A Note from Justin

As you know, I’m running for the open City Council seat here in the 43rd district which covers 


Bay Ridge, Dyker heights, Bath Beach, and parts of Bensonhurst. I’m proud to say that Councilman Vinnie Gentile, who is term-limited and cannot run for re-election, has endorsed me to be his successor, and I’m proud and honored to have his support.
I grew up in the shadow of the Verrazzano Bridge, and have always called our community 
home. My wife, Leigh, and I own a small business here, and my mom, Mary, has been an educator here for over 30 years. Helping others is my passion, and with your support, I hope to continue my work in an official capacity as your next Councilmember.
To me, representing our community means making sure everyone has a fair shot at opportunity no matter who they are, or where they come from. It means making sure that our government functions at its most basic level — providing good schools, safe neighborhoods, reliable mass transit, senior services, and yes, smooth streets that we can walk, bike, and drive on.
Now more than ever, we need to elect people with guts — people who aren’t afraid to stand up for what’s right. I was raised to have a strong work ethic, and an equally strong backbone, and I know how to cut through the red tape to get the job done.
The path forward begins here at the local level. I’m excited for you to be a part of our campaign!
See you on the campaign trail!
