Good stuff, My friend Jennifer Maertz lost, but she lost to a quality candidate, Bridget Fleming, who has some heavy lifting to unseat east end legend Ken LaValle. The voters have chosen Ms Fleming, who won, fair and square.

This is grassroots in action with little harm done. Jennifer Maertz followers know that Bridget Fleming reporesents Democratic core principles and they and Ms. Maertz will be joyfully welcomed and embraced into a stronger and more aware Suffolk Democratic Party. This primary has actually made us all stronger and more committed to be agents of bipartisan change for the benefit of all New Yorkers.
