Steve said that this platform of the Sapient Party will ensure a better today than yesterday, and we will make tomorrow the best. He wants New Yorkers to be able to get a better job and achieve the American dream. This is only possible, if all the New Yorkers who care for better New York and better America, come out and vote on November 4th on Row H.
Bobby added, that the Sapient party will be the voice of the people because we are inclusive of all not exclusive of any. He also mentioned when a voter chooses a public servant he or she should not become a public boss, because of the trust New Yorkers bestowed in them. The reality is many of our public servants become public bosses. They forget they made a promise to serve as a public servant.
Bobby and Steve’s closing remarks were, “let us all work together so that we can make a difference for a better tomorrow for the state of New York. “The Party of Wisdom” people first.
