This is just plain wrong

I am alarmed by my latest primary opponent State Senator Alessandra Biaggi's comments that "we must defund the police," and that our officers are "soulless." (State Sen. Biaggi goes from 'Defund the Police' to 'send me to Congress.' New York Post, 2/7/22.)

See the tweet for yourself:

Biaggi tweet: Defund the police

I've got to be blunt: Senator Biaggi's comments are wrong, and they don't represent the values of our district. Police officers, like teachers, nurses, and other frontline workers, deserve our support not our scorn. They play vital roles in our community. And tearing them down shows a callous disregard for their dedication to public safety. Donate $8 if you agree.

I refuse to join the growing chorus of politicians offering nothing more than grievances instead of solutions. Politicians who attack public servants are doing more harm than good. I'm running for Congress to work on solutions and bring our communities together. Chip in $8 now if you think that we can accomplish more when we work together.

More to come,
