We had a terrific turnout and lots of fun at my "Re-Election Campaign Kickoff" Dinner at Davenport Club in New Rochelle on April 11, 2013. Check out all the great photos (thanks Charlie McLaughlin):
I'm lucky to have the very best campaign supporters in the county. We've won 8 consecutive County Legislator elections, and when opposed, we won landslide victories. I owe all this success to my family, friends and supporters, many of whom have been with me for 18 years now.
We had over 100 guests at the dinner, and it was a bipartisan crowd. In my campaigns, we go after every vote, and we are always thankful to have so many Democrats and Independents on our team.
I mentioned to the crowd that with rumors of an opponent, we will run the campaign as if it was our first run - grassroots, door-to-door, and speaking directly with the voters about the issues facing New Rochelle and Pelham.
Most importantly, Jean and Michael are excited to hit the campaign trail, and along with our many volunteers, you can be sure we will run the best campaign in the county this year.
Thanks for your kindness and support over the years and for making it possible for me to serve as your County Legislator, which is one of the greatest honors in my life.
