I #standwithAli because he is a strong man of conviction and has the courage to be an agent of change. When my BaBa believes in a person or a cause, you can count on him to remain tenacious and steadfast.
Supporting community leaders who are not affiliated with the Democratic Party has been a nightmare, and most politicians would have avoided this. Not Ali. In the past election, he supported Mayor Randy Casale, an Independent, because Randy is doing an outstanding job for the City of Beacon. He supported Dutchess County Executive, Marcus Molinaro, a Republican, because Marcus has a vision for Dutchess County that has proven to be progressive.
The road ahead will continue to be tough for my 29 year old son; but with your support at the polls, he can be elected. On Tuesday, September 12, vote for a man with courage and conviction. Vote for a man who believes in the people of Beacon and will strive to do whatever he can to make positive changes. Vote for a man who does not cower under pressure.
In the words of Spike Lee, "Do the right thing." A vote for Ali T. Muhammad is a vote in the right direction.
