A special election for NY State Assembly District 9 will take place on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. Democratic candidate Christine Pellegrino is running against Republican candidate Thomas Gargiulo.
New York Progressive Action Network (NYPAN) and Grassroots Action NY are seeking volunteers to help get Christine Pellegrino elected and flip a seat that has been red for the past 20 years. For a list of phone banking opportunities and upcoming events, please visit the google doc. The next canvassing opportunity will take place on Saturday, May 6 at 10:00 am. Organizers are coordinating carpools from Barclays Center to Massapequa – RSVP here.
A win in NYS Assembly District 9 would be the first “flipped” district under Trump. Please volunteer and donate if you can!
