Coming to Assembly District 50: Emily Gallagher

Ms. Gallagher writes:

Dear friends and family,

It’s official!

I’m really doing it.  After 13 years of learning from the best activists and advocates in our community, I’m running for New York State Assembly

When I came to New York City in 2006, I worked three jobs and slept on the floor of a shared 5 person apartment, thanks to my very generous friend, Sarah.  Since then, I worked my way through– and I’ve learned through action and experience. I am a regular person and I’ve struggled in the average New York City way, and together alongside my community, I’ve been able to find my bearings time and again. It’s now time for me to take what I’ve learned from this community and use it to our greater benefit. I believe that New York should be a beacon of progressive action, with North Brooklyn leading the charge.  I want to see more mobilization on environmental justice, climate resilence, gender & racial equity, safe streets, housing and healthcare for all.  I want to push us towards meaningful reforms at school, at work and at the polls. I’ve lived in this state nearly my entire life, and I love it deeply.  I believe we can be better, and I am willing to work for it. To do this I am going to need your support.  We have always been a team, and this year will be no exception.  I’d love for you become a stakeholder in my campaign, and on September 23rd, when we launch, I want you beside me.  Please bring a friend, join our team and attend! You can RSVP by donating HERE! No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but I guarantee you in this race we will need every penny you can spare. This email is a sneak peak– our campaign goes LIVE on the 23rd. You’re the first to know! When we get to launch day, I’ll share with you our new social channels so you can follow along! We have a great, educational campaign planned.

Much love to you,

Emily PS– If you can’t attend, please consider making a donation to help get us started!   You can even set up a recurring contribution! 

So there have you.

Have you seen this?

No, I had not. However, being one who takes the issue of bicyclist/pedestrian safety— and traffic enforcement— quite seriously, I contacted the folks at Permanent records to find out what happened. A very kind fellow named Matthew wrote me back. here’s what he had to say:

Hi Heather… thanks for getting in touch.  I’m a little hesitant to divulge too many of the specifics right now… Meg is recovering from surgery and I don’t want to inadvertently give more details than she is comfortable with.  The accident happened south of Greenpoint on her way up (I believe) Classon, and she was essentially knocked off her bike and then run over by a truck.  Her injuries will likely have her immobile for some time, but all things considered, we’re extremely grateful things aren’t worse.

I’d be thrilled if you’d be willing to share this story and help out our cause here.  You can also let people know that some friends of the shop have already donated some goods, including rare and out of print records, and we’re gonna set up some sort of auction or raffle fundraiser for them… we’ll have those details soon.  And if you’d like more specific details on the actual accident, once Meg is up for it, I’ll put you two in touch and she can get them all to you.

As you can imagine Meg has a big road ahead of her. I suspect I speak on the behalf of everyone reading this tome when I write that I hope she makes a full recovery. Those of you who wish to make a donation so as to help with Meg’s medical expenses can do so via Paypal or by dropping off money, checks and donations for the auction at Permanent Records:

Permanent Records
181 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

Otherwise I’ll post updates, including the details regarding the auction/fundraiser, as I receive them. Stay safe out there folks!
