The campaign for Socialist Equality Party candidate Bill Van Auken for US Senate in New York will open its headquarters in New York City on Sunday, July 9 with an open house and meeting to discuss the SEP’s program and to launch the drive to place the party on the ballot during the petitioning period that begins next week.
The open house will begin at 2 p.m. and last until 5 p.m. The candidate will be speaking at 3 p.m. There will an opportunity to discuss in some detail our plans to petition to place the SEP on the ballot in New York for the November election in which Van Auken will present a socialist alternative to the pro-war, big business candidates, Democratic incumbent Hillary Clinton and whatever candidate is chosen by the Republican Party.
The petitioning period begins on July 11 and concludes on August 22. New York state election law requires a minimum of 15,000 signatures of registered voters to achieve ballot status for candidates who are not supported by the Democrats or the Republicans.
The office is located at 23-03 45th Rd, Suite 401, in Long Island City, Queens. It is three subway stops from Grand Central in Manhattan at Court House Square-45th
Rd. on the #7 line. The entrance to the building is right at the foot of the stairs of the elevated train station.
It is also around the corner from the 23rd Street-Ely Ave. stop on the E line.
