Endorsement Pending

Dear Editor,

In response to the comment in Rockaway Beat that I claimed the UFT endorsement, your source did not get my story straight.

On Thursday, December 28, I arrived late at a meeting on the toxic waste site. I explained that I had an interview with the UFT for a possible endorsement. I felt optimistic because of my commitment to education and being involved for over 30 years on the front lines with educators, parents, and children.

I said that I might get their endorsement, but I never at any time stated that I was the endorsed candidate. I stated that if they endorsed, it would be toward the latter part of January.

I hope that this clears the air and by the time everyone reads this, we know where we stand.

LEW M. SIMON
