I am writing to endorse Sarita Bhandarkar for election as Assemblyperson.
I have known Sarita for many years and was a colleague of her in a local law firm. She is a hard-working child of immigrants who succeeded by pursuing an excellent education and developing skills in her teaching career and law practice. She is an extremely caring and concerned individual, a tenacious representative for our seniors, and a standout member of our business community.
I am a retired New York City Police Officer and I have found Sarita to be supportive of the police and she stands for law and order in our community. She is not beholden to the Governor, the Mayor of New York City, or to any Representative to Congress. Her decisions will ensure the safety of our neighborhoods and our families.
I have seen her opponent‘s outrageous, fearful smear campaign and it‘s sad to see a public servant stoop that low. His lies are incendiary and should be ignored. Sarita will be an excellent Assemblyperson and I know that she will fight for what the people of the District want.
