GNTA's eight delegates strongly supported Iannuzzi and his team believing that their experience and accomplishments in these extremely difficult times had earned our continued trust. GNTA President Sheila Scimone said that "Since January, the GNTA delegation has conscientiously examined the positions of both slates of candidates and unanimously supported Iannuzzi's ‘Stronger Together’ team. I'm deeply disappointed to lose the experience, integrity, and grace of Dick Iannuzzi, Maria Neira, Kathleen Donahue, and Lee Cutler. However, it's imperative that we not allow the unity of NYSUT to be compromised even for a second, so GNTA is committed to working collaboratively with our new officers from today forward."
GNTA congratulates NYSUT's new leadership: President Karen Magee, Executive Vice President Andrew Pallotta, 1st Vice President Catalina R. Fortino, 2nd Vice President Paul Pecorale, and Secretary-Treasurer Martin Messner.
