Listener Candidate for the WBAI Local Station Board
My name is Priscilla Cancar, a recent graduate of the Teachers College Columbia University, and contractor for numerous edTech companies developing tools to support teachers and students. Recently working on a local city council campaign I supported the campaign's digital presence as digital director through the use of social media, website development, and organizing voter data using excel. Furthermore, this work has taught me how to hear the concerns of the local community as well as the serious impact of privatization of public and community resources.

I endorse and encourage everyone to also vote for the following candidates:
Ms Scottye Battle, Stephanie Byers, Benjamin Garron-Caine, James Dingeman, John Hoffmann, Katherine O’Sullivan, Matthew Reiss
Michael White, M. Kay Williams, Bruce Grief, Joseph Graziose, Philip DePaolo, James Dingeman, John Hoffmann, Katherine O’Sullivan, Matthew Reiss, Michael White, M. Kay Williams
