Lydia Howrilka For UFT President
The UFT elections are fast approaching and I have reviewed the candidates of various caucuses and here are my candidates for the various union posts.
President: Lydia Howrilka:of Solidarity Caucus
Lydia Howrilka is a tireless worker and has made the Solidarity caucus relevant and no longer a one man show. She was rubber roomed because she stood up for her rights and was discontinued before winning in Court and received a new position at another school.
By contrast, present UFT President Mickeal Mulgrew is disconnected and arrogant. He rather suck up to the Mayor and the Chancellor than give his members an adequate raise. The MORE candidate does not reflect UFT membership with MORE turning sharply left with it's Socialist/Communist philosophy.
Executive Board: Arthur Goldstein and Micheal Shirtzer UNITY caucus and Johnathan Halabi New Action caucus.
Secretary: Francesco Portelos Solidarity caucus.
Treasurer: James Calantjis Solidarity caucus.
Presently, these are my candidates I will be voting for. As the electron date comes closer, I will be listing more selections as the electron slates are published..
