Our town hall last night was wild!

First off, a huge thanks to all of you who braved the winter squall and came last night to our Patchogue town hall. We had around 120 people there, standing room only, nearly double our average turnout. Clearly our message is growing.

From the escalating conditions in Iraq and Iran, to our changing climate, to eliminating the SALT cap, voters on Long Island are leaning in, and paying attention. You made that remarkably clear to me by the end of last night's town hall.

The room was packed and your questions kept rolling in. Of course it begs the question, why hasn't our sitting Congressman had a town hall in over 30 months? But the main question that weighed on everyone's mind was, why does Lee Zeldin put Trump's priorities above ours??

Help me put your priorities and make a contribution today. Your support today will facilitate our victory in November.

Understandably, most people were wondering why Zeldin voted against Long Island families and home owners by voting against getting rid of the SALT cap, which would put thousands of dollars back into the hands of working people. But I was most impressed with the belief people have in our country and how we can get better. I spoke about how we must keep young people on Long Island, and the conversation turned to how to get them involved in elected politics. We are all on the same team and want the best for our country, and that was the theme of the evening. Restoring faith in American values.

You all said this last night, and I'm saying it now: Lee Zeldin has got to go! This was an open forum and I was as happy to take a question from the wearer of a MAGA hat as the many loyal Democrats who came. Would Zeldin pemit such open discussion? Thank you for bringing your questions, your concerns, and your energy last night. I can't wait for the next one!

We will have six more before the end of June. And I promise as your elected official, town halls will be part of the routine.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
