DID Endorsements

August 28, 2014

DID ENDORSEMENTS FOR NY STATE GOVERNOR & LT. GOVERNOR:

GOVERNOR: Zephyr Teachout
LT. GOVERNOR: Timothy Wu

The Downtown Independent Democrats - unanimously - endorsed Zephyr Teachout for Governor and Timothy Wu for Lieutenant Governor.

Zephyr Teachout zeroes right in on issues of great concern to us: Fracking, government corruption, infrastructure investment, schools, natural resources, the business economy upstate & downstate.

Her legal and academic expertise are well suited to the job at this time in our history. She is an expert on political corruption and antitrust/big bank issues. She's clerked in the US Court of Appeals, was a director in Howard Dean's campaign, and was part of a foundation which focused on the role of money in politics and advocating for policy changes. She also hang glides. We like the whole package.

Timothy Wu has the attitude and forward voice to push NY State into the future. He believes in open democracy as well as an open internet. That works for us. His background is extraordinary, from antitrust issues to technology. He is the one who coined the term "net neutrality"! Timothy Wu is a forward-thinking policy maker, Harvard-educated lawyer, renowned author and fighter for the consumer.

"Zephyr" is a word for a breeze or a light wind. Along with Timothy Wu, we need this fresh air in our government.
