Received this e-mail today from the great Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Bill de Blasio's (D) campaign to become the next Mayor of New York City:
We have the chance to help New York City do something that has not happened in two decades – elect a Democratic mayor.

Bill de Blasio shares our values and our vision. He is a true progressive champion.

Central to Bill’s platform is universal pre-kindergarten. As a parent of children in New York City’s public schools, he has seen we can and must do more.

You know what they say – if you can make it in New York, you’ll make it anywhere. Launching universal pre-kindergarten in such a large, diverse city will set an example the nation can follow.

With Election Day just 44 days away, let’s make sure Bill has the resources he needs to win – not just for New York City parents, but for parents everywhere.

Join me in helping Bill move us forward on education and so much more.

Public schools around the country are at a tipping point.

Bill de Blasio believes that every student deserves the chance to succeed – right from the starting gate. He’s stood up for struggling schools and for students with disabilities, while fighting to get parents more involved.

We all need to get behind Bill today.
