Buchwald hopes gun control gets him party nomination

Assemblyman David Buchwald is going hard on gun control in his efforts to distinguish himself from the rest of the Democrat contenders vying to replace Nita Lowey in CD-17.

Example #1:

“… In Westchester, Assemblyman David Buchwald has begun to collect endorsements and make a case for his selection as the democratic nominee … “David and I have been colleagues and friends since he joined the White Plains Common Council,” said [White Plains Mayor Tom Roach]. “His knowledge, perseverance and work ethic have served him and our community well. He has been relentless in advocating for reasonable gun safety rules …” …”

Example #2:

“… I’m not a glitzy guy. I’m not a social media phenomenon. But I am someone who believes strongly in my progressive values. And more importantly, I’m someone who knows that there’s hard work ahead to turn those values into reality. I’ve dealt with tough policy issues and delivered on everything from a law that allows the release of tax returns of politicians like Donald Trump, to co-sponsoring the Reproductive Health Act, to taking pensions away from corrupt government officials, to successfully pushing for tougher gun laws …”

Example #3:

“There are four Democratic candidates in the race to replace longtime Rep. Nita Lowey, and three of them squared off Thursday night at a town hall. Rockland attorney Mondaire Jones, state Assemblyman David Buchwald, and Sen. David Carlucci touched on issues including gun violence at the event at SUNY Purchase. “We need to take some of the measures we’ve adopted here in New York and take them nationwide,” said Buchwald, “So we can have finally a country where people don’t have to go to school fearing that they won’t come home.” …”

Example #4:

“… “I fully support David Buchwald as he runs for Congress,” said Mount Kisco Deputy Mayor Jean Farber. “Throughout his years serving our community, he has fought for our values and stood for greater government transparency and accountability. When it comes to gun violence and climate change, we need leaders who will take action – that’s David.” …”
