Liuba Grechen Shirley of Amityville appears to be building on grassroots momentum from founding New York’s 2nd District Democrats to oppose King after President Donald Trump’s election. On Saturday, she rode into Manhattan on the Long Island Rail Road. She told The Point she was thrilled to see women at the Women’s March she had never met carrying signs for her, including people from upstate, New Jersey and Connecticut.
“The movement is big,” she said. “Last year, women marched, and now there are women running” for office.
