We recently opened up a separate Federal PAC to allow CBID to donate to Federal candidates like Max Rose, David Pechchefsky and Liuba Grechen Shirley. We’ve never been able to donate to Congressional candidates before, but this year it is so important that Democrats take back the House that we cannot sit idly by.  Please help us support our local Democratic Congressional candidates.

May Presidents Message

May President’s Message

Dear CBID,

We are just about through this year’s busy endorsement season.  After our May meeting we’ll be in the full swing of things election wise. Between the Congressional Primaries under a month away and petitioning for our State candidates ramping up, it’s time to start putting our feet on the pavement and getting to work. This is now the crucial time for CBID to make an impact in these elections.

We’ve had hearty discussions, we’ve met with the candidates, we’ve debated and done our due diligence. Now we have to stand for them and do what I personally think is the actual fun part of all this – engaging with voters. At the end of the day, it’s up to us to help turn out the vote. Yes, New York’s laws are antiquated and suppress new voters; yes, we’re in the bottom of voter turnout; and yes, we need real legislative change to those things.  But while we advocate for those reforms, we can also knock on doors, make phone calls, and talk to our neighbors in the mean time.

We’re not going to see real voting reform, or reproductive rights reform, or immigration reform, or public education spending, or anything unless we flip the House and flip the State Senate.  We can make substantial changes right here and get behind candidates who truly represent the values we want to continue fighting for.  And the way to do that isn’t a secret.  It’s knocking on doors, it’s getting petition signatures, it’s making phone calls.

I hope you can all prioritize making some time in the coming weeks and months.  Being a part of CBID has personally led to some of the most meaningful relationships I can remember, and it begins with voter outreach and connections.

Let’s get to work!
