Statement from Lucretia Regina-Potter, Republican District Leader 49AD, Assembly Candidate 49 AD

As the duly elected and official Republican District Leader of the 49th Assembly District, I take exception to the recent letter sent by Craig Eaton, to all the Republican Election Inspectors and Coordinators on the 49th AD. The letter, which can be interpreted as an attempt to coerce the loyal and experienced Republican Inspectors who are also members of the Fiorello LaGuardia Republican Organization, into abandoning their club and fill out Inspector applications distributed by Craig Eaton’s minions and fierce enemies of the Fiorello LaGuardia Republican Organization.

I also take offense and reject the poisonous venom spewed by Clorinda Annarumo, the leader of the 46th Assembly District, whose son recently received a job at the Board of elections from Craig Eaton, accusing me and the leadership of this organization of standing in opposition to Craig Eaton and his dictatorial methods.

This is a well orchestrated act under the direction of the chief puppeteer Eaton, in avoidance of what would have been his obligation and best interests to the Republican Party, to undermine my candidacy to the NYS Assembly.

It seems that he, and his minions in the county have no interest in supporting true viable dedicated and dynamic Republican candidates, This has been proven previously in the recent Special Election of the 44th CD race, when the true Republican candidate, not only was refused the endorsement of the party, but the county went on to endorse a Republican candidate of no consequence and certainly not a match for the Democratic candidate, who had been endorsed by State Senator Marty Golden previously.

Their reluctance to ever support my candidacy is a further indication that the county would rather have a Democratic Assemblyman representing the 49th AD.  The Kings County Republican Party has targeted our loyal Republicans in the 49th AD and my candidacy to the NYS Assembly with hostility and envy because we always deliver the highest number of votes and collect more signatures that any other Republican club in Brooklyn. The efficiency of our club is looked upon with disdain and resentment and our results have yet to be equaled.

In the best interests of the Republican Party I have always taken the high road and kept our conflicts and disagreements with Craig Eaton within the Party. Now that Eaton has chosen to openly attack our club and its leadership, I believe that it now my obligation and responsibility to answer back by stating the true version of the facts and not self-serving, fictitious tales.

I will continue to protect the best interests of the Republican Party in the Assembly District that I have represented for two consecutive terms as District Leader, and I will continue my campaign for the election of the first Republican woman to the NYS Assembly from the 49AD.

An Open Letter to all Devout Catholics

Two years ago Pope Benedict XVI in one of his encyclicals stated that one of the functions of the Church is to encourage the faithful to participate in political activities “freely and responsibly”.

As a consequence of that, Edward Cardinal Egan and the Catholic Conference of New York State issued a voters’ guide indicating how candidates for public office and the legislature stand on issues of interest to the church such as ABORTION, GAY MARRIAGES, TAXES, EDUCATION TAX CREDIT, JOB OPPORTUNITIES and other social issues.

Now Cardinal Egan is taking a strong position on the issue of ABORTION by chastising a very popular politician Rudy Giuliani, a well known supporter of abortion, for taking the Eucharist during the New York visit of the Pope.

“The Catholic Church clearly teaches that abortion is a grave offense against the will of God,” said Cardinal Egan.  “Throughout my years as archbishop of New York, I have repeated this teaching in sermons, articles, addresses and interviews without hesitation or compromise of any kind.” This message is very clear and all of you should remember it when you vote! All those politicians that support ABORTION, whether Republicans or Democrats, should not be allowed to receive the Eucharist in our Churches!

Remember that when you vote on November 4, 2008! My opponent, Peter Abbate, is a supporter of ABORTION!

Why I Run

While I wholeheartedly agree with Stuart Mirsky, candidate for the Assembly in the 23rd Assembly District, I would like to add some other aspects of WHY I RUN that he does not mention in his otherwise politically correct article.

First of all, let me state that candidates run for office definitely because they disagree with the standing of the incumbent on issues of interest to them. This is enough to trigger the motivation to run for office in certain people. Obviously, another immediate reason is for the challenger to belong to a different political party.

As for the ability to raise funds is concerned, there is no doubt that an incumbent has the advantage against the challenger. While money is another important ingredient to a political campaign, I have had many opportunities to publicize my candidacy and the issues by working very hard. I have been canvassing my district, and I have been gratified to discover that many voters do not really like the incumbent, but they continue to vote for him because they “have never met the challeger.”

The message to all fellow candidates challenging incumbents is very simple: Work hard, ring doorbells, leave your literature with all the people that you talk to, and in the mailboxes of all the others. You certainly have plenty of time to get around the district. It is cheap, and much more effective than expensive mailing that end up in the wastepaper basket.

Victory is out there at a reachable distance!

Sincerely,

Lucretia Regina-Potter
Assembly Candidate – 49th AD
