A letter from 'Fishers Islanders for Goroff':
Dear Friends, Please join a group of concerned fellow Fishers Islanders for a Zoom event on August 31 at 5:30pm in support of Nancy Goroff in her effort to unseat Republican Lee Zeldin in New York's 1st Congressional District, which includes Fishers Island and Eastern Long Island. The invitation is attached below. Nancy is running to replace one of the most far-right, Trump-aligned ideologues in Congress, Lee Zeldin. On issues concerning the environment, health care, reproductive rights, sensible gun laws, and racial equity, Zeldin's record is extreme. He has voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and to defund Planned Parenthood. He gets a terrible 10% career environmental score from the League of Conservation Voters. The NRA gives him an A rating, and the NAACP gives him an F. Zeldin is one of Trump’s most pugnacious defenders on TV, and he is co-chair of Trump’s NY State re-election campaign. Zeldin is so tied in to Trump that he voted against the bill to re-instate the State and Local Tax (SALT) Deduction, despite the fact that its repeal represented a significant tax increase for most NY families. Nancy is a climate champion and a working scientist. She is a former professor and Chair of the Chemistry Department at Stony Brook University, where she also led a research lab investigating new solar energy cells. She is solutions-oriented, and leads with integrity. If elected, she will be the first female Ph.D. scientist ever to serve in Congress. Zeldin acts as if he represents a deep red district, but NY-01 voted for Obama twice, and the most recent DCCC polling shows Nancy is ahead by 2 points, with Biden ahead by 6 points. Please join us on Monday, August 31 at 5:30pm to learn more about and support Nancy. Nancy will present her vision for the district and then take questions. Fishers Island’s own Pete Malinowski will serve as moderator. You can RSVP and DONATE HERE. The Zeldin campaign received a $2.5 million war chest from the GOP, so we are eager to fundraise for Nancy’s campaign. Please note that all donors will receive an invitation to the event. If you wish to donate an amount that is not in any of the provided Act Blue” categories, please use the “Can’t Attend” category and you will still be sent an invitation. The Zoom link will be sent a few days in advance of the event. Onward! Fishers Islanders for Goroff
