Recently saved FDR High School in Brooklyn last week elected activist Marian Swerdlow as their chapter leader. Congratulations!
We also heard that Brooklyn Tech voted to go in a different direction in their chapter election by electing a new chapter leader by a healthy margin.
Anyone thinking about running for chapter leader this May and June should know it is a difficult job but that we need good people to step up and do it for the right reasons. Building a strong union requires good people to take leadership positions at the chapter level. Chapter leaders will need to be stronger than ever if we are to have any chance of prevailing in these difficult times.
If anyone else has election news, please pass it along.
