Everytown (Mike Bloomberg) has made a couple of endorsements for the August 23 primary elections.


In the open seat CD-3 Democrat primary they endorsed Melanie D'Arrigo who they list as a Moms volunteer and who looks like a poster-child Karen. While not endorsed, Nassau Co. Legislator John Lafazan has made gun control a signature issue of his campaign while one of Robert Zimmerman's top priorities is to "combat gun violence."  Jon Kaiman proudly lists himself as a "gunsense candidate" and Reema Rasool pledges that, if elected, she "will aim to pass common-sense gun safety laws to keep our schools, places of worship, and communities safe."  All the choices stink, but I believe the worst two are D'Arrigo and Lazafan.


In the SD-21 Democrat primary they endorsed Kaegan Mays-Williams who they also list as a Moms volunteer.  She is challenging incumbent Kevin Parker who is also antigun and is a violent thug.  The third choice is David Alexis who "has committed to governing with gun sense as a priority."  He is arguably the least offensive only because he has not voted on the issue and has not been endorsed by any gun control group.

Lafazan is currently my legislator and running to be my congressman, replacing Tom Suozzi who has been spending time on his boat. I agree with the assessment. There was something of a mini-scandal involving his campaign. He was writing letters of recommendation on county stationary for college bound students that did unpaid work for his campaign. No work, no letter. Problem centerd around using his official capacity to write letters appearing to have government endorsement.

Honestly I have no idea of the polling here. Lawn signs are all over the place so there is no one standout candidate judging from what I am seeing. I am seeing many Kaiman and Lafazan signs, especially along the roads put up by campaign staffers, but the others are represented too. Funny thing is, polling gives the Republicans a good shot at flipping this newly reconfigured district this year as it brings in the heavily red Massapequa's. If he wins the primary it may be a meaningless win in the long run. Who knows?
