Our first endorsement this cycle is Todd Kaminsky. Todd is a State Assembly member from Long Beach, and the former federal prosecutor who sent landlord stooge Pedro Espada to prison. Many rent-stabilized tenants live in this South Shore district, so we can play an important role here.
Winning on April 19 will be a bellwether for Democrats in November, so the GOP and the landlord lobby will spend heavily to keep this seat in GOP hands. Tenants PAC has already given $5,000 to Todd’s campaign, with a goal of contributing another $6,000 by April 19. We are also recruiting volunteers (please email firstname.lastname@example.org) for phone banking, door knocking, and Get Out The Vote activity. The stakes could not be higher, and in special elections our volunteer efforts matter more than ever. If we ever want to pass pro-tenant legislation, we need to help Todd win! Please join us on April 15 to meet Todd Kaminsky and help create a pro-tenant State Senate.
