New Rochelle GOP Press Release:
New Rochelle, NY- A coalition of New Rochelle City Council members have expressed their shock and dismay at the actions of a group of their politically motivated colleagues who have decided to deny the voters of District 3 the right to choose their own representative through the Nov. 2nd special election process.
“These Council members, led by Mayor Noam Branson, are exploiting a tragic situation for their own political benefit to the detriment of city residents" said Councilman Richard St. Paul. "Our hearts go out to Mrs. Stowe for her tragic loss, and have no doubt she is being exploited for political gain.
As the only African-American member of the Council, I feel strongly that the minority voters who comprise most of District 3 should not be disenfranchised and treated as second-class citizens.
Frankly speaking, I suspect these political opportunists would not have attempted this in another council district.”
“The business of the people is serious. There is no place for political games in these challenging times,” said Councilman Lou Trangucci.
