Julie Menin won
the Democratic Party Primary to represent Roosevelt Island, the Upper East Side
and East Harlem in New York City Council District 5.
🚨 WE DID IT!🚨
The results released tonight and what we’ve seen
of my lead on absentee ballots decisively confirm that I’ll be headed to the
City Council to represent the 5th District!

Ms Menin is
hosting a Thank You District 5 Meet the Candidate celebration 7 PM Friday, July
23 at Good Shepherd Plaza. You’re invited.
While it was fantastic 2C every local elected that touches 5th District
today, most moving was to see
joining in unity after a remarkable campaign 4 all. Great talking issues w
Billy + Chris as usual.

I interviewed Ms Menin last January as she was campaigning at the Roosevelt Island Farmers Market
and Ms Menin spoke with Roosevelt Island residents Joyce Short and Ellen Polivy for a Fireside Chat as well.
Ms Menin’s general election opponent to succeed the current, term limited, NYC Council Member Ben Kallos to represent Roosevelt Island, the UES and East Harlem in NYC Council Distrct 5 is the Republican Candidate Mark Foley.
The General Election is Tuesday, November 2.
