We laugh for the night, but this race is dead serious. This is one of the most important races of the year and Gustavo Rivera is the best prepared and strongest candidate to clean up Albany.

Gustavo can only succeed with supporters like you. You will be making a huge difference in whether Albany continues to run in the same dysfunctional manner or whether leaders like Gustavo Rivera can properly and effectively represent the Bronx.

Thank you for your contribution and welcome to the team.
