1. What is the most important issue in Council District 44 you would address if elected?

I would fight hard to reinstate child care vouchers (also known as Priority 7 and Priority 5 vouchers).


2. What other important issues would you address if elected?

I would sponsor legislation to allow citizens to file criminal charges directly at the court house, just like Nassau County. This would help reduce crime.

I will give you my personal cell phone number so I can help you. With God's help after I am elected you will be able to call me directly. 347-692-5364
