Karaoke to the Court! — Fundraiser for Judge Rita Mella Candidate for the Surrogate’s Court

Posted by paulnewell on July 25, 2012

Tonight I will sing a song for justice.  Specifically, I’ll be singing at a karaoke party benefiting Judge Rita Mella’s candidacy for Surrogate’s Court in Manhattan.  I’ll be joined by Councilmembers Rosie Mendez and Margaret Chin, Assemblymember Micah Kellner, my esteemed co-leader Jenifer Rajkumar and many others.  There will be song, laughter and celebration.  And all to support one of the best judicial candidates around.

Surrogate’s Court isn’t well known, but it impacts the lives of many thousands of people every day.  Judge Mella – an addition to being the first Latina ever to run for the court – will bring the kind of unshakeable integrity that the Surrogate’s Court needs.  She is a tremendously qualified jurist.  But perhaps more importantly, she understands how the courts affect the lives of New Yorkers.  We need Rita Mella on the Surrogate’s Court.

So, please come sing with us tonight in the Lower East Side.  I promise it will be the most fun political fundraiser of the Summer.  Details are below, and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/events/282804031826488/.
