Brooklyn- State Senate candidate Simcha Felder and Assemblyman Dov Hikind filed 6,795 signatures with the New York City Board of Elections to create the “Tax Cuts Now” line for the fall elections.
“By voting for Assemblyman Hikind and I on the Tax Cuts Now line, voters will be able to send a message to Albany that they are serious about tax relief” said Felder, who is running in the 17th Senate District, “I thank everyone in the community who showed confidence in me by signing the petition and the volunteers who worked so hard to take our message of tax relief for Brooklyn families to the streets.”
“I am honored to join Simcha on the Tax Cuts Now line this fall” said Assemblyman Hikind, who has served the community in the State Assembly for three decades. “I am thrilled that voters will have the opportunity to send a message to Albany that we need lower taxes, while casting a ballot for myself and a candidate for Senate that I wholeheartedly support.”
“Simcha has clearly hit a cord with thousands of frustrated taxpayers,” said Councilman David Greenfield. “Simcha’s commitment to our hard-working taxpayers is one of the many reasons that the community is uniting behind Simcha for Senate,” concluded Greenfield.
Felder’s grassroots campaign enjoys impressive support from the community. Felder has gathered nearly 20,000 signatures for this election. In addition to collecting 6,500 signatures to create the “Tax Cuts Now” party, he filed 13,000 signatures in July with the Board of Elections to qualify for the ballot.
Simcha Felder is running for the newly formed 17th Senate District that encompasses Borough Park, Flatbush, Midwood, Kensington and Sunset Park. Felder is currently New York City’s Deputy Comptroller for Budget and Accounting. He served the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Kensington and Flatbush in the City Council from 2002 through 2010.
