Plans for the People

As of 2020, Essex county received a D grade with 7 orange days and 1 red day; Hudson County received an F grade with 12 D grade days and 2 red days. Neither in 2018 nor in 2020 was there a monitor collecting data in Union County, another critical part of the district. If I am elected as your Congresswoman, I will fight to ensure that Congress passes and institutes all the facets of Green New Deal legislation, including green union jobs and green transportation infrastructure.

While Black and Brown residents in our district continue to lose their homes, their wealth, their legacies, and their neighborhoods, developers continue to partner with establishment politicians to enrich themselves by pricing us out of our own neighborhoods. If I am elected as your Congresswoman, I will work to guarantee that Congress passes the types of laws and regulations that will restore home ownership, secure affordable housing, and bring justice to families in our district that have been taken advantage of by greedy politicians, banks, and developers.

As a lifelong resident of the 10th Congressional District, I understand how critical it is for us to lessen the gross economic burden that’s been unfairly placed on all of us. If you elect me as your Congresswoman I will rectify these economic woes and help bring prosperity to the people of our district.

The people in our district deserve to have their human rights respected. Denying residents of New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District their right to free healthcare is simply unconscionable and frankly unacceptable. If given the pleasure to serve as your Congresswoman, I will guarantee that every resident in our district will be the beneficiaries of Medicare For All.

While the diversity of our immigrant populations ranging from India to the Caribbean, to South America is what makes our district rich with culture, we can do so much better when serving our neighbors, family, and friends who are immigrants. As your Congresswoman I will continue to fight for the safety, dignity, and wellbeing of our immigrant community.

Our district is one of the most diverse in the state and it’s this diversity that makes our district rich and abundant. This diversity alone, however, does not protect residents living in the 10th District from the ills of racism and white supremacist violence. If I am elected as your Congresswoman, I will fully commit to eradicating white supremacy and bringing true justice to our District, our State, and our Country.
