Mayor Dawn Zimmer endorses Kids First at Turtle Club

Mayor Zimmer addresses dozens at a packed Turtle Club Sunday afternoon urging active support for the Kids First ticket of 
Jennifer Evans (l), Irene Sobolov and Leon Gold.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer speaks to a crowd Sunday afternoon urging supporters of good government to get out and actively back the Board of Education Kids First ticket.  Kids First has seen the mayor's support since the reform movement's 2009 successes when both were elected.

The Kids First majority has eliminated administrative overhead, faulty contracts and numerous bad practices exposed in audits putting the money back into the classroom for children ever since.

On Saturday, independent candidate Patricia Waiters running for a seat on the BoE backed out of the Better Schools Now ticket telling MSV it will be endorsed by Mayor Zimmer's opponent Ruben Ramos who she does not support for mayor.
