Help to Get Out the Vote for the General Election on November 8
PSC members made thousands of calls to help pro-CUNY, pro-labor candidates win in the primaries. We will do thousands more calls and take part in labor walks to win the White House and reshape the State legislature. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who made calls, did labor walks and otherwise contributed to these victories. Phone banks are scheduled every Wednesday evening between now and the November 8 General Election and other GOTV opportunities are soon to be announced. PSC members can sign up here.
NYS Legislative Primary Results
Thanks to boots-on-the-ground support from PSC members and our colleagues at NYSUT, K-16 public education allies in the state legislature like Senator Gustavo Rivera and Assembly Members Pam Harris and Latrice Walker won their primaries in September. The victories came despite the incumbents being outspent 6:1 by New York’s pro-school-voucher Super PAC. In New York City, NYSUT/PSC-endorsed Senate candidate Robert Jackson narrowly lost in a tight three-way race, earning 29.72 % percent of the vote. Paul Newell, whom we also endorsed, lost the primary to represent Assembly District 65 in lower Manhattan. Click here to see all the primary results.
