Dear Gregg, if I may,

We have known each other for quite some time, and I was delighted in my new position to be reminded of your enduring commitments—to students, to great journalism, and to causes that matter in the workplace. I see that you had written the Chancellery about your petition to support the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill, and that you are calling for CUNY to be a “leader in promoting healthy workplaces.” From my new position in the Central Office, I am very pleased to assure that CUNY is already a strong advocate for safe workplaces and has put policies, procedures (e.g., requiring annual workplace violence training for all CUNY employees, Workplace Violence Prevention Training Administrators at all CUNY campuses and the central office) and resources, (eg and) in place to ensure that CUNY is a safe environment for its students and employees.

Gregg, please know that we take the matter of safe workplaces very seriously, in practice and spirit as well as in policy, as I know you do. I wish you every success always.

Cory Booker, U.S. Senator from New Jersey, has, according to a Facebook post, inadvertently impugned the ethos of the department that you chair. I thought you should know. Don’t hesitate to pass the word.

After 12 years as the longest-serving and most powerful police commissioner in New York City history, Kelly feels he is departing One Police Plaza misunderstood and unloved. Read full article here.

The email I sent to NYS Senator John DeFrancisco, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, is better than the previous one sent to several senators on the Labor Committee of the New York State Senate. It’s more accurate.

Dear Senator John DeFrancisco, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee,

I am a tenured assistant journalism professor at Hunter College and I am writing to ask you to put S3863 on the Senate Finance Committee agenda before the legislative session ends. The workplace bullying that I have witnessed and experienced at Hunter is the most profane in my journalism career as a reporter and teacher.
