Dear Friends,

It has been an honor and a privilege to represent the 52nd Assembly District as your Democratic State Committeewoman and District Leader, and to work closely with Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman and my co-leaders over the past 10 years - Alan Fleishman, Chris Owens, and just recently, Josh Skaller. Together we have fought for our communities and for accountability, transparency and independence in Brooklyn politics.

Recently, Assemblywoman Millman announced that she is not seeking re-election. I am running for her seat with her strong support, for which I am profoundly honored and grateful. I am also proud to have the support of Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez, and NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, to name two others who have endorsed me.

I ask for your continued support in a new role - that of New York State Assemblywoman. To do this, I will need your help financially and with "boots on the ground" - petitioning, leafleting, and knocking on doors - to bring our message of reform, accountability and humanity to Albany.

Please use the features on this new website to let me know how we can work together for victory in this election for state Assembly.

Thank you for your support.

Best,

Jo Anne
