
Weprin has pledged to audit the Department of Education. I am endorsing Weprin.
