Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland) received the unanimous endorsement of the Rockland County Democratic Party as their official nominee for the 38th State Senate District on Thursday night.
The Senator addressed scores of Democratic Party activists at Clarkstown Town Hall and highlighted numerous legislative achievements and promises fulfilled during his first term in the State Senate.
“Two years ago, you entrusted me with carrying our Democratic values to the State Senate," said Carlucci. "I’m proud of my work to achieve those values, such as implementing a progressive income tax code for the first time in New York State, allowing working families to pay the lowest taxes in 58 years, requiring millionaires to pay their fair share, and passing Marriage Equality. We've had important victories, but there is still more to be done to advance a progressive agenda. I will continue fighting to raise the minimum wage, oppose hydrofracking, and protect a woman's right to choose. With this endorsement, I am humbled and honored to have earned your support to continue fighting the good fight and serving the people of the 38th State Senate District.”
Clarkstown Town Clerk Justin Sweet gave the official nominating speech for Senator Carlucci, introducing him as someone who is a champion for Democratic values. Carlucci had served as town clerk prior to his election to the State Senate.
“In less than two short years, Senator Carlucci has helped get New York State moving in the right direction,” said Sweet. “The bottom line is that for those of you who know him, he has always been not just a loyal Democrat, he is someone you can trust and gets results.”
This marks the second Democratic endorsement for Senator Carlucci within just a few months.
In March, the Ossining Town Democratic Committee in Westchester endorsed him for re-election. Their endorsement came shortly after the newly drawn Senate lines took effect as a result of the redistricting process.
The new 38th State Senate District will include the Towns of Ramapo, Clarkstown, and Orangetown in Rockland County, as well as the Town of Ossining in Westchester County.
