John Cummings

Since word broke that I might be interested in running for the U.S. House of Representatives, I’ve been asked numerous times, “why now” and “why the House?”

As someone who has taught U.S. History for over 20 years, I appreciate the enormity of serving in the world’s greatest representative body. It is my opinion, that our liberty, the liberty that exists because of the blood and treasure of our forefathers and ancestors, is in great peril, and it is being threatened by those who favor the failed economic system known as socialism.

Socialism is antithetical to every one of our founding principles. Principles that have made us the envy of the world for over 230 years and the destination of generations of people looking for the freedoms that were consistently denied them by royalty, authoritarians, dictators, and terrorists.

Elisa Nahoum

I am a lifelong resident of Flushing, NY.  I am an entrepreneur and former business owner, mortgage banker and currently am a licensed real estate sales person.  I am also a political activist and have spent years and countless hours fighting the embedded political machine for our rights and our freedoms.  Our schools are not safe, and our streets and homes are now far less safe due to the disastrous Bail Elimination Act that was co-sponsored by incumbent John Liu. 

Our state needs to do much more to empower our kids with better education and better after-school opportunities and we must expand access to Charter Schools. We need additional resources for the protection and advocacy for battered women. We need tax and regulation relief for small business. But mostly, residents of Queens District 11 need a forceful advocate for the middle class to go to Albany and fight the corrupt regime of Andrew Cuomo.  Cuomo and his minions on the Democratic tickets across this state are bankrupting New York, making New York more dangerous by the day, and driving working people out of New York State for good.  


John-Alexander Sakelos

I grew up and received my public school education right here in the 26th District. My family flower shop, Flowers By Peter, has been servicing the community for over fifty years. It’s there that I learned firsthand the impact that public service and local legislation have on the working class people of New York. After high school I was blessed enough to receive several scholarships and to be granted the Artistic Leadership Award for Community Service. This allowed me to attend the University of Michigan for my undergraduate education and George Washington University for my Masters. After my schooling I became a member of the professional stage actors union and primarily worked on Shakespeare productions and educational theatre. The theater business by its own nature is very collaborative (much like legislating); I was fortunate to learn not only how to work well under pressure and in the public eye, but other valuable lessons on compromise and adaptability. These are the qualities I want to bring to Albany. Currently, I make a living as a theater and humanities professor here in Queens as well as a researcher and writer.
