To my fellow residents of the 27th Assembly District
My Fellow Residents of the 27th Assembly District,
I am honored to have been unanimously voted as the Republican Candidate for the 27th Assembly District Special Election. Additionally, I am thrilled to accept the Conservative Party nomination. Having actively participated in various Republican campaigns since 2011, I have an understanding for what it will take to win this election. I currently work in Public Policy as a consultant, specializing in Education Policy, has given me valuable insights and experience that I believe will serve our district well.
This upcoming journey is about all of you and the neighborhoods we call home. I made the decision to run for office because I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of every individual residing in AD-27. Over the past decade, I have been privileged to volunteer with numerous community organizations, especially within the Jewish Community.
New York State faces many challenges stemming from the policies implemented by the Democratic Party in Albany. One pressing concern is our flawed bail reform laws, which plays “catch and release” with dangerous criminals. This must change! I am determined to help fix these laws, ensuring that repeat offenders are kept off our streets and held accountable for their actions.
The recent rise in hate crimes, particularly against Jews and Asians, is deeply troubling We must unite and stand strong against hatred, as an attack against one of us, is an attack against all of us. This is why I am passionately advocating for stronger hate crime laws and harsher punishments for those who commit such despicable acts.
Education is the bedrock of our society, shaping the future of our children. Yet, we face numerous challenges in this area. Our public schools are struggling in math and reading, while our Democrat-run government is targeting Yeshivas. I also believe in protecting parental rights in education, something the Democrats in Albany have been targeting. I support allowing parents to be informed and involved in their child's curriculum and to opt out of materials that is offensive their religious beliefs. Special needs education also requires urgent attention and reform. Vulnerable children deserve the support they need to thrive, without waiting months for vital services, if their paperwork doesn't fall through the cracks.
As someone who believes in the freedom to practice one's religion without interference, I am alarmed by the radical left's attempts to undermine religious freedoms. Many Christians, Jews, and Muslims, are worried about access to certain public facilities due to social legislation that would require them to choose between using those facilities or their faith. I am dedicated to protecting religious rights and ensuring access to public spaces for individuals of all faiths. Let us build a society where we live in harmony, respecting one another's choices and beliefs, and find a solution that works for all.
Lastly, I share your concerns about undocumented migrants being placed in our neighborhoods without proper consideration. We deserve transparency and a democratic process, where the local communities decide such matters, not government officials without the people's consent. I will work tirelessly to address these issues and prioritize the safety and well-being of our communities.
Together, we can draw a line in the sand and send a resounding message to Albany: Enough is Enough! Let's stand united to bring positive change to the 27th Assembly District. Our voices will be heard, and our vision for a safer, stronger, and better community will be realized.
I am excited to embark on this journey with all of you. Together, let's shape the future we want for ourselves and our children. I am here to listen, to learn, and to be your advocate in Albany.
Thank you for your support, and I look forward to earning your trust and your vote.
David P. Hirsch
Candidate for the 27th Assembly District
