“My main goal as Chairman is to unite the Republican Party in Brooklyn, so we can focus on the #1 responsibility of any political organization: electing qualified men and women to public office.

Any disputes or disagreements Senator Marty Golden may have had with our previous Chairman, Craig Eaton, are in the past. It is time to wipe the slate clean.

If rumors of Senator Golden’s commencement of a lawsuit to overturn my election are true, I am deeply saddened.

Senator Golden thought enough of me and my experience to nominate me for Vice Chairman of the Brooklyn Republicans last week. I was — and am still — eager to work with him to build our Republican Party.

And if the other rumors of Senator Golden filing a false certificate of election for his own slate of Brooklyn Republican officers are true, it will be unfortunate. The official Party rules, in effect continuously since 2007, give only the outgoing chairman the power to call and conduct a meeting of the county committee. Standing on a street corner with some friends is not a convention, no matter how few Republicans there are in Brooklyn.

We have important races for the State Assembly and State Senate facing us in less than a month, and the Presidential primary in the spring. This is no time for perpetuating internal party hostilities.

We have elections to win. Let’s get to work.”


Arnaldo Ferraro elected new Brooklyn GOP chairman

New Brooklyn GOP Chairman Arnaldo Ferraro

Brooklyn Republicans met for their County Convention earlier today, and former Assemblyman Arnaldo Ferraro was elected overwhelmingly to chairmanship of the county organization.

Outgoing Republican Chairman Craig Eaton, who has served since May of 2007, nominated Dr. Ferraro and urged Republican voters and elected officials to rally around him.

Ferraro thanked the crowd for their support and friendship, and pledged to work hard to unite local Republicans as they head into the presidential campaign.

The new chairman also singled out Lucretia Regina-Potter,  the GOP candidate for a special election for the State Assembly this November. “We must roll up out sleeves and get to work for Lucretia. She can win, and her election is my number one priority.”
