Last night was our club’s endorsement meeting for the 34th Senate District. Numerous club members spoke in front of roughly 200 people in support of either Jeffrey Klein or Oliver Koppell, both of whom have a long history of helping our community. In the end the secret ballots were counted, and with Klein’s 96 votes over Koppell’s 38 votes, Klein won the endorsement.
We are excited to commence our petitioning drive. We are carrying petitions for the following candidates:
