We need an Assemblyman who does not only know our community but whom also has experience in governing, effecting positive legislation, dealing with difficult budgets, and who doesn’t need on the job training. Above all else we need somebody just like you representing us in Albany. I promise that I will never give up and I will always stand tall on behalf of the people of Western New York.
I will work tirelessly to fight against the injustices facing our children with our deteriorating education system, I with fight against the injustices that our seniors face of being left behind by ensuring they have a seat at the table, and I will fight vigorously for our vulnerable communities across the 149th Assembly District. That is precisely why I am running to be YOUR next assemblyman in the Democratic Primary on June 23rd. Together we can and will deliver the long overdue change that Western New York needs, however I cannot do it alone. I would be honored to receive your support, vote, and to represent you in the New York State Assembly. Thank you!
