NYC is the greatest city in the world. But today, it finds itself in crisis and a change in city leadership is necessary.
It’s time for all voters to reconsider who they vote for. Old party labels do not apply to NYC politics anymore. The Democratically controlled city council has become "out of step" with the needs of our city by standing only for the status-quo. If the reforms our crisis ridden city requires are to occur, all voters should consider voting for an Urban Republican candidate like myself.
Our 46.5 Billion dollar budget is too large. Hard earned tax dollars are wasted by our city government causing residents to suffer overwhelming tax burdens and poor city services. We can reduce our budget, reduce our tax burden and improve city services all at the same time by employing the proper oversight of our city agencies.
By lowering taxes, we will stimulate our struggling economy creating good paying jobs for everyone. By improving government services, we will be helping those in need.
The Republican label has been misrepresented by the Democratic Party in NYC. I stand with most New Yorkers on social issues, like abortion and gay rights. But Democrats intentionally misrepresent Urban Republicans on these issues (which the city council has little or no control over) to distract voters from the critical legislative issues facing our city. It’s time for voters to take a new look at Republican candidates across the city.
As a dentist who loves his profession, my interest in politics is idealistic. I will honestly address the difficult issues facing our budget, our economy, our housing situation and in education. I enter the public arena only to address problems and offer solutions. With those ideas in mind, I ask for your support on Election Day.
