Seconds often make the difference between life and death and new technology makes the difference…
While it is always important for our community to vote in large numbers, recent redistricting has made it all the more imperative.
Most disturbing is a change in Brooklyn that raises the possibility that City Councilman Charles Barron – who has openly declared he has problems with white people and who over the years has made statements that have led even staunch Democrats to accuse him of anti-Semitism – stands a very real chance of defeating State Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries in the June 26 Democratic primary in the 8th Congressional district. The victor will succeed Congressman Edolphus Towns.
A press conference held the other day in support of Mr. Jeffries by a group of elected officials and community leaders in front of New York City’s City Hall underscored this very real concern.
The Barron-Jeffries race may be the most extreme example, but it underscores the point that we all must come out to vote, no matter where we reside.
