Gershon for Congress (NY-01) Breaks Fundraising Record

East Setauket, NY, October 3, 2018 - The campaign of Perry Gershon, businessman and first-time political candidate, raised more than $1.5 million from individual contributions in the three months ending on September 30. It is the single strongest fundraising quarter in the history of NY-01. The Democratic Nominee in New York’s First Congressional District announced the record-breaking fundraising numbers today.

Said Gershon, “The outpouring of support from more than 41,800 individual donations since the June primary shows how much people want change. I am proud to say that I’ve pledged not to accept money from corporate PACs.”

People are investing in clear values and a vision: hardworking families of Long Island deserve affordable healthcare coverage, regardless of pre-existing conditions, good-paying jobs, and a fair tax plan that keeps money in their pockets. “This cannot be achieved with representatives like Lee Zeldin, who is owned by his corporate funders. With the tremendous power of grassroots support, we will usher in a new era of leadership in NY-01 and across the country,” said Gershon.

Since winning a five-way Democratic primary on June 26, more than 500 volunteers have knocked on nearly 70,000 voters’ doors all across the district. Campaign manager Karl Bach said, “From Bellport to Greenport, our teams of volunteers have been talking with neighbors about Perry’s message. Whether it’s knocking on doors, making calls, writing postcards, or contributing financially, unprecedented numbers of Long Islanders are pitching in to create the change they want to see this November.”

I'm a businessman, not a career politician, so I look at things differently.
Government cannot fix our problems, but I believe we can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
