Auerbach and I in June of 2008 after his big convention win! I was much bigger than :(
I was looking on Facebook and came across some great pictures, this picture was taken moments after Auerbach won the Democratic convention in 2008 in his bid for County Comptroller, he went on to win the general election over Republican Jim Quigley. Elliott's race was the first serious race I was involved with and the beginning of a great friendship.
It may seem like a dumb post about a picture that was taken three years ago but when I look at it, it brings back a lot of memories. That was a big night for me, I felt accomplished, I was part of his team and I was proud of him and I looked up to him, I still do. Elliott was the first person that ever gave me a chance and took me seriously in politics and I am very grateful to him for that and he remains someone that has serves as a political mentor to me. He's a great guy and doing a great job as our county comptroller.
