Why I'm running:
I am running to build a real Democratic State Senate majority that funds our public schools and strengthens our loophole-ridden rent laws to protect tenants from being thrown out of their homes. We must pass the NY Health Act and much needed ethics reform, election reform and criminal justice reform. And we need to elect a real progressive majority to make Andrea Stewart-Cousins the first woman Senate Majority Leader, to break the so-called “three men in a room." Doors of opportunity must be opened, not slammed shut.
Our current State Senator is one of eight state senators who have broken away from the Democratic party and instead empowered the Republicans minority to control the Senate. Calling themselves the Independent Democratic Caucus (IDC), they have blocked the progressive legislation we need to counter the current administration's destructive agenda and to protect our neighbors. I will fight for my constituents.
