Last week the MAGA movement swept school board elections for Smithtown Central School District, Long Island, NY.
CDMedia spoke with Shawn Farash of the Loud Majority movement, a group that has been vocal in this conservative part of New York state since before the 2020 election, staging frequent rallies for the MAGA agenda.
"We were approached by concerned parents of the school district to help weed out corruption," said Farash. "There had been multiple FARA requests and we found the administration was tied to the NY teacher's union, and was pushing the 1619 project.
"We put up 3 candidates for the seats that were open; we only had 3-4 weeks to campaign. We swept all three positions. There was a record turnout -- 8,500 vs the usual 3,000.
"Most of Long Island is controlled by the GOP Establishment. Where their candidates ran, they were annihilated. However, in Smithtown, Valley Stream, and Massapequa, MAGA prevailed.
"The grassroots effort worked very well. We are not done! There is a lot going on in Suffolk County with school administrators, money, and so on, with junkets to conferences, etc. We want to shine light on this corruption.
"We are already planning for the next election cycle in the coming year. We want to find candidates now and move to control the school board in Smithtown and elsewhere in the region.
