Good Day NY Asks Why A Fmr State Legislator Refused To Take Council Oath

Former state legislator Michael Benjamin refused to take an oath during a City Council hearing at City Hall.


I was able to address and defend my decision refusing CM Dromm’s oath and segue into specialized high school issue: preserving the SHSAT, merit and excellence at those schools.


From Twitter:

@CM_RubenWills: @SquarePegDem on Good Day N.Y. has some substantive view points about education. I don’t agree with him all the time but he should be heard

@CM_RubenWills Thanks. Now amend @NYCCouncil rules to protect the public’s right to petition their government w/ swearing an oath.

😉  RT @kwoods100: @rosannascotto well actually @SquarePegDem gets to give his message on TV now so maybe he wins after all.

@sophiequus @PoliticalCrazy Freedom to petition one’s govt w/o impediments is a worthy principle. Now able to make two worthy points.
