Reform Sasscer Movement has received reports that, SB 867 – the Prince George’s artificial turf bill has passed the Senate 44-2 and is now in the House Appropriations committee.  There was one amendment – limiting POS funds to 50% of PG allotment.  The House version of the bill has not passed the full delegation.

We suggest you call your delegates along with writing emails and ask them to vote “NO’ because of the healthy issues associated with synthetic Turf.  Here is a link to all Prince George’s County house delegation.

Rebranding of Prince George’s through Vote 2014.

Vote “No” to Question J and H

Mr. Baker (pictured above) is wrong on multiple fronts and for advocating for wrong choices for the people.

Since 2011, Reform Sasscer Movement has set out with an ambitious goal in mind — to democratize publishing and put state-of-the-art tools in front of media houses both large and small across the planet to transform Prince George’s County government. We believe strongly in this vision because when more people have access to powerful tools on the web, that in-turn empowers them to do great things and in turn, helps change our county and the world through an amazing content.

We feel the same way when it comes to democratizing every county in the world using our model. Well, in every true democracy, a time comes for an election — and in just a few days , citizens across the United States will have a unique opportunity to flex their political muscle and vote in the 2014 Midterm Elections.

Voting is our most fundamental responsibility as citizens — without it, our American democracy wouldn’t exist. Reform Sasscer Movement is a platform that gives everyday people the ability to share their voice and inform the public. We are asking you to take advantage of this voice and information — by exercising your right to vote. When you vote, vote against Question J and H in Prince George’s County. These Questions are disservice to Prince Georgians. >>> >>> Read more > Vote against longer term limits, fewer papers of record in Prince George’s.

We’re asking you for your help to spread the word, encourage participation and get out the vote on November 4th, 2014.

If you have any questions, please channel them through the comment section and we’ll be sure to help wherever we can. Thanks!

2014 Elections.

The boss who decides how you are evaluated, the amount of planning time you have, and how much you are paid—as well as nearly every other condition of your profession—is probably not a seasoned veteran of public education.

Your boss, actually your bosses, are the local, county, and state politicians who win on Election Day—no education experience required— they get the job! So, like it or not, your job as a teacher, School Bus driver, Custodian, Administrator, payroll clerk, specialist etc.  is indeed very political because your bosses are politicians. They don’t have to have an education degree, pedagogical training, or any exposure to the complex inner workings of a school building, yet they set your pension, determine class size, fund your contract, mandate student testing, and appoint the people who decide your evaluations.

Education workers are special. Because our bosses are politicians, our struggle as Reform Sasscer Movement members isn’t only at the worksite, it’s at the voting booth this year. While some might see this as a curse, it’s really a blessing—we get to hire our bosses by choosing them on Election Day. This  year, we need to push for those leaders who are credible in order to create an accountable government which is responsive to the people.

Over the last few election cycles, Reform Sasscer Movement members have stepped up in big ways and pro-education candidates with Reform Sasscer Movement’s endorsement have won more than 80% of their campaigns.

With the 2014 primary elections on the horizon this June and general election in November, it’s time to work together to elect the bosses we need to help our schools, communities and students succeed. Send an email to reformpgcps@gmail.com to find out how you can help win the 2014 elections that matter most to public education in Maryland. This is the only way we are going to take back our schools and help with innovation in Maryland.
