And so it begins: the race for Westchester DA

We’re 22 days into 2009, and Westchester DA hopeful Dan Schorr already is gearing up to take on incumbent Janet DiFiore. He’s been holding fundraisers around White Plains, but he’s taking his campaign to commuters now:

January 22, 2009 – (White Plains, NY)  Dan Schorr, an experienced prosecutor and candidate for Westchester County District Attorney, announced today that he will begin the 2009 campaign for District Attorney with a week-long train station blitz throughout Westchester beginning Monday, January 26.
During the week, Schorr and his supporters will be handing out campaign literature and talking with commuters about improving safety in Westchester and his plans for restoring strong, effective management to the District Attorney’s Office.  The Dan Schorr for District Attorney campaign will be out in force during the morning commuting hours at the following train stations: White Plains (Monday), New Rochelle (Tuesday), Scarsdale (Wednesday), Mt. Kisco (Thursday), and Yonkers (Friday).
“I look forward to speaking with and hearing from commuters throughout Westchester about how the DA’s Office can repair its relationship with the local police, strengthen its efforts to remove dangerous criminals from our streets, and better protect crime victims, especially victims of domestic violence,” Schorr said.
