On November 6th, who do you think should pick your elected representative? Should the choice be left to shady, out-of-state groups with undisclosed supporters spending millions promoting falsehoods and deceitful half-truths? Or should you, the voter, decide after an informed and transparent discussion of the important issues facing New Yorkers today?
For several months now, a mysterious organization based in Northern Virginia and affiliated with the Swift Boat Veterans has been spending large undisclosed sums of money on races here in Queens, Westchester and Rochester. The Senate GOP disavows any knowledge of what’s going on but today’s New York Times raises serious questions about those claims. It’s no surprise they’ve repeatedly blocked Governor Cuomo’s efforts to enact meaningful campaign finance reform.
It’s up to you to ensure that these Republican dirty tricks don’t drown out your voice. Can you support our efforts to build a Democratic Majority in the State Senate with a contribution today of $5, $25, $100 or more?
With your help, strong independent leaders like Senator Joe Addabbo, Assemblymember George Latimer and County Legislator Ted O’Brien will go to Albany next year and fight for you. They’ll fight for a New York where men and women receive a fair and equal wage for an honest day’s work; a New York that protects the middle class while promoting job creation; a New York where we safeguard the water we drink for future generations; a New York where a woman’s personal healthcare decisions remain her own; and yes, a New York where the promise of our electoral system is restored and the choice is put back into your hands!
Please support us in this effort and together, we will show these outsiders what New York is all about!
