October super-majority status update

Monday, October 10th, 2011

As you may well know, the Democrats on the County Board of Legislators currently hold a 12-5 super-majority that allows them to override the vetoes of current Tea Party County Executive Rob Astorino. They need our help to make sure they maintain it. With 2 open seats and several incumbents threatened, WYD needs you to step up.

In northern Westchester, Legislators Harckham, Kaplowitz, and Nonna face serious opposition and the open seats caused by the retirements of Marty Rogowsky and Bill Burton also deserve attention. In Yonkers alone, we have 3 Young Dems running, including 2 pickup opportunities, one of which is our own Vice President George Kevgas, running against 16-year incumbemt Bernice Spreckman in southeast Yonkers and Fleetwood while Theo Moustakopoulos is running against Legislator Gordon Burrows in northeast Yonkers and Bronxville. Virginia Perez is running to keep the Democratic seat held by Legislator Jose Alvarado who she defeated in September. The last 2 Democratic challengers are Michael Kane in Peekskill and John Fitzpatrick in Eastchester/New Rochelle.

Help us bolster the Democratic majority and keep Rob Astorino in check — get involved today!
