The Democratic and Working Families party candidate for New York’s 21st Congressional District will be in Watertown today to talk about his proposals to “help secure the rights of women and ensure they have the same opportunities as men,” according to a news release about the event.
Aaron G. Woolf, a documentary filmmaker with a home in Elizabethtown, will appear in front of his Watertown office at the Masonic Temple, 242 Washington Street, with New York Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell, D-Theresa, an as-yet-unnamed “Oswego State Female Student Working Minimum Wage Job” and more than a dozen local women who support his platform.
Following the press conference, Mr. Woolf and the other speakers will be participating in a phone bank, speaking to women in the district about issues that matter to them, according to the release.
Mr. Woolf is running against Republican and Conservative Party nominee Elise M. Stefanik, a former White House aide who lives in Willsboro, and Matthew J. Funiciello, a bakery and cafe owner from Glens Falls.
The three candidates are vying to replace Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, who is not seeking re-election.
According to the Sunlight Foundation’s Political Party Time, Mr. Woolf is scheduled to attend an evening reception at the Washington, D.C. offices of Bryan Cave Strategies, a law firm that consults on regulatory affairs, public policy and legislation, on Sept. 8.
The guest list includes Mr. Owens and Rep. Jim Hines, D-Conn., as well as Jeff Berman, Jim Boland, Linda Daschle, Carol and Peter Kirby, and Susan McCue.
Individual contribution levels to attend the reception range from $250 to $2,600.
