Nobody ever said that taking on the Oyster Bay Republican Machine was going to be easy, but this year we have shown time and time again that we’re up for the fight.
In May, we not only won the Special Election in the 9th Assembly District, we made national headlines; including The Independent, The Observer, Daily Kos, Newsweek, Salon , The New York Times, among others.
“Ms. Pellegrino defeated her Republican opponent, Tom Gargiulo, in the Ninth Assembly District on Long Island, 58 % to 42 % even though the district is heavily Republican and President Trump won it with 60% the vote.”
Following our victory in the South Shore, we went on to have a record-breaking Petition Cycle. During the summer we knocked on over 20,000 doors and collected over 5,000 signatures to secure the Democratic Nomination for our Candidates.
Since the summer, we’ve been working hard, knocking on doors, making phone calls, and attending events all around the Town, and there is no question, however, that the political momentum is with us. All across the Town people are becoming increasingly involved, and this was on full display last week when our entire team of Laura Curran, Jack Schnirman, Dean Bennett, & Arnie Drucker all had dominating victories to secure their Democratic nominations.
