Golfers from around Rockland turned out in force for Ed Day’s 2nd Annual Golf Outing at the Blue Hill Golf Course in Pearl River. The 100 golfers, joined by an additional 20 for a post-outing lunch, enjoyed the weather and a great start to this year’s golf season at one of the best places for a round in the County.
“It was great to see such a wide range of folks turn out and enjoy themselves as we all shook winter off together,” said Day. “Not only was it good to get out on the links, it was even more uplifting to see so many people come out in support of my efforts to take Rockland back from the people who have been running it into the ground.”
The outing kicked off after a breakfast at the clubhouse, and donated prizes were given out by raffle and for longest drive, closest to the pin, and best score, amongst others when the outing wrapped up around lunch time at Emmett’s Castle restaurant. Golfer and Suffern homeowner Christian Woods said of the event “This is actually the first time I’ve played this course. Not only was the golf great, knowing that we’re supporting one of the few people in government really looking out for us taxpayers was even better.”
When asked, Ed Day spoke of the larger context of the event, saying that “this campaign is really starting to get well underway. People are seeing the distinctions between my vision of a growing economy, responsible development, low taxes, and a balanced budget versus more of the same from my opponents. Rocklanders have a lot of fight left in them, and they’re not just going to sit back and take it as their home values and children’s futures are threatened.”
Having received endorsements from each of the town committees, Day is considered all but guaranteed to receive the official nomination from his party for to seek the position of Rockland County Executive when they meet in convention in one week.
