For me, it’s really about my fellow New Yorkers – the great people of Long Island, my neighbors in the 1st Congressional District. I don’t care about the labels: Democrat, Republican, Right, Left. It’s about what is right and what is wrong; and I have seen enough wrong in my lifetime. It is time to make things right. This is why I am seeking your support for Congress.
The mindless violence and the misguided judgement we all witnessed in Washington DC on January 6th left me with a profound sense of shame and sorrow. Those who forced themselves into the Capitol and even some members of Congress, those who swore an oath to defend the Constitution, highlighted the deep divide and incivility that engulfs politics today. I will not stand for this.
