It’s no secret – Long Island has its fair share of issues. And with all the turmoil and partisan gridlock in Washington, it’s more important than ever that Long Island has someone who understand how to get things done. It’s time Long Island had a real working-class voice in Washington. It’s time Long Island had Nick Antonucci.
A Long Islander Who Understands Long Island
Nick Antonucci for New York’s 1st Congressional District in 2022
YOUR ISLAND. YOUR VOICE.
Meet Nick Antonucci
A life-long New Yorker, born in Brooklyn and living in Southold, Nick is a working-class educator who understands the real struggles Long Islanders face every day – sometimes just to make ends meet. His passion for education and community activism, and his first-hand understanding of the issues we need to overcome, has inspired him to run for Congress to advocate for Long Island and protect the people and place he cares about most.

Some of Nick’s Top Priorities as Congressman
Supporting Suffolk’s Economy and Working Families One of my top priorities is putting New York families to work in good-paying jobs. We must level the playing field by raising wages, protecting our unions, addressing unfair trade deals that put our workers at risk, and promoting…
Climate change is our greatest challenge. We can never forget that we, the people of NY-01, are coastal people. Severe storms are coming much more frequently causing costly damage to dunes and beaches, widespread power outages, major disruptions to schools and businesses, and dangerous toxic…
I have devoted my life to teaching in our local public schools and at Suffolk County Community College (SCCC). I also serve as the Executive Director of Sachem Professional Development Inc. (SPDI), a not-for-profit professional development school for teachers. Education transforms lives and offers the…
I believe we all realize that the healthcare system in our country is fundamentally flawed, and the numbers don’t lie – Health spending per person in the U.S. was $10,948, which was 53% higher than the country with the next highest per capita health spending.*…
Lawmakers have treated drug abuse as a criminal problem and moral failing for far too long rather than a public health crisis. We need to halt the flow of amphetamines and heroin into our streets, but we must also dismantle the stigma associated with drug…

Now what are phthalates and why should we care? Phthalates, often called plasticizers, are a group of chemicals, usually found in plastics and gel-like products, that you and I use everyday and can act like hormones in the body. What is frightening is that exposure to these chemicals seems to be unavoidable due to […]

Yesterday my daughter Annie and I traveled to DC to join two of my longtime High School friends (Melinda Reynolds-Moran and Dr. Laura Valente, two proud, strong, successful alums from the Sachem Class of ’82) for the Women’s March. My daughter, a senior at Southold High school, had never been to a protest, so I […]

Suffolk County is one of the most expensive places to live in the country, and it is also a place where there has been little movement in wages and employment opportunities for decades. It shouldn’t be a struggle to find a job with a wage that can pay for housing and still put food on […]
