Statement from UUP President Frederick E. Kowal on
Assembly member-elect Monica Wallace



“UUP is proud to congratulate one of our own, Monica Wallace, for winning the 143rd Assembly District seat. UUP members in the Buffalo area worked hard to help Monica, a faculty member at the University at Buffalo Law School, to victory.

“As a graduate of Binghamton University and the UB Law School, Monica knows the importance and necessity of providing a quality, affordable public education to all New Yorkers. We are certain that Monica will make public education a high priority as a member of the state Assembly.

“We look forward to working with Monica to refocus SUNY on its academic mission and our drive to increase the state’s budgetary investment in the State University of New York.”

UUP is the nation's largest higher education union, with more than 42,000 academic and professional faculty and retirees. UUP members work at 29 New York state-operated campuses, including SUNY’s public teaching hospitals and health science centers in Brooklyn, Long Island and Syracuse. It is an affiliate of NYSUT, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association, and the AFL-CIO.
