A Message from Business Manager Chris Erikson

Happy new year to you and your families. I hope you enjoyed the holidays with those dear to you. Now it's time to get to work.

Tom Suozzi, whom we have supported over the years, is a moderate Democrat. We support him not just because he’s a Democrat, but because he is a moderate, common-sense elected representative. We would probably support him even if he was a Republican because he is a moderate. The definition of moderate is “professing or characterized by political or social beliefs that are not extreme.” Right-wing MAGA Republicans are extremist, and left-wing DSA are extremists. Extremists believe in and support extreme ideas, especially in politics. Left or right, their way is the only way. We need moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans to come together to save America from the destructive path we are on. Our Democracy is continuously under attack and our country is badly divided.

We need to compromise and do what is best for the majority of Americans to move us forward. Agree to disagree and understand that we are all entitled to different opinions. Still have respect for those we may not agree with on everything. Give and take, give to get, and compromise on difficult issues to reach common-sense solutions. This is the greatest country in the world, and our values and the rights we enjoy are worth saving. Tom Suozzi is the candidate who emulates all of that. Let’s do all we can to get him elected and send a strong message to the rest of our country that saving AMERICA starts now, with Tom Suozzi being back where he belongs, in Congress, leading the fight to end the gridlock and extremism that is destroying our country.
