It was in person! And we had a guest! And it was cold when the sun went down.
Matt Purtorti, Congressional candidate for NY21 spoke to us and answered questions. We had a large turnout and it was so nice to see everyone in person again. Given today’s polarized and toxic political environment, it’s reassuring that another good candidate for office took the time to meet with us. Matt is the third Congressional candidate this cycle we’ve met, one Republican and two Democrats. Our little committee is building a good reputation as a place for candidates to visit.
The committee wants more guests and I’m working on inviting our new Assembly Member, Billy Jones, to our May meeting. The committee is also interested in extending an invitation to NY State Senator Dan Stec. The Senator and I recently chatted and he expressed interest, too.
