Interesting questions: • If a teacher tests positive for COVID-19 are they required to quarantine for 2-3 weeks? Is their sick leave covered, paid? • If that teacher has 5 classes a day with 30 students each, do all 150 of those students need to then stay homes and quarantine for 14 days? • Do all 150 of those students now have to get tested? Who pays for those tests? Are they happening at school? How are the parents being notified? Does everyone in each of those kids' families need to get tested? Who pays for that? • What if someone who lives in the same house as a teacher tests positive? Does that teacher now need to take 14 days off of work to quarantine? Is that time off covered? Paid? • Where is the district going to find a substitute teacher who will work in a classroom full of exposed, possibly infected students for substitute pay? • Substitutes teach in multiple schools. What if they are diagnosed with COVID-19? Do all the kids in each school now quarantine and get test? Who is going to pay for that? • What if a student in your kid's class tests positive? What if your kid tests positive? Does every other student and teacher they have been around quarantine? Do we all get notified who is infected and when? Or because of HIPAA regulations are parents and teachers just going to get mysterious “may have been in contact” emails all year long? • What is this stress going to do to our teachers? How does it affect their health and well-being? How does it affect their ability to teach? How does it affect the quality of education they are able to provide? What is it going to do to our kids? What are the long-term effects of consistently being terrified? • How will it affect students and faculty when the first teacher in their school dies from this? The first parent of a student who brought it home? The first kid? • How many more people are going to die, that otherwise would not have if we had stayed home longer?” We have questions.
one more day to vote for Melanie D'Arrigo who will stand up for your rights, healthcare and other priorities
Rep. Tom Suozzi Misleads Long Island Voters on Key Endorsements Gun Safety Groups Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety State that Suozzi Campaign Falsely Claims Their Endorsements in NY3 Race. Rep. Tom Suozzi has been repeatedly touting false endorsements from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund to tens of thousands of voters across the district in both mail and digital media ahead of the June 23rd New York primary. In a statement posted June 19th to their page and echoed by their founder Shannon Watts on Twitter, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America clarified its endorsements in the Congressional race in New York’s 3rd District. “As the New York Primary approaches, Moms Demand Action hopes that you are all making a plan to vote! We want to clarify that neither Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America or Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund has made any endorsements in the U.S. House race for New York's 3rd Congressional District. Both candidates, Melanie D'Arrigo and Tom Suozzi, have received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction. We applaud both candidates for their commitment to gun safety!,” the statement reads. “I am a Moms Demand Action volunteer and am committed to fighting gun violence. I feel honored to be a gun sense distinction candidate because I know firsthand the organizing work Moms Demand Action puts in to make our communities safe. I don't know why the Congressman decided to mislead voters by touting endorsements he did not receive. It's bizarre.” said NY-3 Congressional Candidate Melanie D'Arrigo. “We are very proud of all of our endorsements both from large national organizations like Indivisible and the National Organization for Women to local grassroots groups like Long Island Activists, Muslims for Progress, No IDC, LINC and Sunrise Movement Huntington. Endorsements are a reflection of the trust built between the candidates and organizations and the faith they have in a candidate to champion their causes. While some endorsements may be no more than rubber stamps, others from groups that actually organize on behalf of their communities, are to me, more meaningful. It’s disrespectful to the organizations and their work to break that trust.” ABOUT MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA: Founded by Shannon Watts in the days after the Sandy Hook shooting, Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership. We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe. ### www.darrigo2020.com
If applauding Trump the day after his impeachment isn't what you'd want your Congressman to do, maybe you should vote for a better democrat in the June 23rd primary. There's a better alternative to Rep. Suozzi Vote for Melanie D'Arrigo on June 23. https://www.darrigo2020.com/
