Monroe County Democrats are proud to support the efforts to secure a true Democratic Majority in the New York State Senate, and next week we have the potential to make history. We need to elect Shelley Mayer to the New York State Senate in the April 24th Special Election so we can to flip the chamber from #RedToBlue, deliver a Democratic trifecta to New York, and make Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins our first-ever female Majority Leader! After taking the Majority, we then will turn our focus to sending Upstate Democrats like Jen Lunsford (Democratic Candidate for the 55th State Senate District right here in Rochester!) to bring our voices to the new Senate Majority.
To get there, Shelley’s campaign has begun building the largest Get Out the Vote program our state has ever seen. That means having volunteers from all over our state and country reach out to voters from now until Election Day. So far, the campaign’s 3,000 volunteers have knocked on 65,000 doors, made 100,000 phone calls, and talked to 25,000 voters. Now it’s time to get those voters out.
SIGN UP HERE to help us elect Shelley Mayer and flip the New York State Senate by joining our GOTV virtual phonebank. MCDC will be hosting phone banks from Sunday, April 22nd to Tuesday, April 24th. Each call is a potential vote that can help win this election and make New York a truly Blue State. **Volunteers will need to bring a laptop or tablet if possible for these phone banks. Please let us know if you need accommodations when you sign up!**
