Lujan endorsed by progressive group in run for OC Legislature

Kevindaryán Luján, who is seeking to represent the City of Newburgh and part of the Town of Newburgh in the Orange County Legislature, has been endorsed by Run for Something, a national organization set up to support progressive political candidates under 35.

Lujan, who last month bested Omari Shakur in a Democratic Party primary for the Legislature’s District 4 seat, was among a slate of 37 new candidates nationwide endorsed by Run for Something this week. The organization’s leadership is filled with veterans from campaigns by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and other Democratic politicians.

“Run For Something is an incredible organization pushing for young people to run for office,” said Lujan, a 30-year-old community organizer and City of Newburgh resident. “I am honored to have their endorsement in my run for County Legislator.

Lujan will carry the Democratic and Working Families lines for next month’s general election. He will face Anthony Tarsio, part of the family that owns the Pat Tarsio Lanes bowling alley in the Town of Newburgh. Tarsio will carry the Conservative, Independence and Republican lines for the election.
