I announced that I am seeking the Democratic nomination to represent my home district of NY-6 (southeast Queens) in the United States House of Representatives. My message is that we need to focus on the needs of everyday Americans.
With over 8% of Americans unemployed, now is the time to demand stronger leadership. Strengthening essential programs on which everyday Americans rely, investing in our infrastructure, and improving our educational system must be prioritized over needless wars and tax spending on the wealthy. To put it simply, President Obama needs more support from his own party to enact the changes promised by his election.
I hope you will join the campaign at www.scalaforcongress.com.
