Help Curtis beat Mateo

Email Message from Sara Tirschwell 

Dear Friend,  

I am grateful for your support.  I still cannot believe that my campaign is over.  

After months of hard work and raising more money than my opponents combined, I was pushed off the Republican Primary ballot by Fernando Mateo on Wednesday. This was an abuse of power by the leaders of the Manhattan, Bronx and Queens GOP who appropriated your right to decide.  We must send a message to them by supporting Curtis Sliwa,ensuring that Mateo does not represent our party in the general election: DONATE    

Fernando Mateo embodies everything that is wrong with New York City politics: a political insider who was implicated in illegally raising money for Mayor de Blasio and worked behind the scenes to limit freedom by taking democratic choice away from the voters.  Fernando is part of the fundamental problems in NYC that I have been fighting to solve.  

Curtis has publicly and privately supported keeping me on the ballot because he recognizes that it is the People who should decide elections—not political insiders behind closed doors.     

The Republican Party is now left with two choices: Curtis Sliwa, who has always been a gentleman to me and has fought to keep me on the ballot, and Fernando Mateo, who was photographed on the front page of the New York Times with Bill de Blasio due to his involvement in a straw-donor scheme. Fernando’s people thought it would be better for democracy for New Yorkers to have fewer choices.   

Support freedom of choice and fight against those who choose to limit the right of Republicans to select our own nominees.  

Help Curtis defeat Mateo: DONATE    

Thank you, 
Sara Tirschwell

Republican Curtis Sliwa to officially launch campaign for NYC mayor

Republican Curtis Sliwa to officially launch campaign for NYC mayor

Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa will officially launch his long-anticipated bid for the Republican nomination for mayor on Monday morning, his campaign said.

Sliwa plans to use the appearance outside Penn Station on Monday to call on all other mayoral candidates to sign onto a letter demanding Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s immediate resignation.

Sliwa, who registered as a mayoral candidate on Feb. 17, plans to run on a slogan of “Save our City,” the campaign said.

His platform will include the reversal of budget cuts enacted against the NYPD in the aftermath of anti-cop protests last year.

Other campaign priorities include “cleaning up the subway, and bringing businesses and tourism back to New York,” a release said.

Sliwa launched the crime-fighting Guardian Angels group 40 years ago to patrol the subways and the streets in the days when Gotham was overrun by crime.

He told The Post last year that he worries those dark days are rearing back.

“It took us a long time to crawl out of the belly of the beast of the 1970s through 1990s. Bill de Blasio and the Democrats are bringing us back in,” he said at the time.

The longtime New York City fixture and WABC talk-radio host has the backing of the Staten Island Republican Party and Brooklyn GOP, but won’t face an easy primary: The Queens, Bronx and Manhattan GOP committees have all endorsed opponent Fernando Mateo, an advocate for taxis and bodegas.

Financier Sara Tirschwell is also competing for the GOP nod.


2021 Is Our Last Chance

By Vickie Paladino

The title of this article may sound dramatic, but it’s sadly and terrifyingly accurate. The fact is that New York City is now at a point where we’re either going to make some kind of change in how our government is run, or we’re going to continue our rapid slide into bankruptcy, lawlessness, and despair. This is a hard truth everyone needs to come to terms with.

The de Blasio era has been catastrophic for NYC, there’s no denying that. We have seen our economy destroyed, skyrocketing homelessness, open hostility to small business and homeowners, and a crime rate that has spun completely out of control. And all these trends were firmly in place before COVID hit.

Post-COVID, our single-party government took a difficult situation and turned it into a generational tragedy. The incompetence, ignorance, and naked malevolence of de Blasio, Cuomo, and our ruling party was on full display. They immediately and enthusiastically used the excuse of COVID to claim extraordinary dictatorial powers over our lives, and then used those powers to make everything worse. We’ve seen riots, looting, murder, and the total unplugging of our economy. Meanwhile ordinary citizens who resisted these destructive policies were targeted for prosecution, even as the doors of our prisons were swung open to release violent criminals back onto our streets scot-free.

New York is now hemorrhaging jobs, money, and taxpayers as citizens wake up to the fact that red states like Florida and Texas could be better options for people seeking a life of prosperity, security, and liberty. Needless to say, this is unsustainable for our city and our community.

We have one final chance to begin the hard work of turning things around. Our local elections in 2021 will quite literally determine whether our city returns to its former glory, or if we become another Portland, Seattle, or San Francisco — a once great city, now wracked with nightly riots, homelessness and drugs, and utterly paralyzed with corrupt single-party authoritarian rule by a bizarre quasi-religious progressive cult too obsessed with malignant identity politics and hatred of western civilization to solve even the most basic of municipal issues.

This is not an exaggeration. This is the choice we face. That’s where we’re headed. And I’m running for City Council along with other great candidates like Curtis Sliwa for Mayor to help bring about the change we all so desperately need.

It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen overnight. We have a lot of work to do, and we expect a fight every step of the way.

The GOP may not ever be a majority party in New York City — at least not anytime soon — but even relatively modest success in 2021 will be massively significant in the direction this city takes, in terms of desperately needed police funding, crime prevention, economic development, and tax relief for small businesses and homeowners. We must break the monopoly. I hope you’ll join me in our fight.
