Scarsdale Democratic Town Committee Zoom Fundraiser Was Abuzz

DemFundraiserDespite power and internet outages, a Village Board meeting AND a Board of Education meeting, the Scarsdale Democratic Town Committee Zoom Fundraiser was a great success, Tuesday evening, August 11th. The zoom room was buzzing with excitement from Joe Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his VP running mate, announced earlier in the day.

New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, the highest-ranking female in New York State government was the key note speaker, followed by a surprise visit from United States Senator and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

HochulLieutenant Governor Kathy HochulBoth Hochul and Schumer acknowledged the many extraordinary elected officials from Westchester County, in particular Congressman Eliot Engel and Congresswoman Nita Lowey, State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin and State Senator and Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. Both spoke of the importance of Democratic town committees whose members do the footwork for Democratic candidates—getting signatures on petitions, getting the vote out and protecting against voter suppression.
