Democratic State Senate Candidate Mike DiSanto has released the following statement:
(BROOKLYN, NEW YORK) MARCH 21st, 2010 – Mike DiSanto, Democratic candidate for State Senate today joined elected officials and community leaders in expressing his support for Joe Lazar in his bid to represent the 44th City Councilmatic district at a rally on Bay Parkway.
DiSanto formally endorsed Lazar calling him a candidate who cares about the needs of the middle class.
“The middle class in this city have been forgotten,” said DiSanto. “We need to fight for the working families in Brooklyn who are the lifeblood of this city. As a fourth generation resident of South Brooklyn, I believe that Joe Lazar shares my passion for revitalizing South Brooklyn and recognizes the need to put education first again, to make sure that families can afford to continue living here, to create jobs, to protect our seniors and to fight for the funding we desperately need for our communities.”
DiSanto urged all people in the district to come out and vote for Lazar in the special election on Tuesday, March 23rd.
“Government is about serving the people – to make people’s lives better, something that too many politicians have forgotten. Joe is truly a man of the people.” he added.
DiSanto is running for the State Senate seat currently held by Republican Marty Golden, which include parts of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay and Marine Park. If elected, he’d be the youngest member of the State Senate.
We imagine Senator Golden is not pleased…
