When Congress adjourned for the year, millions across the country (myself included!) were disappointed that action wasn’t taken on a number of important issues. I am committed to continuing to fight for our values, and I am not going to let the gridlock slow me down. It’s important to see progress on the issues that all of us care most about.
That’s why I want to know, what do you think is the most important issue for Congress to address next year?
Thanks for taking a minute to fill out our quick survey today.

Why don’t you start with some even slight PUBLIC expression of concern with the destruction of the East Ramapo public schools?
Please understand that you will not be forgiven by the lifelong Democrats who see the incredible hypocrisy of a “liberal” who absolutely refuses to defend the poor Black and Brown students whose futures have been sacrificed while you have refused to use your position in congress to fight for them, or even make a public statement in their support.

Chairman, Preserve Ramapo
