We’d like to remind Rep. Cecil Brockman that he publicly supported these 5 NCAE priority issues on May 1st:
-Provide $15 minimum wage for all school personnel, 5% raise for all ESPs (non-certified staff), teachers, admin, and a 5% cost of living adjustment for retirees
-Provide enough school librarians, psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, and other health professionals to meet national standards
-Expand Medicaid to improve the health of our students and families
-Reinstate state retiree health benefits eliminated by the General Assembly in 2017
-Restore advanced degree compensation stripped by the General Assembly in 2013
The current state budget does NONE of these things. Gov. Cooper vetoed that budget and offered a compromise that provides much better funding for public schools, our employees, as well as expanding Medicaid.
Rep. Brockman pledged his support. Real support means he needs to UPHOLD the VETO.
Tell Rep. Brockman to uphold Gov. Cooper’s veto. Fund public schools. Expand Medicaid.
