Greetings! If my name seems familiar, it’s because I ran for Congress in 2016 - in New York City’s high-profile Congressional District 12. That’s Donald Trump’s District.

I received 50,000 votes! However, my competitor - the incumbent Democrat - received even more. At first, I perceived that loss as, well, a loss. But now I realize it was a blessing in disguise.

Why? Because had I won, I would have run the risk of becoming overly partisan. I would have been expected to vote the Party line. If not, I would have found myself faced with one or more of the following:

  • fewer, or less significant, committee appointments
  • no financial support from the Party for my re-election
  • a Primary opponent at re-election time

For these reasons, until we deal with issues like Gridlock, Term Limits, and Redistricting, I’m afraid, with few exceptions, we have to look outside Congress for our Presidential nominees.

Why am I running? And, why should you vote for me? 

Simply put, I have bipartisan solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems - solutions which often differ from the President's - and I want to be in the best possible position to shed light on them. Please read my positions on the issues elsewhere on this website. You’ll see what I mean, and you’ll see that I have the diplomacy and finesse to actually make things happen.

How Can I Possibly Win the Primary?

I MUST have a respectable showing in one or more of the early Primary/Caucus states, as that will subsequently generate interest nationwide. I've already secured ballot access in most of those states, as well as a plethora of speaking engagements!

I ask for your support in whatever form, most importantly your vote. Thank you for your consideration.
