Let's put Long Island’s health and safety above special interests.

I will never forget when Hurricane Sandy devastated our South Shore, just two weeks after I returned from my deployment to Afghanistan. Here on Long Island, we’ve experienced firsthand the consequences of climate change and environmental degradation. Groundwater contamination, pollution of our Great South Bay, and rising sea levels present imminent threats to our local economy and quality of life. And as a combat veteran, I understand that climate change poses a real and present threat to our security at home and abroad. We need leaders who will stand up to corporate polluters and put Long Island’s health and safety above special interests. As your representative, I will fight to preserve our clean water, combat carbon pollution, and stop the dangerous rollback of environmental protections in Washington. I will also advocate for renewable energy projects that will meet our growing energy needs and lower greenhouse gas emissions, while creating quality jobs on Long Island.
