I am extremely proud to announce that I am running for the New York State Senate, 2nd Senatorial District. I received an outpouring of requests from members of our community to enter the race, and I have answered the call. Having served the people of the Town of Huntington and Suffolk County for the last 20 years, I can’t sit on the sidelines while our rights are threatened on every front. I hope to serve the residents of the 2nd Senatorial District by being their zealous advocate in Albany, ensuring that they have the resources they need to live their best lives, the work opportunities they need to support their families and the environment they need to raise safe and healthy families.
We need reasonable and meaningful gun safety measures in order to keep our children safe and to keep deadly weapons out of the wrong hands. We must ensure that quality healthcare is available to everyone, that no woman is denied the right to make her own healthcare decisions and that no member of the LGBTQIA+ community is marginalized. We must protect the right to vote and ensure that every voter has unfettered access to the polls. We must combat hate crimes. We need to protect our environment, fight climate change, help our small businesses thrive and bring resources to our local community. I pledge to work tirelessly and effectively to accomplish these goals.
