SPEAKING MY MIND

Recently a very nasty man wrote some very nasty things about my campaign and candidacy which was published in a local newspaper. My letter below is in response to this man’s constant attacks and sabotage. The link to the nasty column that was written about me can be found at the very bottom. Please copy and paste it if you want to read it because I will not give this man any more attention. Now that many of you know what I am up against, any donation to Lucretia for City Council-43 CD will be greatly appreciated. Please go visit my Facebook page or go to https://www.nycvotes.org and make a donation today!

SPEAKING MY MIND
I am glad that Jerry Kassar, Brooklyn Conservative Party Chair and chief of staff to State Senator Marty Golden, recognizes me and gave a HUGE spotlight for my political dedication.
Here is the politics101 version of the top reasons why people run for office – 1) because you care about improving your community, 2) you know that your talents and abilities would be applied for the benefit of your constituency, and 3) the taxpayers deserve an honest voice that works for their interests and is accessible.
It is absurd that Jerry Kassar, who has never had the courage to run for office, feels free to judge and criticize anyone who is exercising his or her right to be civically engaged and an agent of change for the community!
While he stresses that I have not succeeded in my attempts for election to the New York State Assembly, Jerry conveniently forgets to mention that it is due to his establishment contingent which vehemently leads the opposition and viciously attacks every one of my political campaigns.
Why so personal, Jerry? It’s like having a stalker who hides in the bushes and does his business (with excitement) while you walk by. Did you notice how I was the most important part of his column last week right after he briefly spoke about the Mayor of New York City! Wow!!
I am the only Republican woman and elected Republican Party official in this City Council race. Contrary to Jerry’s column, I would like to point out that I do win at the polls – I am the Republican district leader in the 46th Assembly District!
District leader is an “unpaid” position, and very dedicated people usually seek this position. I won all of my Republican district leader races, even when I was recently reapportioned out to another district.
My victories are achieved through perseverance, hard work and a fierce determination to help my community in spite of the establishment’s frequent and mean-spirited attempts to defeat me. These Republican leadership victories were bestowed upon me by the hard-working constituents who respect my abilities and share in my enthusiasm for a strong Republican Party.
This year commemorates the 100th anniversary of women receiving the right to vote in New York State. I feel so passionately for suffragettes because I know what it’s like (thanks to Jerry Kassar and his buddies) to be persecuted for “doing the right thing,” and elevating your voice for change.
After 100 years, women have “earned” the right and privilege to create refreshing and innovative opportunities for change, versus more of the same dysfunctional and opportunistic “machine politics.” This is a time to pay tribute to and build up the daughters, wives and mothers of our community with pride and gratitude for women’s contributions to America’s achievements.
I am asking Republican voters to vote for me twice on September 12, once for my re-election as Female Republican State committeewoman (district leader) in the 46th A.D., and again for the Republican nomination for City Council in the 43rd Council District
We are all so tired of politicians who are more concerned about power plays and notoriety than addressing the concerns of the people. I will really listen to you and get things done with my proven track record of commitment and determination.
So far, I must being doing something right to get the establishment so upset.
