The Indivisible Cortland County Anthony Brindisi STRAW POLL is here.
Poll ends Saturday, 3/10/18 at 11:59 p.m.
We are all disgusted with our current Representative in Congress, Claudia Tenney. Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi has publicly announced his intention to challenge Tenney as the Democratic candidate to represent the 22nd District in the upcoming November 2018 election. Tenney and Brindisi are the only identified candidates for this race. Indivisible Cortland County (ICC) has taken a public stand against Tenney, but the decision to endorse a candidate must be a collective one. Please complete this poll by 11:59pm March 12th to have your vote count.
***Only ICC members who are NY CD 22 residents and have completed the full registration process at www.indivisiblecortlandcounty.org/join are eligible to vote.***

Indivisible Cortland County Public Meeting:
In Support of Workers’ Rights
Sunday, March 11, 2 PM
United Presbyterian Church
25 Church St, Cortland, NY 13045
The public is invited to hear a discussion of Labor Relations, Law, and History considering the current Supreme Court case (Janus vs. AFSCME). Conservative groups have been supporting this lawsuit, with the intent to prevent public unions from collecting dues from all the workers they protect, and thus ultimately weaken unions. The case was heard by the United States Supreme Court on February 26 and will likely be decided in the next few months.
Come join us to hear how the erosion of collective bargaining weakens wages and benefits for both union and nonunion workers, causing middle-class income stagnation and increasing inequality, and what we can do in support of workers’ rights.
Speakers include Risa L. Lieberwitz, a professor of Labor and Employment Law in the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR), and Randi Storch, a professor of History and Chair of the History Department at SUNY Cortland.

Lego Bricks Project. The Civil Rights committee of Indivisible of Cortland County could really use some help distributing the Lego brick tableaus in Cortland and Homer. It doesn’t take much time and it’s a great opportunity to engage with the community. If interested, please contact Patty at firstname.lastname@example.org. See also the Lego Bricks Project’s FB page.
