“As the Senate debates standardized testing, state funding to our public schools and colleges and countless other important education issues, we believe that the voice and experience of a classroom teacher in that chamber would be invaluable for all New Yorkers,” Pallotta said. “John Mannion is a dedicated and tireless leader who is knowledgeable and passionate about public education, and will do a tremendous job representing his Central New York district.”
John's commitment to representing our police officers, prison guards, nurses, and teachers along with his devotion to our local communities makes him an ideal candidate.
