Three Election Days in 2022! We Need Democrats To Come Out In Force!

A Busy Election Year!!

Every ten years, election district lines are redrawn based on new census results. This year in New York, the process has been messy and protracted. But new districts are set for now.

The other new factor is that Congressman Delgado resigned to become Lt. Governor, meaning we have to fill that vacancy for the remainder of his term.

This is still a somewhat fluid situation. Please check back here as we will update these pages as we get more details.

June 28 –
Primary to choose Democratic candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, and State Assembly member

August 23 –
Special election to fill our vacant congressional seat. Possible Democratic primary for congressional candidate

November 8 –
General election for Governor, Lt. Governor, Congress, NYS Senate, Assembly

Message from our Chair: Uvalde, Texas

Dear Democratic Friends,

It is with deeply sorrowful and heavy hearts that we listen to the news and aftermath of the events in Uvalde, Texas.  As the mother of three young, beautiful girls, I cannot imagine the grief and deep sadness that must be in the hearts of the families who have faced this domestic terrorism in their school.  It is unbearable to think how I could go on.  And I am so angered at the unwillingness of Republicans to protect the people they represent.  In the words of Chris Murphy (D-CT), “WHAT ARE WE DOING?”

Enough is enough.  We must all stand up and raise our voices and demand sensible gun laws across this country, many of which are supported by over 80% of Americans, and yet the gun lobby still holds its grip on the Republican politicians that it funds.  Enough is enough.  Our children and citizens deserve to know they are safe when they are in school, when they are shopping at the grocery store, when they are living their lives.  And it is SHAMEFUL that we have Republican representatives who choose money over protecting the lives of U.S. citizens.

We stand in solidarity and honor the victims of the domestic terrorism tragedies in Buffalo and Uvalde.  Let us grieve together and then stand up and fight.  We will vote.  We will win.  Enough IS ENOUGH.

In solidarity,

Nejla

Nejla Liias, Chair

We are heartbroken by the mass shooting in Buffalo by a white supremacist. We must dedicate ourselves to fighting racism and ridding our streets of guns. At this moment, we can support Black-led organizations in Buffalo who are working to help the families and communities most affected by this tragedy.
Here are a few groups:

  • Fruit Belt Community Land Trust – a membership based organization creating a community economy, shared equity home ownership, and permanently affordable housing. Donations will provide access to fresh food, 3 months rent relief. tinyurl.com/3n56bxjc
  • Black Love Resists In the Rust – a membership-based Black-led abolitionist organization. Donations will provide ongoing access to mental heath services and access to fresh food. tinyurl.com/2uwf3etx
  • African Heritage Food Co-op – a community owned and operated co-op working to create community ownership of the food system, promote health and wellness, create good jobs, and a local economy that works for everyone.
