The September 13th primary is rapidly approaching and you can be sure that we will be making candidate endorsements across the political spectrum for all of the different parties holding electoral contests on that day.
For now, however, we want to draw your attention to the Democratic Primary for State Senate in the 38th district, which includes most of Rockland and a small piece of Westchester.
We strongly endorse Julie Goldberg for state senate in the 38th District. Her website is www.juliefornysenate.com Please check it out and join the energy and excitement of her campaign.
Julie Goldberg has the integrity, the intellect, and the resume so necessary to be our champion in Albany. As an educator, activist, and working mother of two sons, Julie’s life experience gives her the insight so critical to be an effective state senator fighting for the issues that really matter to us.
Preserve Ramapo has no intention of endorsing David Carlucci, in the general election.
Carlucci, is an effective campaigner, but cannot be trusted. He makes believe he is a progressive Democrat, but he has not been a reliable supporter of public education. Behind the scenes he supports the large developers who have done so much to destroy responsible housing in Ramapo.
Carlucci will receive all of the bloc vote in the Democratic primary which makes it impossible for us to endorse him in the general election. Having Carlucci on the ballot as the Democratic nominee in November will put Preserve Ramapo in a very difficult position.
Democrats, if you want our support in the general election, we ask and we hope that you will give your vote to Julie Goldberg in the Democratic Primary on Thursday, September 13th.
