On November 2nd, the same day as the general election for governor and other offices, the residents of District Three will have an opportunity to elect a new representative to serve the final year of the current Council term. The winner of this election will commence service on January 1st and continue through 2011. Yet another election will occur next November for a full four-year Council term.

In this election, Democrats have nominated Jared Rice and Republicans have nominated Peter Parente. I strongly support Mr. Rice, a local attorney and community volunteer with extensive roots in New Rochelle and a genuine passion for public service. I believe that Jared would be a strong, independent advocate for District Three and also a constructive partner in advancing broad city-wide priorities. If you would like to support Jared’s candidacy, please consider attending this event.
