A poll conducted among the many thousands of working families, progressive residents, patriotic Americans, hard working tax payers, new Americans and immigrants in State Senate District 15 shows massive support for State Senate candidate, Attorney at Law and Community Advocate Albert Baldeo over both Councilman Joe Addabbo and State Senate incumbent Serf Maltese. Mr. Baldeo and his family have strong roots in the diverse community, and constituents strongly believe that he knows their issues and concerns best of all the candidates running.


Albert, who lost the last elections by a mere 1% of the votes in 2006, despite the lack of institutional support, galvanized the grass roots and has been receiving tremendous support from many working families, organizations, business leaders and activists this time around, who are urging every voter to rally around his candidacy and support him in this historic bid to flip the State Senate. "He is the most qualified candidate to represent, protect and advance our concerns, problems and interests. In fact, we have never benefited in any tangible way from his opponents Councilman Joe Addabbo and Senator Serf Maltese, despite the fact that we live and pay taxes in their districts. We have endured "taxation without representation" for too long, and must demand accountability from those who took an oath, and are paid to represent us, not denigrate us, so that we can have our fair share of governmental services and benefits-like other communities," is the mantra of many disillusioned voters in the district. 


Many felt that Addabbo was merely running to secure a job due to term limits. Common complaints are reflected in voters, who say, "In fact, although we give him a pass on the City Council slush funds scandal, we denounce Councilman Joe Addabbo for his harassment of minorities, his vote for the record property tax increase of 18.5% which has spiraled record foreclosures in our district while voting himself a 25% salary increase, his numerous campaign finance violations, his track record of abusing tax payer funds, his poor environmental and animal rights records and abuse, and Maltese for more of the same. Both are recycled politicians playing musical chairs on our tax dollars."


Baldeo has been receiving glowing endorsements and support from many community workers, leaders, businessmen, professionals and labor representatives in his efforts to change the NY State Senate from Republican to Democrat. Many were quick to point out, "Baldeo is a fighter for all constituents. You must help him win this seat this time, so that he can be your voice for bringing much needed resources, jobs, reforms and benefits to our district in health care, education, housing, jobs and government services, and address police harassment and racial discrimination. He has distinguished himself with his perseverance and hard work to uplift our quality of life. Stand up and be counted! Go out and vote for Albert Baldeo-and tell your relatives and friends to do so also!"
