petitioningThe VID began petitioning to get our endorsed NYS candidates – Brad Hoylman- State Senate,27th SD; Deborah Glick- State Assembly, 66th AD; Rachel Lavine- State Committeewoman, 66th and Benjamin Yee- State Committeeman, 66th AD – on the ballot Tuesday, June 7th.  On Thursday, June 9th petitions will be available at the VID General Membership Meeting at 83 Christopher Street.  On Saturday, June 11 petitions will be available at the kickoff breakfast (compliments of Assemblywoman Deborah Glick) at our 26 Perry St. headquarters from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.  All petitioners are invited. The following week VID headquarters will be open Monday-Thursday, 6:00-7:30 PM and Saturday from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.

As part of VID’s effort to get our endorsed candidates elected VID will simultaneously do a major push to get our congressional candidates, Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, re-elected.  Primary Day for federal candidates is June 28th.  We need to work hard to inform the public that there will be a Primary on June 28th by handing out literature on the street and distributing Dear Neighbor letters in buildings that VID’ers live.  We also plan on handing out literature at the polls on Primary Day.

Erik Coler is in charge of VID’s petitioning and get out the vote campaign.  Please contact him and let him know when you are available to petition and help with the get out the vote campaign (Erikcoler@gmail.com,  917-699-2320).  OR you can sign yourself up for a shift:
