Canvass for Christine Pellegrino

A special election for NY State Assembly District 9 is being held on Tuesday, May 23. Democratic candidate Christine Pellegrino is a teacher who has been teaching reading in the district for 25 years. She was a delegate for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Primary and has been endorsed by a number of progressive groups. Her opponent is running from the Conservative Party (further right that the Republicans) who recently posted on Facebook that he opposes the move to provide legal council for immigrants, stating: “We can empower these gangs by making New York a sanctuary state, providing them a taxpayer-funded legal defense against their deportation, and learn nothing from these events, or we can go the route of encouraging our brave men and women in the police force to work with federal authorities to work toward their deportation and keep law-abiding New Yorkers safe.”
