LETTER: Lowey & Engel Support Gashi in CD-16

In a letter to MyRye.com, local Rye residents say to vote for Vedat Gashi in the Democratic primary for US House District 16 next Tuesday, August 23rd. Gashi is running against incumbent Congressman Jamaal Bowman and peer Westchester County Legislator and Rye resident Catherine Parker. A fourth candidate Mark Jaffee, Greater New York Chamber of Commerce, has dropped out of the race.

Nita Lowey and Eliot Engel certainly know what it takes to succeed in Congress, between them they have 64 years of experience in office. They have endorsed Vedat Gashi for Congress. Please join us, Congresswoman Lowey and Congressman Engel in voting for Vedat Gashi in our CD-16 Democratic Primary on August 23rd. We’ve worked alongside Vedat on many things over the past few years and have always found him to be honest, thoughtful, and smart in his approach to thorny issues. He works hard to get things done, on women’s rights, climate, gun safety, taxes and more. Vedat walks the walk and upholds our Democratic values.

We are proud to stand with both of our former Members of Congress, Nita Lowey and Eliot Engel in supporting Vedat Gashi to be our next Congressman.

Vedat will represent all the people of our district. He’ll work with President Biden and our fellow Dems to get the real results we need. Like us, he stands with our allies, among them Israel and Ukraine. He will make sure the money to meet our infrastructure needs comes here and is well spent. Vedat has won the support of organizations promoting gun safety and women’s health because he always does the work to move us forward in these important areas. He understands personally how important it is to reform our immigration laws – as a child he came here as a refugee, fleeing an oppressive regime in Kosovo. Vedat is well known and well respected by the national Dem party – he was one of the lawyers asked by the party to poll watching in Ohio in November 2020 to make sure there were no voting irregularities. For all these reasons and more we are voting for Vedat.

Please join us and VOTE for VEDAT on August 23rd. If you want to know more, his website is here https://gashiforcongress.com.
