VOTE TODAY: Thursday Sept. 13th Primary Day
REMEMBER TO VOTE TODAY!
Thursday Sept. 13th is Primary Election Day
Here are some recommendations from District Leader Chris Owens, my district leader:
NORTHWEST BROOKLYN (Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Dumbo, Fort Greene):
Elect Richard Montelione to the Kings County Civil Court. Richard is the only candidate with 28 years of legal experience as a practicing attorney and as a leader in the legal community. He has been found "Exceptionally Well Qualified" by four judicial panels, "Qualified" by numerous judicial panels and The New York Times, endorsed by the NY Amsterdam News, and Richard is supported by every "reform" Democratic political organization in Brooklyn (CBID, IND, LID, NKD).
The word is out that Richard Montelione is the best judicial candidate this year! Who shares that view? Major Owens, Jo Anne Simon, Lincoln Restler, Velmanette Montgomery, Joan Millman, Jim Brennan, Letitia James, Deborah Glick, Danny Dromm and many more.
Richard's opponent, law clerk Lara Genovesi, is a competent and qualified candidate. We need the BEST judges, however, not merely "decent" judges. Ms. Genovesi can run again in the future. In this contest, Richard Montelione is the superior candidate and needs your vote.
52nd ASSEMBLY DISTRICT (Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Downtown Brooklyn, DUMBO, Park Slope, Prospect Heights): Please re-elect my co-leader and friend, Jo Anne Simon to the Democratic State Committee. Jo Anne is not only a seasoned and wise District Leader, she is an accomplished education attorney and could be Brooklyn's first female Democratic County Leader.
50th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT (Greenpoint, Williamsburg): Please re-elect Lincoln Restler, one of Brooklyn's hardest hustling "reformers," to the Democratic State Committee ("District Leader"). Lincoln works to represent every person in his very diverse and changing district. The bottom line is this: Vito Lopez is gunning for Lincoln and we can't let this scandal-plagued County Leader take out a champion of change. In 2010, Lincoln's election was so close, it took multiple recounts to decide the victor!
56th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT (Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights): Please elect Robert Kornegy to the Democratic State Committee. Robert is a good man with an open mind and a desire to see positive change in the Democratic Party.
57th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT (Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Prospect Heights): Please elect Olanike Alabi to the New York State Assembly -- as the successor to Congressman-elect Hakeem Jeffries. Ola, who just received the NY Daily News' endorsement and is also fighting a Vito-supported candidate, has been active in our communities for years and deserves the chance to serve us in Albany. By the way, our polls show that another candidate, Martine Guerrier, has not run a serious campaign and is WAY behind, so please don't waste a vote on her candidacy when we need to stop a Vito incursion here!
Also in the 57th AD, is the female Democratic State Committee contest (Ola gave up this seat to run for Assembly). Please elect Faryce "Fay" Moore, a long-time progressive labor activist to the Democratic State Committee. I need Fay to work with me on the reform agenda.
42nd ASSEMBLY DISTRICT (East Flatbush, Flatbush, Prospect Lefferts-Gardens): Please elect Rodneyse Bichotte to the New York State Assembly. Incumbent Rhoda Jacobs has served this district well for many years and deserves to be succeeded by a dynamic, intelligent and committed woman who happens to be the daughter of Haitian immigrants. A Bichotte victory would be historic -- and helpful -- for Brooklyn!
