Why I am Running

"Southern Brooklyn needs a strong voice that fights for us. I’m dedicated to better public schools, a clean environment, protecting women’s rights, and sensible gun laws. I’ll also work to keep Bay Ridge, Coney Island, Dyker Heights, and Sea Gate safe, affordable, and welcoming for everyone.
