HONESTY. COURAGE. RESULTS.
When I ran for Congress I gave my word that I would put the country first, work with both parties, and get things done. We’ve kept that promise, and in the process made it clear that Staten Islanders and South Brooklynites are no longer taking a back seat to anyone.
Already, we passed the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, cut through years of red tape to get the Seawall project going, took on the Port Authority to save our toll discounts, passed split tolling to take out-of-state trucks off the expressway, secured millions of dollars more for the opioid epidemic and slapped China with sanctions for flooding our streets with fentanyl. We did all of that and more without taking a cent from Corporate PACs or federal lobbyists.
I learned in Afghanistan that you cannot lie to the people you’re trying to lead. As we confront COVID-19 and all the other incredible challenges facing our nation that lesson has been my North Star. More than ever, we need leaders who act with courage and honesty and are hell bent on getting results for the American people. That’s what I’ve done throughout my life and I’m not going to stop now.
