MANHATTAN - Today, Dan Quart for Manhattan DA announced filing more than 8,000 petition signatures with the Board of Elections to qualify for the June primary.
Over 70 of the campaign’s own volunteers collected signatures across Manhattan, including in Washington Square Park, Chelsea, Union Square Park, StuyTown, Marble Hill Houses, the Upper West Side, East Harlem, Central Harlem, Morningside, Washington Heights, Inwood, Lenox Hill, Kips Bay, Chinatown, Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown East, and Dykman Station.
“Our campaign ran a grassroots, volunteer-only petitioning program, said Quart Campaign Manager Leslie Joy. “In three weeks, our 70+ volunteers collected 8,000 signatures from voters. What we heard while collecting those signatures is that people are ready for a fairer and safer Manhattan, and they see Dan Quart as the candidate with the values and the experience to do just that.”
With less than three months until the election, the campaign will continue to scale it’s field program to hold safe, quality conversations with voters across the borough.
