I am Jonathan Clarke, the Progressive Party’s candidate for the Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor. I am a voting rights activist and civil rights attorney. I, along with a few friends, Blaire Fellows (Founding Member of Election Justice USA), Steven Abreu (Elected Delegate for Bernie Sanders), and Michael Reich (Dedicated College Professor) decided to reconstitute the Progressive Party in our Town, the Town of Oyster Bay.

The Town of Oyster Bay is the most corrupt town in Nassau County, which is the most corrupt county in New York State, which is the most corrupt county in the country. We re-formed the Progressive Party in Oyster Bay to be an alternative to the party boss patronage rule that has plundered the Town of Oyster Bay and pushed it on the verge of bankruptcy.  

We were met with resistance at every step of the way. The Democratic Party boss let loose his law firm Harris Beach, LLC, on our slate of progressives and sued to remove us from the November 7 election. It was a four-month struggle to defeat the establishment and its law firm Harris Beach, but on September 22, 2017 we won the right to be recognized on the ballot for this election.

The establishment wanted to win this election in the courtroom by denying the Progressive Party a place in this election. They wanted this election decided in the courtroom rather than in the voting booth. Despite our historic defeat of the establishment and its law firm, we are far behind in fundraising. Please consider donating to our cause to help our progressive slate win this November.

Our mission and platform are simple. Once and for all, we want to prove that a progressive government will do the most good for the most amount of people. We will do this by fulfilling the promises in our platform that are:

• Eliminating the “party boss” Pay-to-Play patronage system 

• Combating the Zombie Home Epidemic plaguing our town that has been ignored since the 2008 economic meltdown

• Creating sustainable commuter oriented downtowns to stem the flow of young people from leaving Long Island

• Creating a balanced budget without raising taxes or cutting essential services

• Fighting the opioid addiction that is ravaging our communities

• Implementing Environmentally friendly reforms and cutting carbon emissions

• Funding the paving of our roads by forcing the Town Attorney to sue the Lizza Family responsible for robbing our town of millions of dollars that were meant for paving our roads.

Please vote for the Progressive slate this November 7th and if you can donate, I would really appreciate your donation.

Donations will go towards palm cards, mailers, and lawn signs. I will not accept donations from any special interests or those with connections to our local government and will not accept more than the Federal contribution limit from an individual at $2,600. (Political contributions are not tax deductible).

Vote Oyster Bay Progressive Party this November for TOB! A people powered Campaign! 


In Solidarity, 

Jonathan Clarke
