PREFERRED CANDIDATE – MAYRA LINARES – DEM

Age: N/A
Occupation: Former Citizen Services Representative, NY Department of State
Education: N/A

Mayra Linares is running for the open seat for Assembly being vacated by her father, Guillermo Linares. Mayra Linares is a former small business owner and has served as a district leader, and was involved in the selection of civil court judges.  She used her position to ensure the merit of the individuals selected. In her position at the New York Department of State, she served as a liaison for the Latino community. Linares supports the entirety of Citizens Union’s reform agenda, including state campaign finance and redistricting reform. Regarding judicial reform, having selected judges as a district leader, she supports merit-based appointment of judges. She also strongly supports election day registration, having seen many voters turned away at the polls. Regarding other issues of importance to her district, she supports lessening burdens on small businesses, increasing parental involvement in education, more arts programs in the schools and increasing public safety. Citizens Union believes that Mayra Linares will be an advocate for reform in the Assembly, is committed to serving her community, and has the potential to be an effective legislator.  We therefore support her candidacy.
