Here is the Press Announcement from the Goldberg campaign:
Public school advocate and mother of two says Carlucci has empowered Republicans for years to block fair school funding and reproductive rights protections.
NEW CITY – On Thursday, May 31st, Julie Goldberg will announce her campaign to run for State Senate in New York’s 38th Senate District, which comprises the towns of Clarkstown, Orangetown, Ossining and Ramapo. Grassroots groups and supporters will join Goldberg, and her husband to kick off her bid to serve as a true Democrat representing the people of Rockland and Westchester. An advocate for public school education and progressive reform, Goldberg was motivated to run after David Carlucci allied himself for seven years in the Senate with Republicans while calling himself a Democrat. “With Donald Trump and his enablers controlling Washington, it’s more important than ever to have honest leaders representing us and protecting New Yorkers from the Republican agenda,” said Goldberg. “Carlucci empowered Republicans to lead our state senate since 2011, blocking education justice for our neediest schools, reproductive rights protections, stronger gun control, and campaign finance reform. For years I have watched this duplicity go unchallenged. I couldn’t stay on the sidelines any longer.” Goldberg’s years as an educator and public servant have taught her the importance of fair education funding. “The children of East Ramapo and Ossining are owed tens of millions by New York according to a court ruling. It’s a travesty that our senator has been blocking these needy districts from receiving the aid they are due.”
