Thank you for the hard work you have put in over several months to make our political program a success. You have made countless phone calls, knocked on doors, and distributed literature to mobilize your members on behalf of labor's endorsed candidates. As a result working people across Long Island will have officials in the halls of government who will make positive change for working people.
Each cycle we identify a number of key races that we believe are competitive and we can make a difference. One of those key races in 2019 was the 8th Legislative District in Suffolk County. This was a rematch between Bill Lindsay III and Anthony Piccirillo, a race which was decided by just over 200 votes in 2017. This year was equally competitive. Anthony Piccirillo ended Election Day up by a count of 223 votes with over 600 absentee ballots still to be counted. Stay tuned for the final results as the recount in this race begins on November 19th.
