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.

Click here to send $5 or more directly to Bill’s campaign – Election Day is coming fast and we don’t want to miss this opportunity to elect a public school champion:

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
