Meet And Greet With SD-25 Candidate Dan Squadron Tonight

Do you have an interest in local New York politics? Do you like free drinks? Well then I have the perfect event for you, tonight down in the Lower East Side. Young Manhattanite is hosting a meet and greet with Dan Squadron, who is challenging Marty Connor for New York's 25th Senate District. As you know the primary is only one week from tomorrow, so if you live in the district, or are looking to help out some good candidates in the next week or so, then come check Dan out.

From the invite:

Dear Tumblrs, Bloggers, Manhattanites, Brooklynites, Young and Old, etc:

I’m hosting a casual “meet the candidate” reception with free drinks for NY State Senate candidate Daniel Squadron on Tuesday, September 2 at 9:30pm at The Magician on the corner of Rivington and Essex in Manhattan .

The District he’s running for covers Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, DUMBO, western Williamsburg and most of Manhattan below 14th Street other than Greenwich Village. Squadron is a great candidate who’s ready to fight the incumbent disease we know as Albany politics. He has been endorsed by the New York Times, lots of local organizations, Mayor Bloomberg, Senator Schumer and others. You can read more about him here:


With all the hoopla going on in Denver and Minneapolis, we have the opportunity to make change in our own neighborhoods here. This is an election where literally EVERY VOTE COUNTS. Corny? Maybe, but small increases in turnout can swing local elections.

Did I mention free drinks? Hope to see you there. Let me know if you have any questions. Sorry for the late start, he’s debating his primary opponent in Brooklyn earlier in the evening.


I'm not sure if I'll make it tonight, but rest assured, I've met Dan and I like what I see in him and who is a Democrat that is intent on changing Albany, not ascribing to the status quo. He has the support of many prominent people in Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. More importantly, he hopes to have your support next Tuesday, so come and get your questions asked in person tonight.
