Democratic Mayoral candidate Sal Albanese is bringing his campaign up to the Catskills. Following a Erev Shabbos tour along 13th avenue, in Borough Park, several weeks ago, Mr. Albanese is set to embark on a two day tour in the Jewish strongholds in upstate New York, where NYC’s Jewish voters reside during the summer.
Mr. Albanese chose, strategically, to expand his Jewish outreach all the way up to the Catskills on the weekend of Shabbos Nachmu, in what has become a trendy tradition of outgoing for most families, even those who remain safeguarding the City during the summer months of July and August.
According to a campaign release, Mr. Albanese will be joined by his wife Lorraine for a full schedule of events starting Thursday evening and going into the late hours of Friday afternoon.
Below is the schedule of events as released by the Albanese campaign:
