Mike Lawler Raises Over $110,000 For State Assembly Campaign

Published

on

PEARL RIVER, NY – Mike Lawler, the Deputy Town Supervisor in the Town of Orangetown and the Republican, Conservative, Independence, and SAM Party Candidate for the 97th Assembly District, announced that his campaign raised over $110,000 since he announced his candidacy back in early March.

Lawler had set a goal of raising $100,000 by the July 15th filing deadline and blew past it, raising over $40,000 in the final ten days alone.
“I’m grateful for the strong support from donors across Rockland County and New York State. As a lifelong resident of Rockland County, I’m heartened by the response our campaign has received since we announced in early March,” Lawler said. “While these past five months have been a trying time for so many of our residents, today’s filing makes one thing clear, people want new leadership in Albany and a strong voice to advocate for our community. I am that voice.”
Lawler continued, “With over three months to go in this campaign, I will continue to work hard and speak to the issues that matter most: affordability, jobs and economic recovery, education, health care, infrastructure, and above all, public safety. The movement by the progressive Democrats to defund our police departments is having a disastrous impact on the safety of all New Yorkers and it needs to stop. Their anger should be directed at the politicians in Albany and New York City who have failed to do their jobs. As Assemblyman, I will do the hard work of bringing law enforcement and communities together to address these issues and more, so that we can ensure equality and justice for all New Yorkers.”
In conclusion, Lawler said, “I am in this campaign to win it and today’s filing proves we are on track to flip this seat in November, restoring balance and common sense to state government.”
Lawler received support from 367 unique donors, with a median donation of $100. As of today’s filing, Lawler has over $100,000 cash on hand. His opponent, Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffe, has raised $7,480 and has $10,000 overall.

Elijah Reichlin-Melnick Declared Winner in 38th Senate District, Weber Concedes

NYACK, NY -Elijah Reichlin-Melnick Declared Winner in 38th Senate District, Weber Concedes

Senator Elect Reichlin-Melnick (Elijah Reichlin-Melnick for Senate) released the following statement:

Eleven months ago, we started this journey and today, two weeks after Election Day, I’m so excited to share the news with you that we have won this race!

With about 16,000 absentee ballots counted, we now have a 1,766 vote lead over Bill Weber! While there are still about 19,000 absentee ballots to be counted, the remaining ballots are from the two most Democratic towns in the district and come overwhelmingly from Democratic voters, meaning this lead will only grow once the final ballots are counted. [UPDATE – the lead is already growing. At around 5pm we got our final update on the count for today, which has pushed our lead up to 2,615 votes over Weber. Counting will resume on Wednesday.]

It is the honor of my life to have the opportunity to represent the people of Rockland and Westchester Counties in the New York State Senate. I am so incredibly grateful, really more so than I can even express, to all of you who have donated, volunteered, made phone calls, sent postcards, talked to your friends, offered words of support and advice, and so much more, over the course of this campaign.

To the voters of the 38th District who spoke loudly and clearly that they want to make New York work for everyone, not just the wealthy and the well-connected, thank you so much! We have a lot of work to do, and I look forward to going to Albany to fight for the middle class and working people of our district.

I want to thank Bill Weber for participating in this process and congratulate him on a hard-fought race. And to everyone who voted for Bill, I will be your representative as well, and work to earn your support.

There will be much more to say in the coming days and weeks as the final ballots are counted and we add to this lead, but for now, thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I am excited, and ready to get to work!

UPDATE – As expected our lead is continuing to grow as more votes are counted. We just got our final update for today, an additional 2,395 ballots counted, which has pushed our lead up to 2,615 votes over Weber. Counting will resume on Wednesday.

“Because Elijah has distinguished himself on the Nyack Village Board and as Legislative Director for Senator Skoufis, there is no one better qualified to represent our community in the State Senate. That’s why he won a tremendous victory in all corners of the district and there’s no doubt he will be an extraordinary Senator. “ said Rockland County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Kristen Zebrowski Stavisky.
