STATE SENATE CANDIDATE DR. LIVIU SAIMOVICICALLS FOR SHELLEY MAYER TO DENOUNCE“DEFUND” AND “ABOLISH” POLICE MOVEMENTSAMID SPIKE IN VIOLENCE ACROSS STATE

Rye, NY–June 10th, 2020… Dr. Liviu Saimovici, the Republican and Conservative Party candidate for New York’s 37th State Senate District, called on Senator Shelley Mayer to denounce the “defund” and “abolish” police movements amid a massive spike in violent crime across the state.

“Senator Shelley Mayer has remained inexplicably silent on the efforts to ‘defund’ and ‘abolish’ police departments,” said Dr. Saimovici. “Amid a 414% increase in shootings week-to-week from last year in New York City, her constituents deserve to know if she stands with lawlessness or with our law enforcement agencies.”

“Will Senator Mayer stand with our local law enforcement agencies and for public safety, or will she cave to radical elements within her party? Voters in the 37th Senate District have a right to know,” concluded Dr. Saimovici.
