Ulrich announces State Senate candidacy
From the Daily News:
Queens City Councilman Eric Ulrich announced [yesterday] morning his bid to take on Democratic Sen. Joe Addabbo through a YouTube video.
“I will be a state senator that never stops fighting for the middle class,” Ulrich says in the video released just after 10 a.m. this morning. “I’ve watched too many of my friends and relatives pack up and move out of New York because they simply could not afford to live here any longer.”
The video was posted to Ulrich’s new website, which launched this morning as well.
Ulrich, considered a rising star in the New York City Republican ranks and a councilman for the last three years, does not mention same-sex marriage or even his potential fall opponent.
Instead, he focuses on middle-class and business tax cuts. He also says he would push for “investment” in higher education so “young people” like him can stay in New York.
