Shore Hill Community Center Candidates Forum

Candidates Forum, May 8th, 2018
Shore Hill Community Center, 9000 Shore Rd., Brooklyn
Hi Everybody,
On Tuesday, May 8th I spoke at an Educational Forum: Meet the Candidates for the 11th Congressional District. Besides me, there were  6 Democrats  and 1 Republican.
I told the group that I was also a senior and a member of AARP.  I told the group that we had a bad economy in the USA  that was causing unemployment, not enough repairs to our infrastructure, and poverty.
I told the audience that the cause of this bad economy was a maldistribution of wealth, and what we should do is tax the wealthy 1% 70 to 92% like we did from 1942 to 1980. THAT’S WHEN  AMERICA WAS GREAT.

Peace Action SI Candidate Forum

Hi Everybody,
On Saturday, April 21, Peace Action of Staten Island invited me and 6 Democrats, who are running for Congress in the 11th Congressional District for their party nomination, to a Candidate Forum at the Unitarian Church of Staten Island. I introduced myself and stressed that we had to pay attention to the warning given by Dwight Eisenhower about the unwarranted influence to our society of the Military Industrial Complex.
We candidates were also asked a lot of questions about peace and I stressed the absolute need to carry out diplomacy with every country to maintain peace throughout the world. I also stressed that we should greatly reduce the number of foreign military bases we have around the world.

Richmond County American Legion Political Forum — 10/20/17

Hi Everybody,
On 10/20/17 I spoke at the Richmond County American Legion Political Forum held at the New Dorp Moravian Church on Staten Island. The forum began at 7 pm. There was about a 100 people there.
I explained that the 1% of Americans who own 35% of the wealth in the USA are wrecking the American economy and that we have to redistribute the wealth down to the working class, the middle class and the poor. In this way we can have enough demand to buy back the supply.

Candidate forum at The Staaten

Hi Everybody,
On Tuesday, October 17, I gave a 3 minute talk to New York State Women Staten Island Chapter Inc. forum co-sponsored by the American Association of University Women, Staten Island Women’s Political Caucus and several other groups active in the Sisterhood of Staten Island Women’s Organizations.
It was held at the Staaten Restaurant on Staten Island. There were about a hundred people there.
I pointed out that the Republican and Democrat policies were causing a bad economy and that the American people were going down the drain. I pointed out that the way to fix this situation was to redistribute the wealth in the USA away from the rich 1% of Americans who own 35% of the wealth.

Labor Day barbecue

Hi Everybody,
On 9/4/17, Labor Day, I attended a barbecue in Willowbrook Park in Staten Island in the picnic section. It was very nice with about 100 politically progressive people, who were attending mostly from Staten Island.
One of the reasons I was invited was because I’m running for Borough President of Staten Island. I talked to many people explaining what we have to do to have a better society.I also gave out about 30 to 40 campaign fliers.

I explained to the people that because we have such a maldistribution of wealth in the United States it was causing a bad economy and horrible problems like crime, unemployment, drug addiction, pollution and the lack of adequate health care, to mention a few.

I explained that to take care of these problems we have to tax the wealthy 1% the way we did in the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s . In that way we will have enough money to take care of problems and straighten out the economy. It’s as simple as that!

Campaign Notes – Candidates Forum at Da Noi

NYSNAOn Thursday 9/1/16, I gave a talk at the New York State Nurses Association Staten Island Candidates Forum. It was held at the Da Noi  Restaurant on Staten Island. I talked for about 4 or 5 minutes about what I stand for like Universal Healthcare, jobs programs like the WPA, rebuilding our infrastructure, protecting our environment and paying off student loans. I pointed out that we can pay for all this by taxing the 1%, the wealthy, the way we did in the 1940’s,1950’s and 1960’s, at 90%.I then answered questions for a few minutes.
