Our second round of endorsements in the 2018 primaries

NYC Kids PAC is endorsing Letitia James  for Attorney General, Jumaane Williams for Lieutenant Governor, Blake Morris for Senate District 17 and Ross Barkan for Senate District 22.

This is to add to our earlier endorsements of Jessica Ramos for Senate District 13,  Julia Salazar for Senate District 18,  Zellnor Myrle  for Senate District 20,  Robert Jackson for Senate District 31 and Catalina Cruz for Assembly District 39.

All these candidates had excellent responses to our candidate surveys, and records of supporting our public schools and the improving the quality of education in NYC.

Our most difficult decision was the Attorney General endorsement, because we strongly believe both Zephyr Teachout and Tish James would make great AGs, and both candidates have deep understanding as to how to strengthen our public schools.

Yet we decided to endorse Tish James because she has always stood up on behalf of NYC parents and joined with them in fighting for their kids’ right to a quality education and a voice in education decision-making, and to force the Mayor and DOE to be more accountable and transparent.

The Democratic primary will be held September 13.  Remember to vote!
