Kicking May off right

From Crain's Insider, WFP plans to pound pavement (no link):
"To push its 'Fair Share for Health Care' bill, the Working Families Party will soon go door-to-door in the state Senate districts of Republicans Tom Morahan, Caesar Trunzo, Mike Balboni, Carl Marcellino, and Dean Skelos to pressure them to vote in favor. Later, WFP staff, volunteers and paid college students will hit the districts of John Flanagan and Ken LaValle. In June, the advocates will blitz Syracuse, lobbying the constituents of John DeFrancisco and Democrat Dave Valesky. The bill, requiring most firms with more than 100 workers to pay for health insurance for their employees, is opposed by the Business Council of New York State and other business interests."
Our thanks go out to everyone who made a donation in April to give us the resources to kick May off right.
