Here’s the announcement:
Independence Party Backs David Buchwald for State Assembly
The Westchester Independence Party has endorsed White Plains Councilman David Buchwald in his race against incumbent State Assemblyman Robert Castelli. Referring to Buchwald as a breath of fresh air, the Independence Party said he would bring the skills of a productive and independent minded legislator to his representation of the people of the newly renumbered 93rd Assembly District. Buchwald, with a physics degree and experience as an economist, a tax attorney and a local elected official, will be in a position as an Assemblyman not just to take positions on bills, but will have the capacity to persuade colleagues to adopt the best policies for New York State. On the White Plains Common Council, Buchwald has shown a willingness to speak up and put the interests of the 57,000 constituents he represents first. For these reasons, the Westchester Independence Party is proud to offer their full support to David Buchwald for the State Assembly.
Dr. Giulio Cavallo, Westchester Independence Party Chair, said “Independent and moderate voters, who look first and foremost to integrity and effectiveness in government should enthusiastically support David Buchwald. He is a Harvard and Yale graduate and fights for the common man – that is exactly the type of person we want representing Westchester.”
David Buchwald is the Democratic candidate in the Assembly race. When he ran for the White Plains Common Council in 2009, Buchwald had the support of both the Democratic and Independence Parties. Castelli ran last time for the State Assembly as the candidate of the Republican and Conservative Parties.
The 93rd Assembly District covers the towns of Bedford, Harrison, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, New Castle, North Castle, North Salem, Pound Ridge and half of White Plains.
