Chris Collins under fire for ‘suspicious’ stock trades


Remembering Paul MacAualy

We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of Mendon Democratic Committee member, Paul MacAulay in December.  The editorial board at the Democrat and Chronicle wrote this piece in his honor titled, “A true believer in justice for all”.  Please take a moment to read it.  Paul’s obituary is posted beneath as well.  Donations in Paul’s name can be made to Campaign for Justice or the Mendon Public Library.

New Leadership Needed for NY 27th District

I find it sadly unremarkable that the man who is said to have compared Sheldon Silver with Adolf Hitler, Napoleon and the Antichrist finds so much to love about Donald Trump. Silver got his just deserts (albeit decades too late, and he and Dean Skelos are but the tip of the corruption iceberg), but both Rep. Chris Collins and The Donald should learn to think before they speak — and, more importantly, to inform their thinking.

Collins was the first sitting member of Congress to hitch his star to Trump by publicly endorsing him and then seconding his nomination at the Republican National Convention. He was also quick to follow Trump’s lead by accusing Khizr and Ghazala Khan, bereaved parents of Army Captain Humayun Kahn, of using their son’s death to advance a political agenda. The public outcry against this diatribe — and countless other crude, biased and outrageous remarks made by Trump and blithely accepted by Collins — should extend to a demand by residents of the 27th Congressional District that we replace this callous individual with a candidate who embraces the Constitution and who will fight for the rights of all of us: candidate Diana Kastenbaum.

We need to revive thoughtful, ethical governance, beginning at the state and local levels. Ms. Kastenbaum stands strong on the issues that affect New Yorkers: jobs and the economy, education, college affordability, healthcare and energy, the concerns of senior citizens, and the environment. I urge you to learn more about this accomplished businesswoman — and to vote for her in November.

House Party for Diana Kastenbaum

Join us for a beautiful evening on July 14th to

Meet and Greet Diana Kastenbaum, our candidate for the U.S. Congress

Diana is an energetic business leader  (owns and operates  Pinnacle Manufacturing in Batavia), who:

  • Defends  Medicare, The Affordable Care Act and Social Security;
  • Supports quality, low cost public education;
  • Believes America should be doing everything it can to be the leader in development of alternative energy and keep our land, air, and water clean;
  • Knows how to grow the economy and put people back to work.

Her opponent, Chris Collins,  was the first member of Congress  to endorse Donald Trump.

He is no more the right person to represent you in Congress than is Donald Trump the right person to  be president.  Help make this his last campaign.

Please join your friends and the Mendon Democratic Committee to meet Diana and learn how we can ensure our community values are represented in Washington.
