A Big Week Ahead for NYC

Uncategorized

This week will be a big one for us in New York, especially in politics. What’s happening?

Monday
(disclaimer: we are counting this one for Monday even if the story came out late Sunday night.)
David Paterson announced that instead of this week or next, the Senate’s special session in Albany will be called for November 10th. He vowed to put marriage equality on the agenda. Get involved in our fight for marriage equality at NewYorkEquality.com, on Facebook and on Twitter by using the hashtag #nyequality.

Tuesday

As we have one week until the election, it’s time for the final Mayoral debate between NYC Comptroller & Democrat Bill Thompson and Michael Bloomberg. The debate begins at 7pm. You can watch it on WABC-7 on TV or at 7online.com Thomspon will be hosting a big after party at BLVD in NoLiTa/LES.

Wednesday
We couldn’t leave this one out: World Series Game 1 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. It’s been called the I-95 series. We can’t really give you a link to pick up tickets here, but if you manage to get your hands on the tickets, consider yourself very very very lucky.

Thursday
Phone Bank for Bill Thompson, 6-9pm at the NY Democratic Party HQ, 461 Park Ave South, 10th Floor.
We have phone banks going almost every day until the election, check out the full calendar here.

Friday
It’s the final weekend before the election. Take a few hours to help Democrats GOTV (that’s Get-Out-The-Vote).

Saturday
It’s Halloween. We celebrated early last week, but if you’re new to New York or just want to see some of the best costumes ever produced, head to the 36th Annual Village Halloween Parade

We’ll be raiding the parade to hand out our $8 Bloomberg bucks to remind the crowds that “Eight is Enough.” Meet us at 6:15pm at the corner Varick St & Laight St. More information is available here.
