A New Year of Change: My first picks for NY Senate

Tomorrow, January 12, is a critical first fundraising deadline. I’m publishing this unfinished blog post early to make my positions known and to encourage you do as I have done: show your support by contributing to the campaigns of Zellnor Myrie and Ross Barkan. Any amount will help send a message that 2018 is indeed a New Year of Change. Please contribute by the end of day January 12.

  • Ross Barkan faces incumbent Marty Golden, a Trump Republican. Need I say more about Marty? Ross, a muckraking journalist, is in my opinion the best candidate to represent NYS-22 to the south, which encompasses Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, and Marine Park. Ross is “an award-winning journalist and writer recognized for his bold reporting and incisive commentary on New York’s spineless political class. As a columnist for the Village Voice and the Guardian, and as a contributor to many other leading publications, Ross has been unafraid to take on the powerful interests trying to screw over working class New Yorkers. He is running as a Democrat for State Senate to fix our transportation, healthcare, and stand up for homeowners and tenants against greedy real estate developers.”
