Apathy is the order of the day


Only 9% of registered Democrats turned out for Tuesday's primary. How sad. Great news for the crooks on the City Council, however, the same ones who conspired with Bloomberg to overturn term limits. Christine Quinn tops the list. Godspeed to the feds who are investigating the slush fund scandal.

San Gennaro story...

Mayoral candidate Tony Avella, sponsor of the bill that would ban horse-drawn carriages in New York City, was the man of the hour on Saturday during the feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy!

The welcome was especially warm at Caffe Palermo, home of world-famous pastries and other treats.
A little drizzle did not deter the enthusiastic crowds from stopping him to say hello. A few times the crowd cheered: "Tony! Tony! Tony!"

Get out the vote! The Democratic primary is Tuesday, September 15 and polls are open from 6 a.m. until 9 pm.

A leader, not a follower


Mayoral candidate Tony Avella speaks out here on a subject dear to his heart: his strong record of animal-friendly legislation. He is the true leader in this arena, unlike others who say one thing and do another--or worse still, do nothing. As the author of the landmark legislation that would ban New York City's inhumane horse-drawn carriage industry, Tony Avella has distinguished himself by standing up for what is right. And he supports all manner of humane legislation, a rarity in the City Council.

This is the season of political posturing. Don't be misled by empty promises. Tony Avella is the real deal. If you vote and you care about animals as well as people, exercise your right and vote for Tony Avella on September 15 in the Democratic primary.
Those City Council members who secretly favor a ban on horse-drawn carriages but are too cowed by Christine Quinn to have the courage of their convictions are pretty well useless on any issue.
ACTION ALERT: Registered Democrats, vote for Tony Avella on Sept. 15 in the Democratic primary!
