“All Politics is Local” – Tip O’Neill
July 18, 2017
Dear Fellow Democrats,
Thank you – for coming out this past Friday and voting to endorse the Gardiner Democratic Committee’s candidates. Because of your enthusiastic participation, Lisa Lindsley won the caucus vote 105-46 against her challenger, Marybeth Majestic. Lisa will appear on the Democratic line on November’s ballot as well as on the Working Families Party Line, the Women’s Equality Line and is endorsed by the Hudson Valley Labor Federation.
You also voted by acclimation to endorse David Dukler and Warren Wiegand for Town Board, Bob Rich for Town Justice, Michelle Mosher for Town Clerk and Brian Stiscia for Highway Superintendent. Friday’s caucus was a display of democracy at its best at the local level. Tracey Bartels is our candidate for County Legislator. Again, thank you!
We Democrats face a very tough local election in November and we are writing to ask for your financial help. Elections are expensive. The committee supports its candidates with ads, mailers, signs, events and printed handouts to encourage voters to come out and exercise their right to choose their representatives – a right that is being severely compromised on the federal level. Please help us elect candidates right here in Gardiner who reflect Democratic values. Whether the issue is town finance, taxes, the parks, open space or development, whom you elect will determine what laws are enacted on our behalf and what our town looks like now and well into the future. But we can’t do it without your financial support. We have great candidates – lets get them over the finish line!
A donation in any amount would help, but please be as generous as you can. Please use the DONATE button on our website to contribute. Or send a check payable to the Gardiner Democratic Committee to PO Box 145, Gardiner NY 12525.
