Bio

My name is Alessandra Biaggi, and I'm running for the New York State Senate in District 34, where I was born and raised. I'm running because the people of the Bronx and Westchester deserve better representation than they currently have. The future of the Democratic party is inclusive, diverse and compassionate - it is not backroom deals and four-men in a room. In New York politics, women are underrepresented - only 22% of New York State Senators are women, despite being over 50% of the population. This race impacts all New Yorkers, because a truly blue State Senate will mean the passage of important legislation that a majority of New Yorker's have demanded. Closing the loopholes that empower predatory landlords. The Reproductive Health Act. The DREAM Act. Criminal justice reform. Early voting. The Climate Change and Community Protection Act. The list goes on. There are five times as many Democrats as Republicans in District 34 and yet for seven years, my opponent led the Independent Democratic Conference ("IDC"), a group of 8 New York state senators who ran and were elected as Democrats, but then went to Albany to caucus and vote only with Republicans, handing control of the State Senate to the GOP. They did this out of self-interest. As State Senator, my priorities will be expanding voting rights, fully funding public schools, access to affordable childcare, healthcare, and eldercare, fighting domestic violence and gun violence, reforming campaign finance, reproductive justice, and making sure that every person in the district has a good, well-paying job. I'll also fight for functioning transit, affordable housing, criminal justice reform, workers' rights, immigrants' rights, environmental sustainability, and protections against sexual abuse, assault, and harassment so that every human being has a safe working environment, regardless of what they do for a living. Stand up for truth, justice, and a strong, healthy democracy by donating and volunteering for my campaign. It has been such a pleasure getting to know so many of you and learning about the issues that matter to you most. If we haven't met yet, I look forward to it! Now more than ever, we need real Democrats in office. Let's shape our future, together.
