Many of us know and like Julie Killian from her twenty-plus years in Rye, her role for six years on the City Council, and her work in starting RyeACT. It is important that we get out and vote for her on April 24 for State Senate.
For me, the primary reason to elect Julie is that she is a highly knowledgeable candidate who, in office, will fight and vote for what makes sense for her constituency, fearlessly and free from other obligations. She will not be just one more member of the Albany political establishment.
More specifically, Julie knows New York spends too much, taxes too much, and wastes too much.
She will fight to change the school aid formula and to move Medicaid costs back to the State, which would lower our property taxes.
Julie cares deeply about gun safety issues and believes we must have common sense gun control including keeping guns out of the wrong hands, universal background checks, and raising the age to buy a firearm to 21.
A chemical engineer with an MBA, she is a mother of five who spent a decade on Wall Street and then served in local government on the Rye Council and as Deputy Mayor, and started the substance abuse not-for-profit, RyeACT.
She is smart, accomplished, passionate, and a new voice who knows us like only a citizen of Rye can.
Please vote for Julie Killian on April 24. If you would like to learn more about her, visit www.juliekillian.com, or Killian4Senate on Facebook and Twitter.
