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.
