The New York Young Republican Club is proud to endorse Alison Esposito for the office of Lieutenant Governor of New York. For over twenty-five years, Esposito served New Yorkers in the NYPD. In 1994, she joined Precinct 70, which covers the neighborhoods of Midwood, Fiske Terrace, Ditmas Park, and Prospect Park South.
After years of serving New York in law enforcement, she has given up that role to answer a new calling of public service in her city and state’s hour of great need. Earlier this year, Esposito spoke not of a red wave, but of a common sense wave when it comes to New York politics. The radical progressive Democrats have become so far divorced from reality when it comes to public safety, rising crime rates, and key everyday quality of life measures that endanger not just all New Yorkers, but also our future as a city and state if things do not turn around soon.
This month, New York Republicans will go to the polls and decide between four candidates to represent our party against former Lieutenant Governor, now Governor, Kathy Hochul. Unlike Hochul, Esposito has spent a lifetime serving rather than talking and cutting ribbons and saying whatever the political moment called for. The most important job of the Lieutenant Governor is to be prepared and to be able to fulfill the Constitutional duties of the Governor of New York if, God forbid, something should happen to the Governor. Regardless of who prevails this month, whether it be Congressman Lee Zeldin, Andrew Giuliani, County Executive Rob Astorino, or Harry Wilson — we all can unite in advance around a qualified and dedicated public servant who gave up her position, title, and career for us: the next Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York, Alison Esposito.
New York and national Democrats like to keep talking about “firsts” and “making history” with their politicians. But we Republicans know that public service is about We The People, not We The Politicians. And this fall, We The People would be best served by voting in public servants and citizen politicians over career politicians by voting in Alison Esposito as Lieutenant Governor. Esposito is an experienced and respected law enforcement expert in an era of rising crime and fading faith in government. She is up for the job, and we are proud to stand by her because she will stand by us.
