Today it was announced that Nikki Lucas the City Council candidate in the 42nd District, covering East New York, Brownsville, Canarsie and East Flatbush, has been endorsed by CSA.
The CSA is the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators representing 6,100 NYC Principals, Assistant Principals, Supervisors and Education Administrators who work in the NYC public schools and 200 Directors and Assistant Directors who work in city-subsidized Centers for Early Childhood Education (ECE).
This endorsement gives Lucas the support of both education unions, the UFT which represents New York City Public School Teachers and now CSA, which represents NYC Public School Principals.
“I am once again humbled by another powerful endorsement. After receiving the endorsement from the UFT which represents the NYC teachers and now to receive the CSA endorsement, which represents NYC Principals, it shows that the hard work and planning that we have been putting into education is paying off with recognition from these two important education unions”, stated Lucas.
Lucas added, “this brings us one step closer to realizing the Education part of our 21st Century Rescue Plan for East Brooklyn. In order to invest in the education and properly support the students and parents in our district there must be a collaborative effort amongst the teachers, principals, parents, students, elected officials and community-based organizations. This is the start of that incredible partnership that we will be putting together for the district.”
