Huffington Post Op-Ed: Beyond the Occupation

By State Senator Daniel Squadron and Assemblyman Rory Lancman

Much has been made of the lack of specific demands of the Occupy Wall Street protesters.   But the themes underlying the protests are clear: accountability on Wall Street for the financial crisis that tanked the global economy; shared sacrifice as we pull ourselves out of an economic mess that the middle class and working poor didn't create; and a political system controlled by people, not corporations.

Rally Against Education Layoffs

Senator Serrano joined District Council 37 on the steps of City Hall for a rally against massive layoffs that would have a negative impact on our local schools. 705 layoffs of Local 372 members have been scheduled for next week, and  765 layoffs occurred at The Department of Education on October 7, 2011. "It is extremely unfortunate that these layoffs are being planned for a district that can’t afford to lose more staff", said Senator Serrano. "Not only will 705 people be unemployed, but our schools will suffer the consequences of losing dedicated parent coordinators and school aides. We must do everything we can to speak out against an action that threatens the quality of our children’s education.”

Senator Krueger's Community Bulletin: August 2011

Message from Liz . . .

Once again our leaders in Washington are fighting over cuts to the deficit, while our economy teeters on the brink of a "double dip" recession. At the federal, state, and local levels, the focus is on cutting programs rather than increasing revenues. But what many of these leaders have chosen to ignore is the fact that this strategy will have radical macro and micro economic and political consequences for decades to come.
