Letters to the Editor: Tireless Advocate

September 22, 2016

As a parent of school-aged children, there’s only one choice for State Assembly this November: re-elect James Skoufis.  James has been a tireless advocate for our students, our schools, and our community – without question, he deserves another term.
 
For years prior to his arrival in the Assembly, school aid was being actively and disproportionately taken away from suburban and upstate schools through something called the Gap Elimination Adjustment.  Thanks to James and like-minded colleagues, the scheme was finally done away with this year despite opposition from New York City lawmakers.
 
When Cornwall’s budget was tight a few years ago and a second grade classroom was set to be cut, James secured the extra funding necessary to save that classroom.
 
When his own party put forward a draconian piece of legislation last year that sought to inject even more high-stakes testing into our teacher’s evaluations, James was one of the few, courageous legislators to vote “no.”
 
Actions always speak louder than words.  James has proven time and time again that he is fighting for our best interests, both here and in Albany.  He deserves our overwhelming support on November 8th – please join me in voting to re-elect Assemblyman James Skoufis.
