Leave No Voter Behind Tomorrow
As we said in 2008:
It has long been a cliché to many, but it is a truth that one cannot ignore. For many of us, our ancestors died to give us the right to vote. To squander that vote or to relinquish it because of inconvenience would be obscene, whether we have faith that our individual votes will shape the outcomes of elections or not. Because the 15th Amendment (1870) and the Voting Rights Act (1965) were victories secured by the blood of our ancestors, every election day is a sacred day, and we show our respect for those who made our votes possible by going to the polls and by encouraging everyone we know to join us in that sacred activity - tomorrow and every election day of any sort.
Governor Cuomo for Rangel
Late last week, New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo offered a thorough endorsement of Upper Manhattan's Congressman, Charlie Rangel.
Governor Cuomo stated:
"He’s been very good at bringing things back to the state of New York, which is a big part of what the Congress does. I think he is best suited not just for the district, but for his state. His seniority is a major asset for this state.”
Cuomo also endorsed Hakeem Jeffries for a key Brooklyn Congressional seat and opposed the Brooklyn Democratic Party leadership by backing Rep. Nydia Velazquez in her primary fight against City Councilman Erik Dilan.
Manhattan Will Win
If we vote, we win. The only way that Manhattan can lose the election tomorrow is if we fail to vote.
