Watch our new ad. Black lives matter.

Today, our campaign started airing a new ad about racial inequality and supporting the peaceful protests that are occurring in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.

Former NAACP board member William Pickens III narrated the ad. He's a Sag Harbor resident whose grandfather, Williams Pickens Sr. was one of the founders of the NAACP. I am grateful for his strong support:

"I have known Perry for many years, and I know him to be a fighter for equality and someone who will never stand down to the type > of injustice that we have seen over and over again in the Black community. I fully support Perry in this campaign, and I know he is > who we need fighting for us in Congress."

Like many Long Islanders, I've spent the last week attending peaceful protests in Bridgehampton, Southampton, Sag Harbor, Shirley, Westhampton Beach and Stony Brook.

Black lives matter. The murder of George Floyd is the just the latest in the continuous pattern of senseless killings of black people at the hands of police. This is a travesty in America, and we cannot be silent any longer.

I will always support Americans' right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate, and protest. Not only is it our Constitutional right, but when we see injustice, we have an obligation to speak out, and that is what I am doing.

I have fought racial injustice my entire life and Lee Zeldin standing is on the wrong side of history. He must be defeated in November and I am the candidate who will do that.

Watch the ad here and pitch in to build our grassroots campaign.

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.
