Statement from Manhattan GOP Chairwoman Andrea Catsimatidis
on the election for NYC Public Advocate
I want to congratulate Councilman Eric Ulrich on running a well-fought race for Public Advocate. The fact that he came in 2nd place out of 17 candidates shows that the Republican Party is alive and well in New York City! And for the first time in a long time, we saw RED in Manhattan with our victory on the Upper East Side! We need to continue to build on this momentum. The thousands of New Yorkers who voted for him sent a strong message that they are unhappy with the direction this city is taking. His efforts to stand up to the liberal agenda and advocate for the creation of new jobs, as well as stop congestion pricing is something we must continue to fight for. I am proud of our victory, it may seem small, but it is not insignificant. It shows that what we are doing is working. So please help us continue to build our party, block by block, to prepare for the 2020 election cycle.
