Remember (how could you forget?) that PRIMARY DAY is Tuesday, September 9! Please vote at your usual poll site. The polls are open from 6 am to 9 pm. Please vote for our endorsed candidates:
Governor – Andrew M. Cuomo
Lt. Governor – Kathy C. Hochul
Senator (28th Dist) – Liz Krueger
These are the only contested races in “Tilden Town.”
One of the important roles Tilden plays is being in the forefront in electing Judicial candidates. Many of you were present earlier this year when we heard from different judicial candidates running for Civil Court. Another part of the judicial process – is the nomination of Supreme Court Judges by delegates from all the clubs.
The Supreme Court Independent Screening Panel – which names the candidates for Judges that the delegates then select at the upcoming Judicial Convention – reported out the following candidates as being the most Highly Qualified:
Tilden’s own NANCY BANNON, James D’Auguste and Lynn Kotler. Congratulations to all. They join the ‘automatic’ candidates who have already been reported out twice (Kathryn Freed, Lori Sattler, Arlene Bluth, Arthur Engoren, Andrea Masley, Barbara Jaffe and Ruth Pickholtz). As we know, there is only one vacancy this year, besides Milton Tingling who is running for reelection.
The Judicial Convention is on Tuesday, September 16th at 6 pm at the School of Visual Arts Theater (West 23rd Street between 8th and 9th Avenues). If you attend, please wear your Tilden T Shirts!
We have some good news about Arthur Wolf. He is doing very well and will be heading home on Tuesday (in time to vote!). Let’s all reach out to Arthur to welcome him home and be sure to help in with a speedy recovery.
