When we invest in our education system, New York sees that investment pay off. We need to improve our public schools and give affordable options for students that want to go to college. While the Excelsior Scholarship was a great first step towards achieving that goal, it needs to be expanded. Many Long Islanders still cannot afford college, and that is because the current program does not account for the cost of living and the number of children in a household.
We need more science and fact-based policies. I support our doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Vaccines helped us stop Polio in the United States. I would support free vaccines for everyone to fight the spread of coronavirus to help keep schools and businesses open.
Living on an island, if we don't take immediate action climate change will devastate our community. That is why we need to invest in green energy, the way of the future.
By investing in wind and solar technology, Long Island can become the green energy hub that powers the entire region. We can create high-quality, high-paying union jobs based around manufacturing, repairing, and selling these upcoming technologies.
Body cameras for police officers reduce complaints and install most public trust. Civilian oversight of police to make sure those who abuse their power do not get away with it.
Amend the bail reform bill. Work with victim advocacy groups, law enforcement, lawyers, and judges to create a system that doesn’t allow repeat offenders to take advantage of the system and reduces racism in the criminal justice system.
Repeal 50a to let the public see police officers’ records.
Supports the New York Health Care Act, which would give healthcare to all New Yorkers and reduce medical costs for a majority of residents throughout Brookhaven. This would also reduce costs for small businesses and would encourage economic growth.
Would support stronger legislation to stop employers from discriminating against someone based on their sex, gender, or sexual orientation.
Strong support of marriage equality and would support stronger legislation to stop employers from discriminating against someone based on their sex, gender, or sexual orientation.
Long Island has been planned horribly and we have to change that. We need to improve public transportation. Eventually, having a bus stop within a 5-minute walk from all Long Islander that would be free. This would increase the available workforce, helping businesses, and creating more job opportunities.
High-speed rail - We are over a decade behind Europe with high-speed rail even though we invented it here in the US. Instead of an hour and 20 minutes to get from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station, it would be 20 minutes or less. This would create more job opportunities and increase NY tourism.
Supports Repealing the SALT Deduction Cap (Federal law).
Supports lowering taxes on anyone making a million dollars a year or less.
Stop tax loopholes for billion-dollar corporations.
Prosecute corrupt politicians that are giving overpriced contracts to their friends, family, or donors.
