I'm an attorney with the litigation boutique MoloLamken LLP and live in 480 Main Street in Southtown.  I'm running because I want to do all that I can to keep Roosevelt Island a truly special place to live. If elected, I will work to maintain good relationships with - and careful oversight over - RIOC. I will devote my energies to improving the island's infrastructure. I will fight for a safe community while ensuring that citizens get the respect and rights they deserve. And I will work to bring together all the parts of our vibrant community.  I look forward to serving all of you. Please vote for me this November 6.
