NYSUT Candidate Pipeline 2.0: We Want YOU!

Source: NYSUT Legislation
nysut candidate pipeline 2.0

The world would be a better place if you ran for office!

One of the clearest lessons of the 2018 elections was that when more good people run for office, more good people are elected.

Simple as that!

And that's the idea behind the NYSUT Candidate Pipeline for our members.

The 2018 election results demonstrate the power of the Pipeline! One NYSUT Pipeline candidate won as an underdog in a key State Senate district, helping create a decisive pro-education majority in the Senate! Two other Pipeline candidates (one a challenger and the other an incumbent), won in the State Assembly, and four other Pipeline candidates won local office across the state.

From your local school board to city hall to Albany and beyond, you can make a difference by running for office!
