In light of the gathering earlier this month outside the Trump National Golf Course in Briarcliff Manor NY, not coincidentally on the evening of the NYS GOP fundraiser, it’s important to state on this page what I trust is apparent to all residents:
Westchester County is home to a diverse population with many ideologies and we are stronger for that reason.
Last week, President Trump’s followers arrived for a New York State GOP Fundraiser, and the ultra-nationalist white supremacist ‘Proud Boys’ joined them acting as security. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the Proud Boys as a hate group. Proud Boys members are being charged with crimes against our country stemming from the January 6 riot in Washington and are actively working to sow chaos and advance their twisted ideals here in our community
Westchester Democrats call on Westchester GOP Chairman Doug Colety and other members of the Westchester GOP to commit to working against the efforts of the Proud Boys and other white nationalists groups here in Westchester County.
.Every Westchester resident must decide if their party and candidates for office stand with or against hate groups. The people of Westchester deserve to know.
