Message from the Eastchester Democratic Committee Chair

Greetings, fellow Democrats from the Eastchester Democratic Committee.

The county convention is now behind us and Westchester Democrats have chosen Noam Bramson, Mayor of New Rochelle, as the candidate for County Executive. Ken Jenkins, Chairman of the Westchester County Board of Legislators, and William Ryan, County Legislator and former Chairman of the Board, both ran energetic campaigns, but as promised, there will be no primary and both have pledged their support to Noam. The campaign to make Rob Astorino a one-term County Executive is now underway. More information on Noam's campaign and how you can help Noam can be found by visiting his web site at http://www.noambramson.org.

Tim Idoni, our current Westchester County Clerk, and Janet DiFiore, our current Westchester District Attorney, were also nominated to run for re-election. Kathie Davidson was nominated to run for re-election to Westchester County Family Court and David Everett was nominated to run for election to Westchester County Court.

Thank you and thanks to everyone who worked so hard for all of the County Executive candidates and we look forward to working together to elect Noam Bramson, Tim Idoni, Janet DiFiore and all of our Democratic candidates in November.

The Eastchester Democratic Committee will continue to work to improve our web site and our ability to more easily reach Eastchester Dems via targeted emails and social media. We will make better use of email marketing tools and will be starting a communications committee to help on these outreach efforts. We will also expand our outreach to high school and college-aged students who want to get more involved in the political process. We have made improvements to our Eastchester Democratic Committee Facebook page and now have many new “LIKES,” mostly from people who we may not have found as easily. We will work hard to keep growing these contacts on a regular basis.

Voting numbers are always important and Democratic voter registration data continues to show very positive and optimistic trending. The number of Eastchester Democrats has increased from 6,735 on January 1 to 6,893 on October 19 – an increase of 158. Over that same period, Republicans increased from 8,328 to 8,356, an increase of 28. Eleven years ago, the number of registered Eastchester (including the villages of Bronxville & Tuckahoe) Republicans outnumbered the number of registered Democrats by 3,052. That gap has now closed to 1,463. Tuckahoe Democrats now outnumber Tuckahoe Republicans by 278.

Regular fundraising efforts will become a year-round activity. We just witnessed firsthand what the Republican Party was willing to do, say and spend to win the 37th Senate District. Although our fellow voters were not fooled by their barrage of negative flyers and phone calls, we have to stand ready to help our current elected officials and our future candidates for office with not just our votes. Our financial support is crucial if we want our candidates to be successful. Knowing how important this will be, we have tried to make fundraising as easy as possible and anyone who wants to donate can click on the link on the right side and enter a contribution right on our home page with a credit card. Checks are welcome as well and can be mailed to the committee as well.

It is never too early to plan for our future elections – and those efforts begin today!

Thanks again for all that you do for our organization, candidates and elected officials.
