Two years ago, I challenged one of New York’s most entrenched, right-wing, Republican State Senators and came within 1% of winning. Since then, I’ve watched as the State Senate continues to block all meaningful reforms I fought for on the campaign trail. Worse yet, they’ve become the Empire State’s version of a backstop for the Trump political agenda.
This November we can do something about it, and that’s why I am again running to represent the residents of Long Island’s 5th Senatorial District. Since beginning my candidacy earlier this year, I’ve been most grateful for the support and enthusiasm I’ve received. I’m especially heartened by the many young people who are standing up to fight and have joined ourcampaign.
With Democratic victories in Special Elections last month, we’re now only one seat away from having a working Democratic majority that will stand up to the Trump Republicans and begin to bring true reforms to New York that will benefit Long Island and the entire state. As you know, the Republican leaders in the State Senate stop progress by not blocking votes on so many important issues, allowing corruption and dysfunction in Albany to continue.
With your support, we can change all of that in November and restore the public’s trust in Albany.
This Thursday, Suffolk County Democratic Chair Rich Schaffer is hosting my first fundraiser of the year, I hope you can join us at Cinque Terre in Huntington Station from 6-8pm. For my friends on one of the Democratic committees, the ticket price is whatever you’re comfortable contributing. If you’re headed to the Eric Scheiderman event at that time, feel free to drop in a little early, I’ll be at the restaurant around 5:30pm.
