WHERE I STAND

THE FEEDS

Dear Friends,

Over 10,000 Democrats honored me with their votes in the NYC Mayoral primary on Tuesday!

I am very proud of our four-month shoestring campaign against an incumbent mayor with $7M to spend and all the machinery of government to promote himself.

Although I was disappointed not to win, it was hugely gratifying to receive an outpouring of support from so many New Yorkers, and to advance many critical policy positions.

I want to send my deepest thanks to everyone who gave me encouragement, support, time, thought, energy, care, and financial contributions.

As for the future, to continue quoting Sinatra - the best is yet to come! Will keep you posted.
