Staten Island and South Brooklyn

I am going to add a little plug here for my Staten Island/South Brooklyn folks – Max Rose is an army vet who is running to represent us in the House. He’s looking out for the issues that are important to Staten Island and Brooklyn (like easing traffic, tax reform, affordable healthcare, and bringing funds to our district to build infrastructure). He is not afraid to get out and talk to the folks in the district –  Louis and I have actually met him a number of times, just out and about.  Here is some info on his stance on the issues: https://www.maxroseforcongress.com/index.php/issues/

Which ever way you may vote, get out there and let your voice be heard!
