On the campaign trail

New York Teacher

And now, our esteemed mayor, Bill de Blasio, is running for president of the United States! I remember when he was public advocate, during the Bloomberg administration. A group of District 21 teachers, including myself, made an appointment to see him. Our agenda topics were teacher harassment, age discrimination and Bloomberg’s anti-teacher “Chancellor’s Regulations.”

Guess what? De Blasio never showed up for the meeting! As mayor he has never attempted to resolve these issues, nor the corruption in the city Department of Education. So never mind the rest of the country; put your own house in order first.
