On Tuesday November 7th Democratic Candidates nationwide were voted into office and took control of both the House and Senate as well as several state Governorships. The country quickly made a transformation. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld resigned Wednesday November 8th. And, President Bush says he is now open to hearing ‘any ideas or suggestions’ concerning the Iraq War. The Democrats look strong and have a great opportunity now.

Congratulations to our New York State Officials Governor-elect Eliot Spiter, Lt. Governor-elect David Paterson, Attorney General-elect Andrew Cuomo, and Comptroller-elect Alan Hevesi.

Locally on the East Side of Manhattan, Brian Kavanagh won his Assembly seat in a landslide. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, State Senators Krueger & Duane, and Assemblyman Bing won re-election.
