Virginia Perez Fundraiser At Yonkers Polish Center.
Last Tuesday night, a bright and optimistic Virginia Perez, Democratic candidate for Yonkers City Council from the Second District, held a fundraiser at the City’s Polish Center.
Virginia is running against three male opponents in the Democratic Primary on September 15th for the seat that will be vacated by two-term
councilwoman, Democratic Majority Leader Sandy Annabi.
In addition to many friends and supporters, several union leaders, and Working Families Party Chair Pat Welsh, were in attendance. Virginia has the support of the Yonkers PBA, the Firefighters Union, the AFL-CIO, as well as Local 32BJ. She has the endorsement of the Working Families Party, the Independence Party, and the Conservative Party.
Virginia told The Guardian that following the petition-gathering drive, she has been very energized and has continued meeting constituents
to explain her plan for Yonkers, house-to-house, door-to-door, throughout the City’s Second District, and feels very confident that she will prevail in the Primary.
