Robert Zimmerman For Congress

When Congressman Tom Suozzi (D–Glen Cove) announced that he would not be seeking reelection and instead challenged Governor Kathy Hochul in the Democratic primary (he lost), it opened the seat to any number of candidates. The Third District covers all of the north shore in Nassau County with parts in Queens and Suffolk as well. The primary election will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 23. Democratic candidates include Melanie D’Arrigo (also running on the Working Families Party line), Jon Kaiman, Joshua Lafazan, Reema Rassol and Robert Zimmerman. George Devolder-Santos did not face a primary challenge and will be the Republican and Conservative candidate in the general election in November.

As the Third Congressional District primary election approaches, it is with great pleasure and joy that I wholeheartedly support longtime Democrat Robert Zimmerman for Congress. His background in business, communications and more indicates that he is the perfect candidate to represent us in Congress.

Two former presidents hold him in high esteem. President Bill Clinton nominated him to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Presidential Commission and later President Barack Obama nominated Robert to the National Council for the Humanities.

Other elected officials have sought his counsel on a regular basis regarding legislation affecting the congressional district. This reflects and indicates Robert’s ongoing knowledge regarding congressional issues at hand and how they have developed through the years.

Robert Zimmerman has the necessary and unique qualifications for this office particularly during these very rough times politically, i.e., he has the temperament to hold this position. By that, I mean he will stand for the issues that will affect constituents’ lives in our district without caving into misinformation and right-wing assaults. He will give the facts—just the facts, mam, just the facts—not lies and twisted misinformation. Robert has a conscience and cannot fathom doing anything but tell the truth. He will fight the good fight.

He will vociferously defend such critical issues that matter to us including a) Roe v Wade, b) gun legislation, c) voting rights, d) Medicare for All, e) Social Security and more. Robert is determined and driven to protect us constituents legislatively.

At this time, the United States has reached a very dangerous precipice. We are about ready to lose our democracy. Therefore, I am urging voters to cast their vote for Robert Zimmerman for Congress. I can assure you that he will fight the good fight to protect and save our democracy.
