Our Community - if we don’t fight for it, who will?

We live in a wonderful community of families and small businesses. But we live with decisions made by faraway power brokers who are not listening - decisions that affect the quality of our lives and the future of our community.

Decisions such as a proposed homeless shelter – where a thousand children walk, every day, to and from three nearby schools.  Moving “community jails” into our neighborhood. Not replacing aging and leaking sewers and pipelines that flood raw sewage into our streets and homes.

We want transparency from our elected officials. Respect for our wishes and needs. Decisions based on the best interests of our families, children, elderly, local businesses, and local public safety officials.

City Hall and Albany may not be listening. But I am.

Take Action

Though the general perception is that campaigns value money before volunteers, that is 1) categorically untrue, and 2) at state and local levels, egregiously untrue. (Still, your donation matters a lot, so please make a donation!) Our campaign - like most at state and municipal levels - is fueled by high-octane volunteers. Office tasks, research, social media, voter contact, making calls, and voting are the life-blood activities of all successful campaigns. And as we intend to be successful, we need you. Here's what you can do:

First,  Register To Vote If you aren't registered, do that right now.

The requirements are:

  • Be a U.S. citizen;
  • Be 18 years old by the end of this year;
  • Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction; and
  • Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.
