New York State Senate candidate and former Rye Councilwoman and Deputy Mayor Julie Killian has opened her official campaign headquarters in preparation for the upcoming District 37 Special Election on April 24.
The office is located at 335 Columbus Avenue, Tuckahoe.
“It is my mission to bring change to Albany,” Killian said. “New York has the most corrupt state government in the country and Westchester County receives the least school aid in New York State, so it is no surprise we have among the highest property taxes in the nation. We must send people with fresh ideas and fresh perspectives to state government to objectively address the rampant corruption, stop wasting taxpayer money, and prioritize the programs that our citizens desperately need, like prevention, treatment and recovery funding to address the growing heroin and opioid epidemic.”
“My opponent was a lobbyist, a top aide to two Senate leaders who both went to prison and is currently a State Assemblymember who defended the Assembly Speaker’s cover-up of the abuse and harassment of young women. Shelley Mayer can’t change Albany. She is Albany,” Killian said. “Westchester families can’t afford Albany corruption any longer. I will work hard each and every day to fight for the change Westchester families deserve.”
Killian will run on the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party lines in the Special Election for New York State Senate District 37 on April 24th. Senate District 37 includes the towns and municipalities of: Armonk, Bedford, Bronxville, Crestwood, Eastchester, Harrison, Katonah, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, North Castle, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye City, Rye Brook, Tuckahoe, White Plains and Yonkers.
