Kristin Davis, the Libertarian Party's nominee for New York City Comptroller, has thanked the Libertarian Party of Queens County, for its support at the New York City Nominating Convention held on April 9, 2013 at which time she received the nomination and afterward for promoting her campaign. On Tuesday, July 9, 2013, a team of over 30 volunteers hit the streets to obtain the required number of petition signatures that will secure a place on the ballot for Ms. Davis, who may end up facing Eliot Spitzer, a former client of the escort service she once owned. Mr. Spitzer is seeking to become the Democratic Party's nominee for New York City Comptroller. This Saturday, Kristin Davis will attend the General Membership Meeting of the Libertarian Party of Queens County, the largest and most active chapter in the New York Libertarian Party, to thank its members in person.
Dr. Tom Stevens, LPQC Political Director, said:
Kristin Davis is a member and good friend of the Queens Libertarian Party and has been for some time now. I appreciate the loyalty she has shown to our chapter and the help she has offered it. At the New York City Nominating Convention, Ms. Davis received the overwhelming support of Queens LP delegates in her bid to obtain the nomination of the Libertarian Party for New York City Comptroller. She is very popular with our members, who respect her professionalism and intelligence.
Matthew Kelly, Secretary Pro Tem of the Libertarian Party's New York City Nominating Convention held on April 9, 2013 at the New York Irish Center, stated:
I took the Minutes at the New York City Nominating Convention and I can confirm that by a 2/3 vote the delegates in attendance gave the Libertarian Party's nomination for New York City Comptroller to Kristin Davis. The Minutes have since been published and are available for anyone who wishes to review them.
It is my understanding some elements in the Libertarian Party opposed to Ms. Davis, formerly known as the Manhattan Madam, attempted to hold an illegal nominating convention on June 11, 2013 at which time a handful of people declared Hesham El-Meligy, a Muslim born in Egypt and a Steering Committee Member of the New York Neighbors For American Values Coalition, to be the LP's nominee for Comptroller. The results of that "rump" convention are null and void and have been unanimously rejected by the Queens Libertarian Party.
Kristin Davis is the Libertarian Party's nominee for New York City Comptroller and nothing can or will change that.
The General Membership Meeting of the Libertarian Party of Queens County will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at VFW Post 4787 located at 19-12 149th Street in Whitestone, New York.
