Our politics should be as inspiring as our city.
I’m Suraj Patel, and I’m a Democrat running for Congress in NY-12 because we need more fierce and forceful advocates for the future.
The status quo isn’t good enough. Our values are under attack by leaders that don’t share or understand our lived experiences, and it’s going to take new ideas and louder voices to make real change.
New York is filled with dreamers and doers, and our politics should be as inspiring as our city. We deserve vocal reps who are willing to take risks and tackle problems with bold and creative solutions.
This is a unique time, and America is awake, aware, active. The progress we’ve seen in just the last five years is unprecedented, and I’m hopeful that this moment in history is the tipping point.
For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction.
We are that reaction.
Now’s our chance to build a future we’ll be proud to hand off to the next generation.
So what do we stand for?
Great question. Here's where we stand on the big ones.
Overall, I believe New York's 12th Congressional District should be boldly leading with innovative, progressive, and vocal leadership.
This campaign and our policies will be focused on the future, because that's the kind of thinking that's missing right now.
Especially as more people become civically energized, we have a remarkable opportunity to engage a new generation of proud Americans — we’d be remiss if we wasted this moment and continued the status quo.
