Special Election!

This summer, coming to a legislative district near you, a blockbuster event you won’t want to miss — Special Election: Westchester Edition.

Last month, longtime Republican County Legislator (14th District) Bernice Spreckman resigned her seat, setting up a heated race to succeed her, while just last night, a nominating convention held to pick the Democratic candidate chose our very own WYD Secretary Christine Peters! Christine ran a very spirited, close-fought race against Bernice last November, and is looking to do the same this summer.

The Republican-IDC coalition on the Board of Legislators called for a Special Election in the dead of summer (on Tuesday, August 9th, just over a month away) to minimize turnout and cost taxpayers an estimated $100,000 instead of scheduling it jointly with the September primary. As such, Christine will need all hands on deck. To get involved you can e-mail or come out tonight to her campaign kickoff event/fundraiser in Yonkers!
