MARQUEZ CLAXTON IS ON THE BALLOT IN THE 31ST DISTRICT!!!!!!!!!

MARQUEZ CLAXTON OVERCOMES THE CHALLENGES TO HIS PETITIONS AND MAKES THE BALLOT IN THE 31st COUNCILMANIC DISTRICT

                                                                                                                                                      August 18, 2009 

Press Statement:   New York City Council candidate Marquez Claxton is placed on the ballot for the 31st Councilmanic District after overcoming challenges to his petition.  Candidate Marquez Claxton states, “The challenges to my petitions were not merely a threat to my aspirations but an attempt by a lesser candidate to disenfranchise legitimate registered voters in the 31st District.  The time and energy spent by my opponents to keep me off the ballot would have been better spent in developing a platform that speaks to the needs of the community.  What we now know is that our message and platform positions pose a threat to those who want business as usual in the 31st District. They failed to eliminate me from the ballot and they will fail at the voters booth.”  Marquez Claxton will continue his hectic, grassroots campaign schedule with much assistance by his endorsers, including but not limited to District Council 37 as well as individual locals 420 (Health and Hospitals Employees) & 371 (Social Services Employees Union), the Community Council of New York, The National Latino Officers Association, New York State Senator Eric Adams and New York City Councilmember Charles Barron.
