Wanted: More Oomph!

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Here’s why Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation, recommends voting on the Working Families Party ballot line for Bill de Blasio this year:

“A vote for de Blasio on the Working Families Party line is a way of giving your vote some added, well, oomph.  It’s a way to send a message that you applaud the progressive values that de Blasio embodies.” [1]

For the first time in twelve years, New York City government is turning over. This year we fought hard to make sure progressive champions will be taking over the reigns. We’ll have Bill de Blasio for Mayor, Letitia James for Public Adovcate, and Scott Stringer for Comptroller. And on the City Council, we helped elect a dozen new progressive faces. Now we’ll have a chance to transform New York into a city that really works for all of us, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

But there will be big challenges too. Corporate lobbyists, real estate developers and Rupert Murdoch won’t just let it happen. So let’s send de Blasio to office with the strongest progressive mandate we can — with a strong vote on the Working Families ballot line.

Together, we can build a better New York. Join me in voting on the Working Families Party ballot line on November 5th.
