Candidate Statement

My name is Akshay Vaishampayan and I am running to represent our community in the New York State Assembly.  I believe that I can bring a fresh perspective to the many problems facing our state.

I grew up in Los Angeles as a product of the public school system. My parents immigrated from India in the 80's. My sister and I were born and raised in the U.S. I learned the value of hard work but also learned that upward mobility is possible when you have a society that supports it.

Upon graduation I received my B.A. from the U.C., Irvine and my M.A. from the American University of Paris. I have worked as an AML consultant to various banking institutions, advising them on compliance with financial regulations and keeping them honest.

That is what I do. I am a solutions driven person and I want to bring that skill-set to Albany. Come take a look at my plan and join me as we cross the bridge to the next generation of politics in the State of New York.
