Reasons for Running:
“We can no longer use an entrenched, career politician, who is controlled by party bosses and special interests. We have had enough of self-serving elected officials. We need a Queens Borough President who will work for the public interest. Queens is not for sale and currently, the other candidates have a war chest, and I am starting from the beginning, and I am asking support of ten dollars or more from over 13,000 citizens.”
“Obama’s first race, there was no politician that stood up for Obama in Queens. I was the only one that stood up for him and closed my real estate office for eleven months to make sure he had visibility in Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and Staten Island. I gave President Obama my office for his grass roots campaign office free of charge. I will be seeking the endorsement of President Obama.”
