Entire Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee Reacts to Mailing;
Disgust at Transparent Attempt to Confuse Voters by Using Profound Tragedy to Garner Votes
Mount Vernon, NY — The Mount Vernon Democratic Party wants to alert the Mount Vernon and Westchester community to the divisive mailing recently sent on behalf of District Attorney candidate Tony Castro by Damon K. Jones who recently moved to Mount Vernon from Greenburgh and is in no way affiliated with the Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee or any other reputable Mount Vernon organization.
the mailing implies that the Democratic Party is responsible for the mailing by using the name “Mount Vernon Democrats”. The Mount Vernon Democratic Party want to make it clear that the Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee is in no way affiliated with this mailing and is appalled by the brazen, unethical methods chosen by Damon Jones, someone the party defines and regards as an interloper. The Mount Vernon Democratic Party assert they would never use a profound community tragedy (involving the death of off-duty Mt. Vernon Police Detective Christopher Ridley) for winning votes and they unanimously admonish Tony Castro for allowing his name and image to be a part of such a mailing.
The Mount Vernon Democratic Party were adamant about making it crystal clear that the entire Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee fully supports the re-election of Janet DiFiore for District Attorney.
Janet DiFiore along with members of the Democratic City Committee and Mount Vernon community will be present at a press conference to be held in Mount Vernon, Friday, September 4, 209, at 10:00 am to discuss this transparent attempt to confuse Mount Vernon voters.
