As you know, next November voters in the 13th Congressional District will again vote for their representative to Congress. The Republican Party is not running a candidate, so the choice will be between the Democrat who wins the primary and me.
The choice will also be between sending to Congress a representative of the ruling corporate elite or a person who will represent the interests of working people; between the party which, together with the Republicans, has waged war on the people of Afghanistan and Iraq for more than a decade or for a party which has consistently opposed these wars of aggression; between a party which has the mission to turn every facet of public life into a for-profit enterprise, or a party which believes that government has a role to play defending the interests of workers and the middle class; between a party which does nothing to stop the corporate poisoning of our environment and food supply and a party which has always declared that the air, land, water and food supply be safeguarded for future generations.
The Democrats and Republicans play deaf every time a cop kills a person of color or abuses his power harassing our youth. The two ruling parties have fooled the nation for decades promising immigration reform while continuing to deport millions of hard-working people and refusing to grant them permanent legal status. Finally, public subsidy and tax relief for the corporate elite has reached scandalous proportions just as public monies for health, education and housing are eliminated.
My campaign is thus, one of defense of the broad masses who work, pay taxes and even fight the dirty wars of the corporate rulers. It is a campaign to strengthen workers’ rights and unionization and to get the federal government to legislate a $15 minimum wage so that millions of low-wage workers do not have to live in poverty!
We will be launching this fight June 7th at 12:00 PM with a Meet and Greet Walk from Harlem’s State office Building located at 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd to 116th Street and Lexington Avenue. Please join us and the fight to have a Voice of the People in the US Congress!
