Please see below a note from Judge Helen Blackwood thanking the County’s district leaders for gathering petition signatures.
Dear District Leader:
I am writing to thank you for having carried petitions for me during this election season. I could not have done it without you!
Those Petitions, which were filed with the Board of Elections, included many more signatures than the minimum requirements, so there was a cushion of safety in the event of any challenges. Happily, no challenges were made, but we were prepared nonetheless.
Through your efforts, my name appears on the ballot as one of Democratic nominees for the position of Westchester County Court Judge in November 2015. I cannot tell you how proud and happy that makes me.
I thank you for your contributions in this process.
Very truly yours,
Helen M. Blackwood
