RE: Request from Regent Tilles
Jim Kinnier, president of the Teachers Association of Sag Harbor, asked us to transmit the following message to all local presidents:
I spoke with Roger Tilles yesterday regarding another matter, and at the end he asked if this would be communicated to all Presidents and then, in turn, to all their members. We were asked to communicate to him our thanks for how he has stood up for public education. Although he very much appreciates the expression of goodwill, the response has been overwhelming. He replies to all his communication and does not have a secretary. He has heard our message of appreciation and is politely asking us to refrain from sending these messages. Please pass this message on to your members.
He described all that he is doing on behalf of public education and it's very impressive. The high opinion we have of him is more than deserved.
