"While we all feel disheartened and frustrated by the results of the Presidential election, we must not waste any time wallowing in our fears and concerns. We must get up and work harder, stand up and fight stronger and we must all find the places we can be most effective fighting for the causes and issues in which we believe and against injustice everywhere.
For me, I believe I can be most effective working for you in the City Council -- and that's why I've formed a committee to run in the Special Election to represent Central Harlem.
I hope you will join our campaign as a Founding Member to fight back and make our voices heard. Together we can make a difference. Your support and contribution today will help make it possible – and this possibility really is as important as it is exciting."
