Contact Your Elected Representatives
The PA strongly believes that public education forms the backbone of our nation and must be protected and preserved. Therefore, we encourage our members to contact their elected representatives on the local, state, and national levels and to voice their concerns about the many issues affecting public education, higher education, and community colleges.
The New York State United Teachers website offers a Legislative Action page at which NYSUT members can fax or email their state or federal legislators: Legislative Action. Using an online form, you can look up your Senator or Assemblyperson/Congressperson as well as select from a number of messages to edit and send. Please use this NYSUT feature to remind your state and federal representatives of the issues that affect our daily lives as employees in a public institution of higher education.
This is the contact information for Oneida County Representatives:
The Honorable Anthony J. Picente Jr.
Oneida County Executive
Oneida County Office Building
800 Park Avenue
Utica, NY 13501
