ELMONT NY - Democrats selected Michaelle Solages to be their representative in the November general elections for the newly formed 22nd Assembly District. Solages’ win was decisive and may mark a turning point in local democratic politics.
In a letter to Elmont Online Michael G. Hardial wrote in support of Michaelle Solages. “We have worked hard in this community, the struggle has been enormous. Often it has been met with significant resistance from those who try to isolate, divide, and demoralize us. There are those among us whose sole purpose is to polarize us while attempting to both set and control the agenda of this community; thus undermining the continuous efforts of leaders like yourselves. We cannot sit idle and allow such atrocity to manifest itself. “
Milagros Vicente, like Mr. Hardial called for Democratic unity at the Elmont CCC debates on August 30. “This election is not about me” said Vicente. “After this primary regardless of who wins I will support the Democrat…”, and last night Milagros, while still finalizing plans for tonight’s unity rally at the 5th Precinct (7pm) took time out to call the Solages campaign and congratulated Michaelle.
"Local Democrats must rally around democratic ideals this time" said an informed observer.
