If you live or work in New York City, then come support Stephen Harrison tonight at 7:30, in his last debate against Vito Fossella, the only Republican congressman from New York City.

The debate is tonight (October 24th) at 7:30 at the Shore Hill Senior Center, 9000 Shore Road (by 90th Street), in Brooklyn.

Here is a map

If you are taking public transportation, you can either take the R train to 95 St/Bay Ridge, then walk and turn left onto 92nd street (toward the water).  At 3rd Avenue, the street shifts a little, but stay on 92nd and keep walking toward the water, where you'll eventually find Shore Road.  Turn right and walk over to 9000 Shore Road.  It's around a 10-15 minute walk.


You can take the R train to 86th Street, and then get on the B16 bus toward Ft. Hamilton.  The B16 will drop you off right next to the senior center.

Stephen Harrison needs all your support!  He has been gaining momentum lately, as evidenced by his CQ upgrade and his appearance on MSNBC today, along with his front-page status on Daily Kos yesterday.  

In past debates, Fossella's henchmen have been rude and obnoxious (big surprise there) in the audience.  We need to show that Harrison speaks for us, not Fossella and his Bush/Abramoff/Cheney pals.

This race can be won, but it will require effort from us, the grassroots.  The national party has not given Harrison adequate support, and the press has blown off the race as well.  

Harrison's campaign has raised $100,000, as opposed to Fossella's $1.8 million smear chest.  We need genuine people power to fund this race (a few extra bucks would help to!)

Start by showing your support tonight, at the last debate!

Can't make it?  You can still help by volunteering   or by donating.

Plus you can donate on my Act Blue page also.

Hope to see all NYC Kossacks there!  This race matters!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
