Note from Robert
Excitement is in the air. The determination and urgency New Yorkers feel is real. We are ready for change. The time is now.
I am running for NYS Senate in 2018 because state government is the last line of protection from a dysfunctional federal government. I am running because, like you, I have family and friends who are being left behind.
In 21st century New York, no one should be one illness away, one manufactured crisis away, one natural disaster away from being financially wiped out. We need a government that has our backs and officials who stand up for the communities they represent. We must demand change, and it must begin at the state and local levels. Together we will build the kinds of villages, towns, cities, and state that the people of New York deserve.
Like you, I love New York. It remains a wonderful place to live and work. As I step up, I extend my hand to each and every one of you in friendship and in the belief that we will do this.
Join me, friends, neighbors, and all others who love New York. Together, we will fight for a NYS government we can be proud of.
