New Directions for the Democratic Party

I ran for US Congress in 2018-2019, while Bernie ran for President and AOC ran and won in my neighboring district. I do plan on running again for high office. Right now, in 2019, I am working with my local DSA chapter, and other groups, on affordable housing and peace issues. I am starting a new family with Jamie, my fiancee. I am looking to serve the Democratic Party as District Leader, and am open to future opportunities to bring all of my energy into this huge new wave of change. For far too long, the Democrats have not stood up to the system of war, corruption, and gross financial mismanagement. Today, with leaders like Rep. Alexandria Occasio-Cortez, and Rep Ilhan Omar, we have an opportunity to stand up for justice. It’s a time for heroes.

I urge progressives to consider running against Rep. Carolyn Maloney in 2019 and I am available to speak with you about this. Please read this essay on the changes in the District, and contact me.

What I Stand For

Affordable Housing and Direct Action
The Unions and Government Can Build Housing Again for New Yorkers

Peace in the Middle East: No War on Syria or Iran.

Free and Fair Elections in the USA: Abolish the Electoral College

Economics for the People: Public Banking, Social Venture Creation Programs, and Worker Owned Cooperatives

NYC is a powerful, great, creative place!
We need someone to Rep that energy, for change, for justice, for the People!

We can do better.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney...

  • Voted for the Iraq War

  • Opposed President Obama's historic nuclear deal with Iran. Now she flip-flopped and is for it. For a better view of Iran, read our paper here.

  • Blamed Afghanistan from the floor of the US Congress for 9/11, while wearing a full-length burka.

  • Co-Sponsored H.R. 1697, which makes it a felony to call for the boycott of Israel, restricting your First Amendment Rights to political expression.

  • Is wrapped up in a government municipal bonds scandal

  • Stated in a debate against her Democratic primary challenger that she wouldn't turn down money from "anyone" - including corporate interests and some of New York's worst landlords.
