Tenney supports measure to keep children safe

I want to thank Congresswoman Claudia Tenney for helping to keep our children safe. After the tragic shootings in Florida and with the recent lockdowns at Utica College and neighboring school districts, I’m glad she cosponsored “The STOP School Violence Act of 2018”.  

This bill authorizes funding for the necessary resources to help our local school districts properly train students, teachers and law enforcement identify and intervene when signs of violence arise.  Facilitating coordination between school districts and law enforcement is vital to keeping our children and teachers/staff safe.  Many politicians just talk about what they’ll do, but Claudia Tenney is actually doing something about it!
