A Message From Lucretia

Dear Friends,

As the conservative Republican Assembly candidate and the Republican District Leader in the 49th Assembly District, Brooklyn, N.Y., I will always pledge to work hard for my neighbors and our community. The people deserve to be represented with fairness and dignity. All elected officials need to realize that public office is not an entitlement; it is a privilege that must be respected. It is sad to state that even with hard work and the best of intentions that I did not hold the Republican line during the recent primary elections.  

Many of my neighbors have told me that the results of the primary election do not actually reflect what the people wanted.  It has been brought to my attention that many voters “presumed success” for me and felt that they did not need to go out and vote because they were confident of my victory Many are insisting that I keep running. That they know I am someone they can trust. In the end it is obvious that the people of the 49th Assembly District are extremely disappointed in their Assembly candidate choices.

The needs of the people have to remain the primary objective! This is especially true for the education of our children, the growth of small businesses and allowing our senior citizens to live with dignity and respect.  The voters of the 49th are faced with a serious dilemma: let things continue as they have been, or make an inappropriate change. Right now, neither option seems satisfactory. They have realized that their needs are once again overlooked for personal political gain.

Having never been a woman to sit on the sidelines and wait for things to happen, I am contemplating what the best thing to do for my community is at this time. We need to look forward to a better tomorrow. We need a good neighbor to work with us. We need a strong independent voice to speak for us. I pledge I will continue working to meet those needs.

Together, I know we can achieve our goals.

Sincerely,

Lucretia Regina-Potter
