Signatures For Fix Washington Party


suozzi2The Suozzi for Congress campaign has submitted thousands of signatures gathered across Long Island and Queens to create Tom Suozzi’s independent Fix Washington ballot line. The campaign collected signatures throughout the district from voters.
“Voters from across the political spectrum are sending a resounding message that something is seriously wrong in our nation’s capital,” said Suozzi. “People have had enough of the finger-pointing, the name-calling and the attacks that candidates lodge at their opponents just to win a campaigns. It has left our government ineffective and unresponsive. The people are crying out for candidates who will discuss the serious issues we face and get things done.”
In New York State, a candidate can create their own line on the ballot if they gather 3,500 valid signatures of a registered voter of any political party who has not already signed a petition during the 2016 election cycle in the third congressional district and submits them to the NYS Board of Elections. The third congressional district covers much of the Roslyn area. The seat is being vacated by Rep. Steve Israel, who announced his retirement from congress earlier this year. The election is on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
