2012 Organizing for America National Military and Veterans Affairs and New York State Director Rob Diamond
Hi, I’m Rob Diamond, the former State Director for the Obama for America Campaign here in New York.
I’m proud to talk to you today about why I’m endorsing Ben Kallos to be the next City Councilmen for New York City’s District Five.
Ben has been a colleague and friend for a number of years and someone whose work I have admired deeply, particularly in the area of voter protection.
Ben's work making sure that citizens can exercise the right to vote has been one of the best work in the state and the country.
Ben helped found the Democratic Lawyers Council and served as the statewide coordinator during its last election cycle.
When Ben joined that organization, seven years ago, it only had fifty members, and now boasts nearly five thousand.
Ben helped pilot a program around New York State for College Democrats helping make sure that our students can exercise their right to vote, the program has been a model for this country, and has been adopted by the College Democrats across the country.
Ben’s running a campaign dedicated to excellence, he’s got the experience, and the desire, and the drive to make sure that every day he’s waking up to improve the lives of New York City’s residents.
That’s why I am proud to support my neighbor, my friend and a great colleague, Ben Kallos to be the next City Councilmen for New York City’s District Five. Thank You
