Hi, I'm Edwin
WHERE I COME FROM
Youngest Puerto Rican/Italian candidate to ever run for NYC Council 🇵🇷🇮🇹
Astoria Native. Gen Z. Award-winning film industry gig worker. Full scholarship recipient to Columbia University. First-in-family to receive a college diploma. Former Bernie 2020 National Advance. NOT a career politician. Only candidate running for District 22 to endorse #ForceTheVote on Medicare for All. Let's shock the Establishment together!
ARE YOU A SOCIALIST?
I am an independent. I'm a very firm supporter of populist ideas such as Medicare for All, a Green New Deal and Universal Basic Income. I am running as a Green candidate to revive its platform after Gov. Cuomo passed legislation last year to destroy 3rd party ballot access in NY. Ultimately, our mission is to build a path forward for Ranked-Choice Voting in ALL elections - not just the Democrat or Republican primaries.
Words are like cages for ideas. Now, Bernie/AOC themselves are effectively - when it comes down to technical definitions - supporters of social democracy. The term "democratic socialism” can mean one of two things: (1) seizing the means of all production OR (2) seizing the means of some production for essential goods and services (i.e. healthcare, housing, energy, pharmaceuticals, education). I support the 2nd option.
In other words, I support abolishing poverty and giving workers a stake of ownership in large corporations. And, yes, I guess if you were to look at me on a left-right spectrum, I support moving as economically left as possible without getting rid of private property. Not so easy to put me in a box, right?
NOT A DEMOCRAT. NOT A REPUBLICAN.
A NEW YORKER.
Progressives Can Drain the Swamp
Let's be clear. We must defeat the Establishment and demand tax fairness of a few dozen billionaires. We must stand in solidarity against a tyrannical government. We must enact a progressive agenda to extinguish Mainstream Media Misknowledge, Hatred/anger and Greed. We must refund basic human rights and value Compassion and Equality.
Edwin pledges to only seek re-election as a progressive 3rd Party candidate, neither Democrat nor Republican.
Edwin pledges to not accept corporate PAC contributions or lobbyist money of any kind, including zero dollars from the Fossil Fuel industry.
Edwin would govern like a modern day FDR 2.0 or Bull Moose candidate.
