Izzarelli Fighting for Families, Children
November 5, 2012 - If we have learned anything over this past week, its that New Yorkers can accomplish anything. All across the Empire State, neighbors have united to recover together. Even once power is restored and our towns are rebuilt, we must continue to work together to solve the difficult problems plaguing our state.
Kim Izzarelli, the only fiscal conservative running for the State Assembly in the 95th district, has created a dialogue in our community, telling constituents the truth about where we stand and how we can fix it.
“I’m going to Albany to be part of the solution,” says Izzarelli. “We can bring this spirit of unity to the legislature to make a real difference for New York families. That means reducing unfunded mandates for our municipalities, leveling the playing field for teachers and parents by repealing the Triborough Amendment, and reducing the overwhelming property tax burden that is driving away small businesses.”
Going door-to-door throughout the community, and visiting every Metro-North train station, Kim has been listening to the concerns of residents every day on the campaign trail.
“I hear them and I can relate to them,” Izzarelli said. “I understand how hard it is to raise a family in the community we all love under these harsh economic conditions. That’s why I’m running. I look at my two kids and recognize that if we continue on this path they will not have the same opportunities to succeed that my generation was blessed with. Their generation deserves better.”
Kim Izzarelli is a single mother of two who spent fifteen years in the private financial sector, most recently as an internal auditor for a private pension fund.
“Send me to Albany,” Kim says, “I’ll make the tough decisions our kids are counting on.”
