Tina Forte

Tina Forte grew up in the Throggs Neck area of the Bronx. She learned the value of hard work and love of country from her father, a Marine Corps veteran, and her mother, an entrepreneur. Tina learned that through perseverance and hard work, she could achieve the American Dream.

As a small business owner, wife, mother, and grandmother, Tina Forte understands the issues facing New Yorkers. Time and time again, politicians talk, make promises, and fail to deliver – Unemployment is still high, inflation is squeezing family budgets, crime is on the rise, taxes keep going up, and our schools continue to fail our students. Tina has been a vocal activist, fighting for families, and calling out hypocritical politicians. She has raised awareness for veterans issues, fought against draconian lockdowns and mandates, demanded schools open for students, and always supported our law enforcement. 

Radical socialist politicians routinely degrade America and the dream it represents. They’ve vilified and defunded our law enforcement, creating a crime surge, while cowering behind their own private security. They’ve destroyed businesses, driven away jobs, and offered little compensation to those affected, while enjoying their own large government salaries. They have robbed children of more than a year of education, denied school choice to those of us who want to give our kids the best education – all while sending their own children to private schools.

Like millions of other New Yorkers, Tina Forte has had enough! Tina has been on the front lines fighting for us. She stood shoulder to shoulder with small business and restaurant owners who were struggling. She joined parents in pushing for schools to reopen for our kids. She backed the blue, and was a vocal opponent to defunding our police. She was even part of lawsuits against Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio to roll back the Unconstitutional executive orders that have destroyed our businesses and the lives of our children for almost two years.

Tina Forte has fought for us here in New York, and she will continue the fight in Washington to stop radical socialists from destroying the American Dream.

Michael O’Reilly

Michael O’Reilly is running for NY State Senate because, quite frankly, we don’t have any representation from our current senator- when we need it most! First and foremost, O’Reilly is adamant that we simply cannot weather yet another term of the current senator.

O’Reilly graduated from Florida Tech with honors. After receiving an honorable discharged from the United States Marine Corp, he attended New York Law School at night, while working 60 hours a week in the Financial District. In addition to being a licensed attorney, O’Reilly was also an airline pilot for a major airline. He attributes any success he’s had in life to two simple things – hard work, and perseverance.

And O’Reilly is walking the walk- to every corner of the district to meet as many people as possible, over and over again because he feels that you cannot substitute face to face conversations with large war chests or social media platforms alone. The current occupant of our district’s senate seat (and yes, it’s the people’s seat) has run largely unopposed in the last three elections and is comfortably numb. In O’Reilly’s opinion, we need someone in Albany to fight for us now more than ever.
