Domenic Recchia's grassroots campaign collected and formally submitted more than 6,100 signatures of registered Democrats to be listed on the ballot, his campaign announced Friday. The signatures submitted were collected over the course of 35 days from over 250 volunteers. The minimum number of required Democratic signatures is 1,250.
“I’m overwhelmed by the commitment and dedication shown from our supporters across the district, who in the cold and rain helped gather signatures during the last few weeks. I’m also incredibly grateful for the thousands of voters who took the time to sign a petition and help put my name on the ballot,” said Recchia, candidate for Congress in New York’s 11th congressional district. “Over the next several months, we have a lot of hard work to do to help bring commonsense leadership back to Congress, but the early enthusiasm we’ve seen shows me that this is more than possible. We’re going to continue to build our momentum door-to-door, at bus stops, the ferry, grocery stores, where we’ll be talking about the issues that matter to families here in Staten Island and South Brooklyn.”
