Why I'm Running

As the daughter of immigrants, a product of the NYC public school system, union member, public servant and community advocate – this is going to be a grassroots campaign built by people from all walks of life. 

 

 

Since politics is the vehicle that determines how we thrive and survive, we can’t settle for leadership that’s not working for us. 

 

 

Now more than ever, we need leaders who will lead and representatives who will represent.  We need leaders who will transcend ideology and philosophy and make things happen for the betterment of a community

 

 

It’s not enough to add your name as a co-sponsor or inherit legislation that’s been drafted and conceived by others. It’s not enough to be visible only during election season.  While the use of social media can be beneficial, we can’t tweet our way out of problems.  When community stakeholders, block and tenant association leaders, faith-based institutions and health care facilities don’t know you nor your staff, have never met or heard from you, but more importantly their needs and concerns are not being addressed – it’s time to move in another direction

 

 

As someone who grew up, volunteered and worked in the 57th Assembly District – I know firsthand many of your dreams, hopes and aspirations. I’ve watched our community change: some good and not so good.  For 12 years of my life, I represented the 57th A.D. as a State Committeewoman / District Leader.  Working together, we hosted town hall meetings, workshops, community forums, food drives, toy giveaways, created an e-newsletter and so much more.

 

 

We did it without staff, a budget or compensation.  Now just imagine what we could do with it!

 

 

I know what it is to challenge the establishment and win…more than once. I will always support people over profit or ambition and will NOT accept, fossil-fuel interests, police unions, banks, corporate or real estate developer money in furtherance of my campaign.  

 

Join me as I take this next leap of faith.
