Fundraiser for Tarik Abdelazim at SPOOL MFG in Johnson City, NY

The event was a success for the Abdelazim campaign, and the supporters that came out to hear a comrade voice in opposition of fracking. It was a success for the artists that were able to have their art auctioned. It was a success for Dr. Steingraber in selling her book and supporting a candidate that shares her views of the woes of fracking with the profit of the book sales that night.

The question that remains, is if the success will follow to the election. But then, that is the question facing all candidates in November.
