There was a rousing rally at City Hall yesterday morning, with parents and elected officials standing up for our kids and against the mayor’s ruthless and devastating cuts.
The actress Kristin Johnston made a great speech, saying that she has had a long love affair with NYC ever since she moved here more than ten years ago, but that these budget cuts threatened to kill that love, and would seriously damage Bloomberg's legacy. “Is this really the message you want to give to the kids? Your education doesn’t matter?" She said that the citizens of NYC would fight back, and win: “I only have two words for you: Cathie Black!” (Photo at right from DNA info of Johnston, in back of the banner made by the activist parents of District 6.)
