At the heart of every scientist is a commitment to facts, integrity, and truth. I begin this new journey after serving for 21 years as a National Laboratory Scientist on Long Island. Time after time I’ve seen how science and imagination connect us – and dare us to dream of what’s possible. I believe if we harness that spirit, together we can be a force for good in the next great chapter of New York’s first congressional district and our nation. – Elaine DiMasi

The Issues

Clean Energy

​We are not separate from our environment. We breathe the air, we drink the water, and we eat food that comes from the earth. Dirty energy poisons them all.

Clean Water

Suffolk County’s 1.5 million residents use hundreds of millions of gallons of groundwater a day, and have hundreds of miles of fragile, living beaches in our care.

Grow Our Trade Schools

Updated and thriving public vocational training will prepare Long Islanders for new Clean Energy Sector jobs that can energize our future economy!

A Doctor for Every Family

Health. Life. Freedom. You can’t have one without the other two.

Long Islanders must have affordable, universal health care.
