Mattera Qualifies for Brooklyn Race…

Some good news for the Green Party in NYC

Green Party Candidate Ready to Debate Markowitz

The Gloria Mattera for Brooklyn Borough President Campaign handed in almost 8,000 independent nominating petition signatures to the New York City Board of Elections at 10:30am Tuesday morning. 4000 signatures are required for the office.

“These signatures represent grass roots support for my campaign to bring open government to Brooklyn,” said Mattera. “I look forward to a vigorous public debate with Marty Markowitz in the coming weeks on the issues most critical to the people of Brooklyn, including affordable housing, support for public schools, responsible development, and a healthy environment.”

Dozens of volunteers gathered the signatures in Brooklyn over the past six weeks. Petitioners handed out leaflets and discussed community issues with residents.

“This is the easiest time I’ve ever had getting signatures,” said Maryianne Jackson from Prospect Heights. As soon as I told people Gloria was fighting the Ratner development, they were ready to sign.”
