Today, we make a decision about New York's future.
Who do we want to run this state? Proven Democratic leaders with decades of experience and bold ideas for making our communities safer, more affordable and more resilient? Or right-wing demagogues riding a wave of fear and disinformation?
For us, the choice is clear: we're voting for Democrats up and down the ballot, and we encourage you to do the same (on the Working Families Party line, if you'd like)!
That means electing Governor Kathy Hochul and Lt. Governor Antonio Delgado to a full term, and sending a clear message that anti-democracy, anti-abortion, pro-gun candidates like Lee Zeldin have no place in this state's leadership.
It also means electing our slate of BYD-endorsed candidates: Iwen Chu for State Senate District 17, Andrew Gounardes for State Senate District 26, and Mathylde Frontus for Assembly District 46. We also encourage voters who live in New York's 11th Congressional District to vote for Max Rose.
And if you're looking for somewhere to watch the results roll in, you've got options!
The New York State Democrats are hosting a bash at Capitale at 130 Bowery in the city. A bit closer to home, our friends at the Independent Neighborhood Democrats have organized a watch party at Park Plaza Diner at 220 Cadman Plaza West.
This is it—the day we've been fighting for. Let's make it one to be proud of!
