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
