The Executive Committee of the Manhattan Republican Party met last evening to endorse candidates for Senate and Assembly races at the Metropolitan Republican Club on East 83rd Street. County GOP Chair Andrea Catsimatidis said, "we have a strong ticket for the upcoming election cycle led by our gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro. The candidates we have endorsed tonight represent the fabric of the Manhattan GOP; young, dynamic individuals who are running because they are sick of the corruption in Albany being led by career politicians."

The Candidates include:

New York State Senate

Anthony Arias, SD 26 (Lower Manhattan & Western Brooklyn) - A graduate of George Washington University, Anthony is a successful entrepreneur who owns 2 business in New York. A member of Community Board 1 and the Greenwich Village/Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, Anthony has been an activist for the community and small businesses in Lower Manhattan. "I am running to empower small businesses and the New York City residents who have burdened by over regulation and lack of transparency." 

Pete Holmberg, SD 28 (Upper East Side & Midtown East) - As a public relations counsel, Pete guided many private companies through the fundraising process and handled numerous crises. In his current role as a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson with Keller Williams NYC, Mr. Holmberg has a front row seat to the anxiety that is plaguing people who are contemplating a major investment in the future of Manhattan. "New York City is the great love of my life," says Pete Holmberg. "This town gave me the opportunity to actually be myself, this town gave me tremendous opportunities, and now this town is getting hung out to dry by the Democratic Party. 2019 is the year to fight, and I couldn't be more grateful and proud to have the endorsement of Chairwoman Catsimatidis and the Manhattan GOP."

Melinda Crump, SD 31 (Harlem, Upper West Side) - Melinda has a degree in marine sciences and works for a privately held financial company. She has spent time working in microbiology and genetics research and volunteered for a non-profit campus ministry outreach. "I have seen my neighborhood in Harlem deteriorate over the past 7 years, and I am running to change the long-standing problems caused by mismanagement in Albany."

New York State Assembly

Daby Carreras, AD 68 (East Harlem) - A private wealth manager from East Harlem, Daby has been an activist in his community for over a decade. "I am running because the major concerns in our community, housing, homelessness and unemployment are simply not being solved. Keeping families in perpetual need can never cure our community from poverty and destitution. We are in need of services, better transportation and government transparency. I understand the complexity of our diverse community and can bring that knowledge to Albany."

Bryan Cooper, AD 74 (East Village) - A small business owner and independent contractor, Bryan recently graduated from the NYPD Citizens Police Academy and is a member of the Office of Emergency Management CERT Team. "In Albany, I want to continue my work as an activist fighting for quality of life issues, advocating for tenants' rights, small business owners and seniors."
