Tax The Rich - Long Island Campaign starts Canvasses
Saturday (2/18) LI DSA comrades started knocking on doors to Tax the Rich. Unsurprisingly, our neighbors in Hempstead were super into it! We found a lot of positive support for the campaign and to follow through on the action. The action in Hempstead this past weekend is send an email (preformed) to their representative Sen. Kevin Thomas.
Taxpayers foot Senator Kevin Thomas annual salary of over a hundred thousand dollars, about median of a for an upper-middle class Long Islander.
Yet he protects the rich from paying their fair share of taxes and preventing funding of better public services on Long Island.
Senator Kevin Thomas has never supported taxing the rich and has expressed more concern for them in meetings with us than his constituents. It's time we change that. Join our next canvass in Kevin Thomas's district, Hempstead, March 5th!
