Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    NYC Endorsement Roundup

    I want to highlight some endorsements by some of the more liberal and reform organizations in NYC. I should note that I am not in full agreement with all these groups, but their endorsements are worth considering. In many cases they also have links to statements from the candidates that can be resources for you when deciding who to vote for. In many cases these are races that are too often ignored, so your vote can make a real difference which means real change locally. I highlight races where your vote is particularly important for reform in New York.
