Welcome to my “Dean Michael for Assembly” Campaign website! This year has been unlike any other in history. The past Governor has resigned in disgrace after claims of sexual misconduct, causing the deaths of over 10,000 New Yorkers, and the egregious misuse of government resources, all of which took place as our current Democratic leaders sat back idly for years. Cuomo passed over 50 executive orders, restricting our ability to socialize, crushing businesses, and forcing our kids to be masked while he and many others were attending cocktail parties, breaking his own executive orders, and doing so unmasked. Unfortunately, our new Governor is no better. She is doubling down on the same agenda that has failed us in the past.
My campaigning efforts were cut short last year due to the fear of spreading the virus. Going door-to-door and holding live functions were put on hold. But the lack of leadership in Albany over the past 18 months has made this coming election year more crucial than any other. We need true leadership that has the temperament and business insight to handle the next crisis. We need to fix the massive deficit, curb the out of control spending, and we need to get our people, businesses and economy back to work.
I lived through the 70’s gas shortage and double digit interest rates, and I remember in the late 80’s when IBM laid off 13,000 local employees, causing the local economy to crash. Then there was the blip in the financial markets at the end of the 90’s and the big crash of 2008, also known as the mortgage meltdown. I have experience creating businesses during those corrections, and representing you, I will help recreate the Empire State into a better New York for all of us.
Please consider contributing to my campaign, even if it's only $5 so that I can run an effective race against a well-funded entrenched incumbent. We must drain the Albany swamp. Will you help?
Thank you for whatever help you can provide.
