Our 2018 Democratic Candidates
On The Ballot
The Garden City Democratic Committee is currently going door to door, visiting registered
Democrats to collect signatures to help qualify the 2018 candidates on the ballot.
New York State Election Law requires all candidates to submit a minimum number of
signatures in order to qualify for a ballot position in November. It is the petition process that
establishes the need for a September Primary.
Please help by signing when your Democratic volunteer stops by with the petition.

Also running for the Gubernatorial nomination is actress and activist Cynthia Nixon. As for why Nixon is running, she says"New York has become the single most unequal state in the country. The top 1 percent of New Yorkers earn 45 times more than the bottom 99 percent. Black and Latino families in New York still earn much less than white families. Women still earn much less than men."

Possible Cuomo/Nixon Primary for Governor in September
Ask not, what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country!
John F. Kennedy January 20, 1961
I’m running for governor because I love this state. New York is the only place I’ve ever lived, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But I know that we can do better. We need a New York that works for all of us – a New York for the many, not just the few.
Should Nixon file the requisite number of petition signatures required by New York State Election Law, there will be a Primary to decide the nominee on September 13.
The New York Democratic Party designated Governor Andrew Cuomo for a third term with a resound 95% of the delegate's votes.
Under Andrew Cuomo’s leadership New York is once again the
nation’s beacon for social progress. We have a stronger economy,
a cleaner environment, a fairer criminal justice system, and more
high school graduates attending college than ever before.
We have conserved more land, enacted a more progressive tax code, and launched the most ambitious infrastructure program in the country rebuilding LaGuardia and JFK airports, Penn Station and the new Mario Cuomo bridge.
We have also made historic investments in education, healthcare, and economic development. Upstate New York is no longer treated as the forgotten stepchild of Albany.
