We MUST contact our legislators and urge them to attend the joint Legislative session on Tuesday, March 11 where four Regent board members will be selected.  Please ASK YOUR LEGISLATORS TO VOTE NO to any incumbent who is re-nominated (Cea, Cottrell, Jackson, and Norwood).  We must not allow the incumbents to be appointed for another term.


Please take the time to email and call your Assembly Member and Senator and ask that they DO NOT re-appoint any of the incumbent Regent members.  You will find a sample email/call script below.

Please ask your Assembly member and Senator how they will vote and let NYSAPE know at nys.allies@gmail.com to record on its scorecard.

Dear [Name of Legislator]    :

On Tuesday, March 11, at a joint legislative session, you will be asked to vote for four Regent board members.  I ask that you please attend this session on behalf of your constituents and vote NO to any incumbent that is re-nominated (Cea, Cottrell, Jackson, and Norwood).

Parents across New York State have expressed outrage at the Board of Regents’ failure to respond to the concerns of both parents and educators.  The incumbent Regent candidates have failed to take action to amend current policies or speak out against them.

Thank you for representing the people of New York State.
