I am proud to serve and represent my fellow Yonkers residents as the New York State Assemblyman. Upon my election in 2018 and re-election in 2020, my focus has always been to improve the quality of life for each of us.
Growing up in Southwest Yonkers with my 7 siblings, taught me to be multicultural and to respect diversity and the needs of the disadvantaged and the disenfranchised.
For nearly 40 years, I fought for quality and equitable education, served as a Teacher, 30 years as a School Principal (PS 13, 9, 22, & adult education) and as a Trustee of the Board of Education for 6 years, 3 years as President. As a member of the Assembly Education Committee, I will fight to change the State’s Funding Formula, which shortchanges our students with millions in lost revenue yearly. I will fight to change how the State funds the building of new schools, which Yonkers desperately needs. Our schools on the average are 80 years old.
I am also an advocate for homeowners and small business and for protecting our basic city services. As an attorney, I understand the law and will continue to serve as a highly active Assemblyman, having sponsored and co-sponsored hundreds of legislative bills and initiatives.
My nearly 40 years of service to the community in education, health care, municipal services and multi-culturalism is a testament to my dedication to each and every fellow Yonkers resident.
