Former President Bill Clinton attended a fundraiser in Nyack Monday night for Democratic Candidate for County Executive David Fried. Tickets were $250 and many Democratic Party members attended to hear Clinton’s further endorsement of the candidate. U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand released a statement Monday informing Democratic voters that she would be backing Fried for County Executive, stating that his experience as a judge gives him the integrity to make the necessary decisions to solve Rockland’s financial crisis. Fried will face Republican Legislator Ed Day on the November 5th election. Day received the endorsement of former Democratic Candidate for County Executive, Vladimir Leon, who will hold a press conference later today. Recently former New York Governor George Pataki also added his name to Day’s list of endorsements, stating that the candidate’s innovative programs and leadership are what Rockland needs to move forward.
