Democrat Mike Khader Wins Independence, Green Party Primaries

Major Boost for November; No Republican has won Yonkers citywide race without Independence line since 2003

YONKERS, N.Y. – Mike Khader, Democratic candidate for Yonkers City Council President, won contested primaries for the Independence and Green Parties for the November 7th General Election. Khader was endorsed by the Independence Party in June, but incumbent Republican Liam McLaughlin launched an “opportunity to ballot” campaign for both the Independence and Green Parties (the Green Party does not generally cross-endorse major party candidates).   Khader won a majority of votes on both lines, giving his campaign a major boost going into the November election. No Republican has won a citywide election without the Independence line since 2003.
“I am honored to have earned the trust of these voters, and to be running on the Democratic, Independence, Working Families, Women’s Equality and Green Party lines in the General Election. I want to be a Council President for all members of the Yonkers community, to give our taxpayers the services they deserve.  We told the voters ‘If it matters to you, it matters to Mike,’ and they responded,” said Khader.
Khader reached out to voters of both parties, outlining his commitment to openness and accountability, as well as his commitment to protecting clean drinking water and combating climate change on the local level.
Khader unanimously received the Democratic nomination for Yonkers City Council earlier this year. The General Election is on November 7, 2017.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
