I received this invitation from the Petitioners to the Recall of Rep. Raymond Garofalo.
WHAT: Recall Rep. Raymond E. "Ray" Garofalo
HOW: By educating ourselves and our community with the truth about what is happening to public education at the hands of Governor Jindal and the Louisiana Legislature, and collecting 9,858 signatures of registered voters in District 103 to submit to the LA Secretary of State's Office by December 23, 2012.
WHY: We are recalling Rep. Garofalo based on his freshman legislative voting record which rubber-stamped Governor Jindal's destructive anti-public education agenda at all costs, regardless of the wishes or interests of his constitutents. Mr. Garofalo has also initiated bills in which he has a clear personal conflict of interest and has neglected to address issues of extreme importance to his constituents in St. Bernard, East Bank Plaquemines, and New Orleans East.
WHEN: Saturday, July 14 - Bastille Day - at Torres Park from 9:30-12:00
Teachers and Public Education Supporters in St. Bernard are asked to wear RED, White & Blue - in observance of American Independence Day and French Bastille Day.
PLEASE DO PLAY UP THE RED BECAUSE MR. GAROFALO SOMEHOW MISSED THOUSANDS OF PROTESTING TEACHERS CLAD IN RED AT THE STATE CAPITOL DURING THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.
Dr. Mercedes Schneider of St. Tammany wil appear to speak about the Jindal Recall which we are also supporting.
