Bellavia for Congress Petition Drive
David Bellavia, decorated Iraq War veteran, founder of Vets for Freedom, conservative and Tea Party activist needs our help to complete his petition drive to get on the ballot in this western NY district.
Volunteers are scouring the district, sleeping in their cars, 1 star motels, etc.. getting the 7,000 signatures he needs to get safely on the ballot to run for Congress.
Getting those signatures is critical. The deadline to turn them in is this coming Monday, March 21.
If you can take time to travel to the district to collect signatures please keep reading. If you can’t please consider making a donation to David’s campaign here!
We will be leaving 4 am Thursday morning to make the 6 hour drive to the Southeast corner of district 26 at Dansville, NY.
>From there we will collect petition signatures in the small towns of the southern area and eventually reach the center of the district at Batavia, NY, to turn in the petitions we’ve collected.
- Expect to spend one night in a motel/hotel.

With the resignation of Congressman Chris Lee over tawdry allegations, a new opportunity has arisen to get a true Conservative War Hero elected to Congress to represent New York!
David Bellavia, Iraq War Veteran, Medal of Honor nominee, Silver and Bronze Star recipient, founding member of Vets for Freedom, and author of the book “House to House”, was a candidate in 2008 before the rise of the Tea Party movement. He is NOT a politician. He was a newcomer to politics and his campaign was derailed by the Rhino Republican insiders in western New York.
David Bellavia, who spoke at CPAC in 2008, has thrown his hat into the ring to replace Chris Lee in the special election.
If we are going to push the Republican Party to embrace fiscal conservatism we need to support candidates like David Bellavia who represent our values!
Here’s a map of NY’s 26th Congressional District:
The following is a statement prepared by many of the Tea Party organizations in Nassau County regarding the NIFA takeover of the county finances.
We, as representatives of tea party groups throughout Nassau County, strongly condemn the usurpation of power by the unelected, hand picked czars of NIFA, (Nassau County Interim Finance Authority), from the democratically elected County Executive of Nassau County. This abrogation of the people’s constitutional right to accountable representation can only be seen as a shameless political ploy to discredit Ed Mangano and his administration.
The Tea Party Movement stands for a smaller, less intrusive government that lives within its fiscal means and does not throttle the American entrepreneurial spirit with overburdening regulations and taxation. As such, we supported Executive Mangano’s first step of repealing the unfair energy tax imposed by the prior administration, which had placed yet another burden on the already struggling taxpayers of Nassau County. We also supported his first efforts at cutting County expenditures.
Decades of entrenched patronage, cronyism, back room deals, one-sided public service union contracts and fiscal chicanery, however, have severely hampered efforts to reduce county spending to levels that can be maintained without crushing homeowners and driving away small businesses.
More, obviously, needs to be done.
Having used the letter of the law to seize power, as provided for by the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority Act, (although this draconian measure was not taken in the face of larger deficits and the steady draining of the county’s financial reserves in the prior administration), NIFA is now solely responsible for the financial well being of this county.
We therefore DEMAND that NIFA use their abrogated powers to address ALL the Nassau County budgetary issues by declaring a fiscal emergency and putting everything; budgets, union contracts, pay raises, furloughs, layoffs, contributory health care, tax assessment reimbursements, patronage jobs, etc.. on the table. There are certainly enough items in just that short list to close the budget shortfall this year and put the county on a sounder financial path in the future.
The one thing that NIFA must absolutely NOT do is to use its bonding power to issue additional debt in Nassau County’s name. We, the taxpayers of Nassau County, have proven through our votes in the election of 2009 that we want the financial condition of Nassau County to be improved through less government, less spending, lower taxes and less debt. We absolutely object to any increase in debt to fund the ongoing overspending in county finance.
If NIFA is as serious as we are about addressing the fiscal crisis in Nassau County it is time for them to IMMEDIATELY DECLARE A FISCAL EMERGENCY so that the systemic overspending in County finances can be addressed.
If NIFA is NOT serious about addressing the core issues, as we suspect, then they will continue to hold the finances in limbo, without declaring a fiscal emergency, in an attempt to force our elected representatives to increase taxes and the burden on Nassau homeowners and businessmen.
There is a phrase for that sort of behavior; “Taxation without Representation”, it wasn’t tolerated in the 1700’s and it won’t be today.
