Saturday, March 19th, 10:30am: Breakfast and Training
12:00pm: RALLY: Fund Our Schools! Raise the Wage!
1:00pm: Neighborhood walks in Kingston to talk with folks about the issues and how they can take action to put Amedore on notice.

On March 19th members from Citizen Action of New York statewide will join with our growing leadership base in the Hudson Valley to put Senator George Amedore (R-Kingston) on notice – it’s time to represent his constituents and do what is best for ALL New Yorkers! How Senator Amedore votes, matters to all of us.

In the coming weeks Senator Amedore, freshman Republican Senator, will prove whether or not he is with the school children and workers of the 46th Senate District or whether he is with his Real Estate and Hedge Fund campaign donors. The budget is due April 1st. Will George Amedore deliver the $126 MILLION the public schools in his district are owed by the state? Will he support raising the minimum wage for all workers to a living wage of $15 by 2021?

Join us to talk to voters and potential voters in the 46th State Senate district and ask them to weigh in now with Senator Amedore to do the right thing.
