Ulrich Endorses Paez for Assembly
Dr. Harold Paez, candidate for New York State Assembly district 23 was formally endorsed by NY City councilman Eric Ulrich today in his campaign to unseat 23 year incumbent Audrey Pheffer.
Dr. Paez, a healthcare professional from Rockaway Park is Vice President of the Rockaway Republicans and has been active over the past few years in a GOP resurgence out of Southern Queens.
Councilman Ulrich who was one of three newly minted Queens Republican councilmen, voted into office in 2009, has been a visible presence in a continuing struggle to bring the GOP back to the State Legislature and Congress representing Southern Queens.
Asked about his endorsement of Dr. Harold Paez for State Assembly District 23, the Councilman stated:
“Harold Paez and his family have been personal friends of mine for several years. In my capacity as Republican District Leader and with the assistance of my Co-Leader Jane Deacy, I believe we have found in Dr. Paez a candidate with the strong principles, grasp of the local issues and civic mindedness to make a positive change for the people of this district. I wholeheartedly endorse him in his campaign to bring accountability back to our dysfunctional state legislature.”
At the meeting, Dr. Paez had this to say regarding his campaign endorsement:
“I am humbled by and grateful for Eric’s endorsement of my campaign. I look forward to continuing to run on the message of bringing fiscal responsibility and common sense back to Albany with the endorsement of our City Councilman.”
Earlier this year, Dr. Paez received the official endorsement of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly (RNHA), the leading Republican Hispanic organization which counts U.S. Senate hopeful, Marco Rubio as a member. Dr. Paez is also endorsed by State Senator Frank Padavan and has been named a “Hero of Reform” by former Mayor Ed Koch in his NY Uprising initiative.
