Latest updates from the campaign:
Democrats work to expand their footprint
Chris Burdick is an NYS Assemblymember representing the 93rd District who co-sponsored a bill that will harm our District and the NYS. The bill moves to shift off-year local elections to coincide with national elections. The Assemblyman states that the change is needed to help address voter confusion and low turnout.
What is going on here is a blatant grab for power by the NYS Democratic Party. Local and Federal issues are not always aligned, and merging the two elections drowns out local issues. Conservatives have more representation outside of NYC, and by some ‘coincidence,’ NYC is excepted from this bill.
Each election needs to stand on its own. If Burdick was concerned about limiting confusion and promoting voter turnout, he would not have exempted NYC from the bill. Is Burdick representing the 93rd District or the NYC Progressive Party?

Taxpayers May Foot the Bill for Penn Station Rehab
The Bills Stadium was not enough for Gov. Hochul. The Democratic Administration is also pushing for an unprecedented rehab of Penn Station. This development is the largest project in American history, with eleven new office towers. The project is more than ten years old, and NYC's Independent Budget Office raises concerns. The expected revenue will not cover the cost, leaving the taxpayers to foot the bill. These concerns are not enough to stop the NYS Administration from pushing the project forward.
