Last night's town hall

"Are we going to build better hospitals on Long Island?"

"Will schools and colleges be open in the Fall?"

"What will the 'new normal' look like, and when will we see it?"

During Perry's "Fighting for Long Island" Virtual Town Hall last night we had over 800 viewers on Facebook, 190 viewers on Zoom, and over 100 questions submitted. Dozens of questions just like the ones above came in, asking for information, but also, for hope. This was Perry's response to what our "new normal" could look like:

"The 'new normal', post-vaccine, doesn't have to be the same as the normal we left.

It can be better.

We have to look at the opportunities to grow as a nation. Look at healthcare—we have decided everyone has a right to treatment for this disease, and maybe we can expand that to all diseases. Similarly, we are burning less fossil fuels now. If we can keep that up and develop better sources of alternative energy, we will be able to make this crisis make us better. That is something we should all strive for."

Still, despite Perry's message of hope, there are too many questions that are not being answered. But we know the reason for this is simply, a lack of leadership.

"Why haven't I gotten my stimulus check yet???"

"How can I get antibody testing, when there aren't even enough tests for essential workers?"

"How can Lee Zeldin be silent when Senate Leader Mitch McConnell says that our state should go bankrupt rather than get federal aid?"

Great questions. Questions that Lee Zeldin should be answering, but he isn't. That's why we have to vote him out. That's why we have to help Perry replace Zeldin in Congress.

Please take one minute and donate $15 right now, to make sure that the new normal is a better normal. And to help Perry beat Lee Zeldin.

Together we can win this, even when we are "alone together."

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.
