US House - (NY-03)
Reema Rasool

My name is Reema Rasool and I am a life-long New Yorker, business builder, social entrepreneur, community organizer, and mother of two boys.

I’m running for Congress because I am sick and tired of the reality show-styled political rhetoric that has now become normalized. I believe our representatives should focus more on health, economic, and environmental justice for our communities, rather than on themselves.
I’m running for Congress because in this country, the richest country in the world, families should not live in fear of their child or spouse getting sick or breaking a bone because the medical costs could cause them to go bankrupt. Health care is a human right and we need Medicare For All.

I’m running for Congress because our middle class is suffering. Our high tax rates hinder growth, and while huge corporations get away with billion dollar tax breaks, our middle class small business owners must decide between shutting down or firing staff, just to keep their heads above water.
I’m running for Congress because, as someone who has lived in both New York City and on Long Island, I have witnessed how climate change and superstorms affect every aspect of our communities. As a business owner, I understand the need to invest in clean energy and training for renewable jobs.

I’m running for Congress because career politicians are just not it. Let’s get some real people in Washington, who can deliver real results for our Long Island and Queens neighborhoods and families.
I’m running for Congress to show my boys that this is their country, our country, and that we need to be brave and fight for what we believe in.

We deserve honest, sincere representation, who will fight for us.
I will fight for all of you.
