Rally in Bryant Park in NYC


With 28 days to go to the primary, we're stepping it up...and we need you to step up with us!

Tomorrow, Andrew Rasiej, Democratic candidate for Public Advocate, is holding a rally on Wednesday, August 17th at noon in Bryant Park--across from the headquarters of Verizon.

That's not a coincidence, as we're going to be unveiling a report documenting how badly the City's major Internet service providers (Verizon, TimeWarner and Cablevision) are gouging consumers - and how far they are going to buy off politicians to protect their scam.

This is one of our campaign's biggest events, so please stop by the northwest corner of the park (right across the street from Verizon headquarters) to show your support for Andrew and his ideas. If you can't make it, tell your friends. If you CAN make it, BRING your friends!

After the event, we'll be getting our supporters together to talk about volunteer opportunities as we get closer to election day and our Get Out The Vote push. If you're interested in getting involved, don't hesitate to contact our volunteer coordinator, Scot Covey, at Or, you can register online to volunteer.

From the national press to the netroots, we're earning a lot of attention and making a lot of progress through our campaign. But we've got a long way to go before election day. We'll see you at Bryant Park at noon on Wednesday so we can take the next steps.

Make them hear you now!
