The Lenox Hill Dems have wrapped up an incredibly successful petitioning season!
Led by some veteran standouts, such as Ruth, Jill, John & Jonathan, as well as some newer (and huuuuge) contributors, like Jim Clynes, Josh Kravitz & Peggy O'Reilly, the LHDC turned in almost 3,000 signatures this week! All of our candidates, including Liz Krueger, Jose M. Serrano, Rebecca Seawright, Josh Hanshaft, Emily Morales-Minerva, Sabrina Kraus, Ruth Halberg and Jonathan Piel (and our slate of judicial delegates!) will have absolutely no problem getting on the ballot. Furthermore, we have already done a great deal to expand their recognition and support in the community. Onward to the primary in September!
Let's Help Support Zephyr Teachout, Who Has Been So Supportive of the LHDC!
Zephyr is the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in NY's 19th, a critical swing district that is vacant due to the retirement of Chris Gibson. Zephyr headlined our own LHDC annual dinner in 2015, and we should try to return the favor by supporting her now. Zephyr's race is one of the top 10 most competitive in the entire country, and is critically important for Democrats to pick up seats in the House. She should win (and she will win!), but it will take money. So please join us at either of these upcoming events (the first is tonight!), and we will keep you posted of more as they come:
Thursday (7/14 - tonight!) please join Zephyr for an evening reception with special guest Wendy Davis in Tribeca. Wendy is a vocal advocate for women's rights and liberty. She led in a 10 hour filibuster in the Texas State Senate in 2013 to stall a bill that would restrict access to abortion clinics. The reception will run from 6:00 - 7:30 pm and will support Zephyr's campaign as well as the campaigns of Colleen Deacon (NY-24), Kim Myers (NY-22) and Anna Throne-Holst (NY-1). Click here to RSVP.
