Invest in Our Future

Dear Friends,

I have some exciting news to share with you. I want to build upon the great work we’ve accomplished together and explore higher office after my current term ends. Will you join me in fighting for our neighborhoods in a larger way to expand upon the legacy we’ve created?

Together, we have improved access to transportation for our neighborhoods by bringing ferry service to Western Queens for the first time in 80 years. Together we have secured over $50 million in landmark funding for all our community parks, including Astoria Park, to preserve and protect our green spaces for generations to come. Together through our Science 2050 initiative we have made critical technology investments in every one of our schools and begun to build science labs so that our children have the tools to pursue their dreams in a 21st century economy. 

And together we have passed some of the strongest environmental justice laws in the country to protect our most vulnerable communities. Together we have accomplished much but there is still much to do!

Queens has given me everything and I’m prepared to give everything for Queens. As a student at Queens College, I was able to receive a world class education while working sixty hours a week at a toy store to put myself through school. I was proud to be President of the Queens County Young Democrats and lead the effort to empower our youth across the borough. As the Chair of the City Council’s Environmental Protection Committee, I was able to help pass legislation to protect our water, improve our air quality for our families and fight for a better quality of life.

At a time when the Trump administration is directly endangering our immigrant families, attacking our LGBTQ neighbors, and harming our planet, we need strong voices to protect our values. The time is now for us to fight and continue to stand together. 

I need your help to continue this journey. 

In service,
