Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke), a member of the Assembly Education Committee, has fulfilled the requirements to have his name placed on November’s ballot under the “Stop Common Core” line. McLaughlin believes winning the line is an example of his campaign’s tremendous grassroots support.
“Don’t believe all the hype around this being a ‘vanity line,’” McLaughlin said. “Parents across this state are angry, and parents right here in the Capital Region are angry, and they’ve had enough of their children being subjected to this social experiment known as Common Core. People like Phil Malone and Andrew Cuomo ignore this line because they haven’t spoken to parents affected by this damaging curriculum.”
Assemblyman McLaughlin continued, “I would like to personally thank every single concerned parent, grandparent, guardian and citizen who helped our petition process. It is your concern for our children’s future that will ensure that we withdraw from Common Core and return control of New York’s education system to our local communities.” McLaughlin is the father of two school aged children and his wife, Maggie, is a teacher in Lansingburgh.
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer,
Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,
