Fresh Ideas for NYC's 12th Congressional District!
INNOVATOR VERSUS STATUS QUO
We don’t want any more burnt-out politicians going through the motions, believing everything the war-mongers tell them, voting for all the wars, and all the bailouts, and just flat-out ignoring the people. We, the People, have serious needs. And the system seems to not care.
But another kind of leader is possible. And another kind of leader is now the race for Congress in the 12th District.
Sander Hicks is an innovator. A doer. Sander started and ran three award-winning companies in New York. Hicks was recently recognized by an award, from the City of New York, “Best for Workers, Queens.” His companies have created good jobs for New Yorkers.
Democratic Primary, NYC, June, 2018
What's the Action Plan?
Start a public interest venture capital bank to directly fund new ventures in the public interest.
Racial Justice: It’s time for the Confederate Monuments to come down. They send a message to people of color that white people care more about honoring the history of slavery.
Healthcare: Free Medicare for All. Period. Healthcare is a right.
Impeach Trump: Before he starts a nuclear war.
Organized Labor - Fair Deal for Labor: I support a $15 dollar federal minimum wage. For example, in my company we don’t pay anyone less than $15/hour.
Audit the Defense Budget - I support a U.S. military budget that has been adjusted to a level comparable to Canada, Britain, and France.
Affordable Housing- We need to enlarge tax breaks to developers to incentivize the creation of more affordable housing.
Let’s make peace. End Islamophobia. Commonalities in all religions can be used create unity and peace among diverse peoples. American military actions should cease immediately in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Russia and in the South China Seas.
Expose the Saudi Connection. I support the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, an important new organization, currently filing a Petition for a Grand Jury in Federal Court in NY, asking for a Grand Jury investigation into 9/11. President Obama released the “28 Pages” which were censored financial documents covering the 9/11 attacks. Based on this evidence, we must investigate the Saudi Connection to terror, wherever it leads, even if it leads to an indictment of Bush White House officials.
Climate Change - As a licensed contractor, I have personal experience doing flood remediation work in Rockaway and S.I. and Manhattan. We need to save the planet and set an assertive goal to wean us off all fossil fuels by 2035.

Bush and Bandar
Why was "Bandar Bush" funding the 9/11 terrorists? Why are too many Democrats silent on this issue? The legal term for this is "Misprison of treason" and it's a crime, Rep. Maloney, a crime. >>
