Democratic candidate for the NY State Senate seat representing the 25th District Daniel “The Kid” Squadron has picked up an important endorsement in his quest to unseat incumbent Martin “Marty” Connor. According to the Villager, the Downtown Independent Democrats are choosing the change that Squadron represents over Connor’s three decades of experience in office.
Squadron tells the paper that he attributes his DID win to the fact that he’s been knocking on doors and meeting people in Soho, Tribeca and Battery Park City. What’s Marty’s response to that?
The Villager: Connor, though, said the only reason Squadron has time to knock on doors is because he has no other job. Squadron stopped working as a political consultant to devote himself full-time to his campaign.
Meanwhile, Connor said his own work in the State Senate keeps him away from his district.
“The public didn’t elect me to State Senate to skip Albany and the legislative session to knock on doors,” Connor said. Once the session ends in three weeks, “I’ll knock on plenty of doors, believe me,” he said.
