Hi Michael, as you said Bill Deblasio's press conferences are confusing, add on Cuomo has become trump like with his attacks on any reporter that asks challenging questions, and at this point we get more information from you (mulgrew) on WNYC than email or official UFT communications.
Needless to say this has led my friends that are teachers, paras, counselors, all UFT members to be angry, upset, demoralized, people are really feeling demoralized!
-We are not in your inner circle that you mentioned earlier, so we dont know what's happening. We don't understand what's going on. If I was in your inner circle, and was giving you advice, which I know you dont want from me, I would have suggested a press conference with the same medical experts and scientists you had back before school opened. I thought that was great, so did my members. You had actual experts explaining the plan based on science, right now we haven't had anything like that. I'm on the executive board and I still dont know what's going on.
Right now I can't tell you why we have done this. There's a reason we haven't come out and explained everything, but now is not the time to say it. You got more information tonight than anyone and it's coming to the members. We have emails to the members on the way. Deblasio doesnt explain anything well, he needs to go to teacher school to learn how to do this like we do. We will get that information out to the members
