Nominating Committee update; Next General Meeting October 16

On Monday evening, September 29, the Executive Committee met and voted to elect the following members to the Nominating Committee: Ahsia Badi, Genevieve Cervera, Louise Dankberg, Laura Koestler, Marcia Robinson, Paula Schaeffer, and Kate Waterman. Laura Koestler has agreed to serve as the Interim Chair. The committee is charged with accepting and vetting candidates for office and will organize a Candidate Forum, which will be held at the November 20 meeting. There are rumors that Errol Lewis of NY1 television will be broadcasting live from Seafarer's that evening.

Don't forget to attend the October 16 General Membership Meeting at Seafarer's Institute. We will begin promptly at 7:30 pm.


Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day! Join the fun!

You’ve been waiting for this day to come around again. Remember last year when Texas beat New York by registering a measly dozen more new voters than New York? Well, now we have the chance to right that wrong! Join Tilden’s Voter Registration Committee Members and Friends on Tuesday, September 23 (also known as National Voter Registration Day) from 6:30 – 7:30 pm in front of the new Starbucks at the southeast corner of 23rd Street and First Avenue. We’ll have t-shirts and forms and a lot of fun encouraging folks to sign up to vote in time for the November 4 election. We will also be signing up new voters in partnership with the Bellevue CAB in the “F Link” corridor of Bellevue Hospital (that’s in the C-D Building, across from the Gift Shop) from 10 am - 3 pm earlier in the day.

Join Senator Hoylman Sunday at People's Climate March

Dear Friend:

I urge you to join me this Sunday, September 21 at the People’s Climate March to greet the world leaders who are converging on New York City for next week’s United Nations Climate Summit 2014.

Over 950 progressive organizations are collaborating to produce this massive event to demand that summit delegates adopt an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution, protect our natural resources and secure environmental justice.

The March will step off at 11:30 a.m. just north of Columbus Circle and end on Eleventh Avenue between 34th Street and 38th Streets. I hope to see you there.

All best,


Brad Hoylman
State Senator
27th District
