Last night’s End of Petitioning party was a rousing success!
Tilden members gathered at Dan Garodnick’s home on Thursday evening to wrap-up the petition period that began on June 7th. Louise Dankberg, District Leader, estimates Tilden members had gathered over 1500 signatures. Kristin Booth Glen, candidate for Surrogate’s Court Judge, Rosie Mendez, candidate for City Council from District 2 and Scott Stringer, candidate for Manhattan Borough President, dropped by to talk about their campaigns and thank the Tilden Democratic Club for their support. Dan Garodnick gave an update on his campaign for City Council and thanked all Tilden members for their early endorsement. It was a great evening!
