There are a few elected officials mentioned in the March 24 editorial “DOE Tunes Out” for their efforts to call out the lack of transparency in the Townsend Harris High School principal search. I wanted to flag that Assemblywoman Nily Rozic is missing from this list. Additionally, so is Congresswoman Grace Meng. The congresswoman joined our office, state Sen. Stavisky, and Council Member Lancman in one of the first letters that went out on Feb.16.
Our office has taken the lead on multiple letters that have gone out since then given that the assemblywoman represents Townsend Harris and is also an alumna.
We would appreciate being engaged on the matter for any future articles and I am happy to brief the respective reporters working this beat.
Assemblywoman Nily Rozic
