1) On October 23, an evening for Kristen McElroy at my home.
A criminal defense attorney and former Nassau County Prosecutor,Kristen is challenging State Sen. Kemp Hannon (R-Garden City) and is given a strong chance of overthrowing this 19 year incumbent who has consistently blocked the progressive Democratic agenda at the state level. Kristen, a life-long resident of Nassau is raising her children in Garden City and knows how hard it has become to raise a family in Long Island and throughout New York, with rising property taxes, soaring fuel prices and rapid increases in healthcare and prescription drug costs.
2) On October 29, the West Side is celebrating Eric Schneiderman.
Serving 10 years in the State Senate, one of Eric's many accomplishments is a multi-year project to win the State Senate back for the Democrats. With your help, this could be THE year! There may be issues where I do not agree with Eric, but I cannot recall any.
Both Kristen and Eric were strong supporters of Hillary Clinton's candidacy for President.
