PAC Hosts Councilman Jumaane Williams At Year-End Meeting
On May 22, the Political Action Committee held its year-end meeting in Founders Hall.
City Councilman Jumaane Williams was present to discuss his work with our members; he answered questions, discussed how important his NYC education has been to his career, and shared why he decided to run for Lieutenant Governor. Yojaira Avalarez, Deputy Director of Outreach and Intergovernmental Affairs at the NYC Civilian Complaint Review Board then offered a brief presentation on the CCRB should our members or their students ever need to call upon the agency for services.
“We regularly ask relevant speakers to come talk with our committee so our members recognize the ways in which their work is interwoven with the government, various city agencies, and the communities they serve,” said Gabe Gallucci, Director of Political Affairs.
The committee received updates on the recent increase in Fair Student Funding, the fight for pay parity for early childhood educators, and the City Council Education Executive Budget Hearing, as well as on the Attorney General race and the upcoming Janus v. AFSCME decision. They reviewed political candidates for Executive Board recommendations and will hold further candidate screenings in June.
