ELMONT, NY Carl Achille officially announced his candidacy for the 05th Congressional District of New York. Achille’s campaign is built upon years of leadership in civil service, community service, and youth empowerment. He is taking his unwavering commitment to the next level by campaigning to effectively advocate for all of the communities of the 5th Congressional District that unfortunately have been overlooked and underrepresented for way too long.

Achille’s message was clear, “I want to do what is necessary to bring the resources we need to bring jobs, lower taxes, and to overall provide a better quality of life for our families.”

Achille who lives in Elmont, stated that it’s evident that so many people in the district are tired of the status quo and are ready for change, and desperately want new representation. “I have respect for Congressman Meeks, but I, along with many, many others in the district feel like he’s just going through the motions and is not doing the work in Washington.”

He vowed once elected that his top priorities would be healthcare for all and funding for Cancer research, push for the ban of military assault weapons, economic development in the region, and creating a pathway to citizenship so that dreamers in pursuit of the American Dream, just like his parents, can have the same opportunity.

His commitment to service is evident in the various leadership roles he holds within his community and as a professional public servant. Whether it’s fighting for sustainable economic development, fighting to ensure the streets are safe for our children or creating scholarship programs to build a better future for our youth, Achille’s dedication to serving his community knows no bounds. He will fight for all Constituents in the 05th Congressional district like he has done his entire life.
