Since 1971, the D.I.D. has committed to making the NY Democratic Party a vehicle for progressive policy and empowering our communities.
We remain committed to those goals and to the Democratic Party.
However, our commitment to meaningful progressive policy makes it impossible for us to support the current Democratic nominee for governor. Campaign finance reform has been a joke, and the joke is on us.
The U.N. warned in the last days about severe, dire, and irreversible climate change, while the governor dithers
on hydrofracking.
He also formed a separate political party FOR women, which intent is clearly to USE women for political gain.
Woman have been fighting too long for equality to be used in this manner.
We have to send a clear message. Vote on the Green Party line for Governor and Lt. Governor.
