Together, we stand in firm opposition to the #TrumpShutdown and proudly support Democrats and Republicans who voted no. Today, tomorrow, in November and beyond, we will proudly stand with the Dreamers, the millions of people waiting for adequate disaster relief, the families who rely on CHIP, and the federal employees whom Republicans used as bargaining chips.

Speaker Ryan's Republican House voted to raise your taxes Thursday afternoon.

Why? To pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% and big corporations. 80% of Trump's tax cut will go to people with incomes over $1 million.

This bill ends deductions that middle-class Long Islanders rely on – deductions for student debt, medical expenses, state and local income tax (SALT), and more.

Island Hills in Sayville, New York, is small but it is “the” most politically significant building project planned for our area. That is because, for the first time in a long time, voters, elected officials, and civic associations are actually paying attention. Neighbors are assembling at 7 pm Wednesday, November 8th, at Bosti Elementary, 50 Bourne Boulevard in Bohemia to make sure everyone knows about Island Hills. The Sayvil...

On Election Day, there will be three Proposals on the back of your ballot in New York. Proposal 1 asks the question whether to hold a Constitutional Convention to develop and propose changes to the New York State Constitution. If the majority of the people vote yes, people would vote for delegates on Election Day in 2018, the Constitutional Convention would be held after that, proposed amendments would be made, and the voters...

The working people headed home on the commuter train from NYC that fateful day in 1993 never anticipated that some of them would never make it home. Six people didn't, their families were never the same, and Long Island and the nation were rattled. Congress' only response then was thoughts and prayers. Even when one of the victim's wives was elected to Congress, she was rendered powerless by the conservative cowards in both ho...

#DefendDACA

DACA is not only morally sound, it's fiscally responsible. 

Nearly 1 million DREAMERS are living, working, and paying taxes in our country. Ending DACA and deporting Dreamers will cost taxpayers $60 billion. It will reduce economic growth by $280 billion, and cost us $19.9 billion in Social Security revenue over the next ten years. Dreamers contribute billions to Social Security, yet aren't eligible to receive any SS...

There are a number of discussions on different threads regarding the Suffolk Democratic Party, deal making, and county committee appointments. Rather than reply to each, here are my thoughts. This is long, so please bear with me.

Some have suggested that those members who have expressed interest in joining the county committee have not volunteered, dedicated time to the party, or otherwise waited their turn. Others have suggest...

I decided to run for Babylon Town Council, when I discovered there was no Democratic candidate running for an open seat on the Town Board. I approached Suffolk County Democratic Chair and Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer, who told me he had made a commitment months ago to the Independence Party to support the candidate on the Republican, Conservative and Independence lines, and to not run a Democrat.

I believe that Elections are a...

I decided to run for Babylon Town Council, when I discovered that there was only one candidate running for an open seat on the Republican, Conservative and Independence lines. I approached the Democratic Party and was informed that they would not be running a candidate. I thought it was important that the voters actually have a choice in the election, and that we try to elect a Democrat. 

I was honored to be endorsed by the Wor...
