Statement from NYSDC Chair June O’Neill on Tonight’s Democratic Victories

New York State Committee Chair June O’Neill issued the following statement on today’s Democratic victories:

“Today, New Yorkers took a stand against the Republican Party’s failed policies.  With the help of volunteers and supporters across our state, New York Democrats joined their fellow Party-members across the country in making history.

After 40 years of Republican rule, Democrats are back in control of the State Senate and we can finally say – help is here, and change is coming. That change will go all the way to Washington as the new members of our Congressional delegation take their place on Capitol Hill, working along side our new Democratic President – Barack Obama.

I couldn’t be prouder of our newly elected Democratic leaders and of all the hard-working people across the state that helped them rise above their Republican opponents.

Over the coming months, New York State Democrats will work in partnership with our Governor, David Paterson, Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, to expand policies that benefit our working families, and ease the burden of the current economic crisis.

We have turned the page and are looking forward to a brighter future.”
