Candidate for the United States Congress – New York’s 3rd District
I have dedicated my life to helping others and to ensuring that our communities continue to prosper. From 2004 through 2013, I served as North Hempstead Town Supervisor, and most recently, I served under Governor Cuomo as Long Island’s Storm Recovery “Czar” and as the Chairman of the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority overseeing Nassau County’s efforts at financial recovery.
As your congressman, I intend to fight for our communities and to speak out on the core Democratic issues that are important to all of us like standing with Planned Parenthood, supporting rational gun control measures, recognizing the scientific realities of climate change and taking on Donald Trump. As North Hempstead Town Supervisor, where I created and implemented Project Independence, a program that helps our senior citizens age in place, bringing 311 and municipal performance measurement standards to our town, and our environmental initiatives.
I’m proud of my achievements relating to balancing our town budgets, improving government accountability, and fighting to make government work for all of us.
I hope that you will support me in the Democratic Primary on June 28th.
Jon Kaiman is calling for an immediate ban on assault weapons. According to Jon Kaiman, “I believe that buying military style assault weapons that can mow down hundreds of people in a matter of moments is not, was not, and should not ever be justified under the guise of protecting our constitutional freedoms. It is unconscionable that a person can walk into a gun shop and buy a military style assault rifle at all let alone with the limited background check process that presently exists.”
“Allowing the gun lobby to set the parameters of our gun laws while defining our constitution is simply wrong. We all know what the second amendment says. We also know what it means. And we know what it doesn’t mean. It doesn’t mean that anyone at anytime can buy military style killing machine under the guise of constitutionally protected liberty or inalienable right. If you want an assault rifle, then join the army (or any other well-regulated militia such as your local national guard). “
Jon Kaiman LIVE on LI in the AM!
