NYSUT BACKS HABER FOR STATE SENATE
Long Island Teachers choose Haber to fight for our children’s education
Long Island, NY -- In the biggest endorsement to date, the New York State United
Teachers have endorsed Adam Haber over his opponent for the 7th State Senate
District. Haber, who is an elected member of the Roslyn School Board, has been a
leading voice for education reforms against the failed Common Core and ensuring Long
Island schools get their fair share.
In accepting the endorsement, Adam Haber stated, “It’s a huge honor for me to receive
the support of NYSUT and Long Island’s dedicated teachers. As a local parent, sports
coach and School Board member, I share with these men and women the passion for
empowering our children and giving them the best shot at life. Together, we will work
together to continue to address the misguided Common Core curriculum, ensure Long
Island’s schools are fairly funded and defend our resources against New York City
private charter schools. As State Senator, I will work with parents, teachers and the
community as whole to ensure we have the best schools possible.”
In NYSUT’s announcement, President Karen E. Magee said, “Candidates earning
NYSUT's endorsement this year have shown a willingness to listen to our members in
public schools, colleges and hospitals. They value their relationships with our more than
600,000 politically active and energized members and champion their interests."
