As residents of Ulster County, we have an exciting opportunity! We have the opportunity to come together in discussion of Common Core and its impact on our children and our schools and to ask our Ulster County legislature to move Resolution No. 350 in support of ending the implementation of Common Core in New York State.
Please do the following:
- E-mail your Ulster County legislator today with a brief description of why you are concerned about Common Core and ask him/her to support Resolution No. 350 on November 18.
- Adjust your calendar and plan to attend the Ulster County legislative session on November 18, 2014 and speak during public comment or if you can not possibly speak before a group of people, at least be present to lend your support to those who are speaking.
Here is a list of the Ulster County legislators with their contact information to assist you in contacting your county legislator.
