"LET US UNITE FOR OUR COMMON GOOD!"
FRONT RUNNER ALBERT BALDEO MAINTAINS MASSIVE
LEAD! FUNDRAISING EXCEEDS ALL OPPONENTS COMBINED!
Recently, most City Council Candidates as well as Citywide Candidates
filed Statement 8 with the NYC Campaign Finance Board. According
to the filings, Attorney at Law Albert Baldeo has outpaced all of
his declared rivals in fundraising for the Sept. 13 Democratic Primary.
He reported raising $48,595 in contributions from 202 donors. His
closest rival Tom White, Jr. raised $22,641 from 108 donors, while
minor candidates Dhanpaul Narine raised $9,977 from 42 donors, Larry
McClean raised $555 from 9 donors, and Charles Bilal’s filing has
yet to be updated.
Incumbent Councilman Allan Jennings has yet to file with the Board
as he owes $40,000 in outstanding penalties from his 2001 and 2003
“I want to thank all of my supporters across this district who
have financially contributed to my campaign. Together, we will succeed.
We will now be able to get our message out to the voters who, after
two terms of Jennings’ antics and Tom White's 60 % absenteeism,
are ready for improvements in education, health care, jobs, wages,
housing, small businesses, safety, property taxes, public transportation,
police relations, the environment and other quality of life issues.
The residents of District 28 are seeing the need for change, and
I am stepping up to the plate to bat for them," Baldeo said.
Baldeo, who has stepped up his campaign to the entire district,
urged, "Unless we unite, register to vote, and exercise our
right to vote, we will be kept out of the benefits our tax payments
should bring to us. The last Councilmen, Allan Jennings and Tom
White, did very little, if anything, for us, and we should send
someone who would represent our interests to the City Council. I
am that candidate! We cannot be running from "pillar to post"
all our lives! The Diaspora has enriched America, and we must get
our fair due from the government! I will be here for the entire
district, and together, we will chart a new course to a better quality
of life for all of us!"
"I AM IN THIS FOR ALL OF US-OUR CHILDREN, OUR NEIGHBORS, OUR
BROTHERS & OUR SISTERS!" BALDEO
I am stepping up to the plate to go to bat for the residents of
Council District 28- Rochdale, Richmond Hill, Jamaica and Ozone
Park, because our community needs dynamic, inspiring, moral and
robust new leadership. I will bring a fresh and invigorating approach
to tackling the pressing issues and problems in this district rising
above those who seek to divide and marginalize us. It will be a
pay cut for me, but our community needs me more!
Advocating for a person means advancing and protecting every part
of his or her life. Each day in my office, and in our neighborhoods,
I hear my clients and fellow citizens telling me of how city government
is failing to provide essential services to improve our quality
of life in health, education, housing, transportation, senior services,
wages & workers’ benefits, crime, police-community relations,
discrimination, youth programs, jobs, among many other concerns.
I am seeking office to change that and make city government work
for all of us in this district, to advance economic prosperity and
civic pride, alleviate poverty, hardship and suffering, and eradicate
all injustices and shortcomings in our society. I answer to no political
boss or special interests. You, the people, are my boss. I will
fight to make open, honest government a reality in District 28.
Together we will aspire, and together, we will succeed!"
VOTE ALBERT BALDEO -YOUR VOICE IN THE CITY COUNCIL! HE WILL BE

COMMUNITY LEADERS/ACTIVISTS, MEDIA, RELIGIOUS, WORKING FAMILIES
