Rising Star to Deliver Keynote at Annual Broome Lincoln Day Dinner

Republican Rising Star Rob Astorino to Deliver Keynote
at Annual Broome Lincoln Day Dinner

The Broome County Republicans are proud to announce that Westchester County Executive and rumored Republican challenger to Governor Andrew Cuomo, Rob Astorino, will be a special guest and Keynote Speaker at the Annual Lincoln Day Dinner on February 28, 2014.

Astorino was re-elected to office in November 2013 by a 12-point margin, running on the Republican and Conservatives lines in a county with a 2-1 Democratic enrollment advantage. Astorino, who is fluent in Spanish, received an estimated 62% of the Latino vote in 2013, and he has built a strong relationship in the African-American community. His willingness to share credit to achieve bipartisan success has become one of his signature strengths.

In 2009, Astorino fulfilled his 2009 pledge to voters and addressed the “tax madness” in a county with the highest property taxes in America. Astorino was able to freeze or cut county tax levy each year he has served, reducing overall spending in the county by 5.2%.  Under Astorino, from 2010-2013, Westchester County has created 27,000 new private-sector jobs.

Additionally, Astorino has stood firmly against a historic federal overreach attempt into Westchester County by President Obama which would make Westchester a national template for a radical social engineering scheme that would give Washington power to dismantle local zoning laws across the nation.

The Lincoln Day Dinner is set for February 28, 2014. Tickets are available for $60 per person, $600 per table, or $1000 for a Premium Sponsorship. Please contact Info@BroomeRepublicans.com or 607-723-8201 to reserve your tickets or for more information.
