2/ NJ Legislature reps huge to our schools because they can advocate at state level for proper funding of our schools, including a) forcing accountability of city (e.g. PILOT reform) & b) allowing for new revenue mechanisms (e.g. payroll tax directed to school coffers)
3/ Some of our NJ reps on twitter here:
District 31: @AswMcKnight @NicholasNJ31
District 33: @RajMukherji
Are any other D state reps on twitter that I'm missing here? @Amy_DeGise @NJ08forProgress
4/ And here's why Council reps are important: If state authorizes use of Payroll Tax to fund Public Schools (incl Charters as bill is now written), then Council must pass Payroll Tax ordinance locally. That's not a slam dunk-deep pockets in JC would end up funding this tax
5/ Most of our council reps are on twitter.
Ward A @DeniseRidleyJC
Ward B @miramira4
Ward C #Boggiano
Ward D @CouncilmanYun
Ward E @SolomonforJC
Ward F @Jermaine4WardF
At Large (3 of them cover entire city) - @RLavarro @JCCALDR @Pastorjoice
6/ Much more to come! Stay tuned. Tomorrow is last day of school but fight for fair & sustainable funding continues & if anything picks up over summer. Good night!
7/ PS. TY to @peterkimnyc who sent me to @uscensusbureau site w legislative KML files-made this easy lift 2 import. *AND* would love help modifying KML files 2 include rep info like names & contact info...TYIA! cc @codeforjc @stevenspinello
