Reform Chair Capano: "Jerrold Nadler is a typical career politician whose only goal is to rev up his far-left base with threats of presidential impeachment"
The Kings County Reform Party endorsed Republican Naomi Levin for the 10th congressional district, which includes parts of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, and Borough Park, as well as parts of Manhattan. Levin will appear on the Reform, Republican, and Conservative party lines against incumbent Jerrold Nadler in November.
Brooklyn Reform Party Chairman Bob Capano stated, “Naomi Levin offers a distinct choice to voters in this race. She works in the real-world as a software engineer, and understands that the extreme polarization of both political parties hinders cooperation to implement common sense solutions to issues affecting our nation. The incumbent, Jerrold Nadler, is a typical career politician whose only goal is to rev up his far-left base with threats of presidential impeachment.”
Levin, the daughter of Jewish refugees who fled a communist regime said, “I am thrilled to have the Reform Party nomination. We agree that people in New York City deserve leaders who care deeply about issues that are important to them, and not just partisan politics. I will work with the congressional majority and get the help our city needs from Washington.” Levin works at a successful New York based technology company and earned a dual degree in Computer Science and Biology.
Curtis Sliwa, Chairman of the NYS Reform Party said, “In this race, Naomi Levin will offer a strong contrast to Congressman Nadler’s politics as usual. Her ability to speak four languages will allow her to better connect with residents across her district and our city. Her perspective as a millennial will inspire more residents to get involved in the process and we are proud to endorse her.”
In other Brooklyn congressional endorsements, the Kings County Reform Party endorsed Democrat Jessica White in the 8th congressional district to take on incumbent Hakeem Jefferies. The district includes Canarsie, East New York, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Coney Island, as well as Howard Beach and Ozone Park in Queens. White is a retired public school teacher and community leader.
In the hotly contested 9th congressional district, the Reform Party endorsed independent Joel Anabilah-Azumah. The incumbent, Yvette Clarke, also faces a Democratic primary. The district includes Brownsville, Crown Heights, Flatbush, Park Slope, Sheepshead Bay, Marine Park, and Gerritsen Beach. Anabilah-Azumah manages his own transportation agency.
The Brooklyn Reform Party was officially formed in January. Prior to this, the borough’s Reform Party candidates were selected by the state committee. Capano noted that his committee will now focus on selecting candidates for Brooklyn state senate and assembly races.
The Reform Party supports term limits for all elected officials, initiative and referendum, and non-partisan elections. They represent the interests of voters who are concerned with out-of-control spending, growing budget deficits, an unsustainable national debt, as well as gross mismanagement in government and unethical behavior from our elected representatives. They espouse practical answers for the challenges we face in the belief that good policy benefits the national interest, and not select special interests.
