Richie To Perform Anti “Common Core” Song Inside NYS Capital!
I have to say this is going to be a thrill - singing one of my songs right inside the Capital building. It's all part of an Anti "Common Core" rally this Tuesday.
Here's what's going down on Tuesday in the Well of the Legislative Office Building at 11am.
"Parent Groups to Attend Albany Lobby Day; Demand NYS Withdraws from Common Core Standards"
They are calling this Common Sense Education Lobby Day, and they ail have guest speakers along with assemblymen Ed Ra, Al Graf and Senator Lee Zeldin who have sponsored legislation to stop Common Core in NYS.
There is a press conference at 10 am in Room 130 before the event.
I have agreed to come down and perform my song "Cure for the Common Core" for a bit of comic relief. Hopefully we will have video of this so you can either watch these people laugh or throw locally grown produce at me. Either way, I am looking forward to it!
