2014 NY Congressional candidate Michael Vasquez

I am Michael Vasquez, and I would like to be your next Congressman for the New York 22nd District.



What are the issues I want to address for the NY 22nd Congressional District?



Accountability and Responsibility

The very first issue is perhaps the biggest issue facing the New York 22nd Congressional district, NY State, and the nation. The lack of accountability found among many of those in elected office, especially Congress.

I believe this is primary because from it, all other issues are affected in some way. Whether it is ignoring the will of constituents, or flip-flopping on a vote or campaign promise, if a politician feels that they are safe and without challenge - simply because the burden of challenge is so great - they lose touch with constituents...

Immigration

I disagree with this haphazard and inconsistent approach. It does not reflect the views of the NY-22. In fact it is hard to say where Rep. Hanna stands on the issue as he yo-yo's from one side to the other.

I understand that many illegal immigrants have made sacrifices to live and work in America. I can sympathize with the desire to be in the most free nation in the world and to be able to earn more here than is ever possible in their home countries. The desire to give their families a quality of life that they cannot get elsewhere. I acknowledge that the majority of illegal aliens don't break laws - beyond the initial and continued violation of immigration law.

But there is a rule of law, to discard it invites anarchy....(Continued here)



If there is an issue that I have not covered, that you believe is essential and being overlooked by Congress and Government, please contact me so I can share my views to all constituents on that. I will do my best to cover all the major issues presented to me, in speeches and here.
