I'm Andrew Gounardes and I'm a Democrat running for NY's Senate District 22 to unseat Brooklyn's only Trump-loving, NRA-loving, anti-women's choice Republican Senator. A win for us means flipping the NY Senate blue. AMA!
Andrew Gounardes here. I'm a Democrat running for State Senate in NY's District 22 in Brooklyn. I'm running to unseat Marty Golden, the scandal-laden, Trump-loving conservative who has represented the district since 2002. We're energized by the support we've received from the community for our grassroots, Brooklyn-centric platform and I'm psyched to answer your questions today.

Also, last night we released our Women and Families platform in response to the President's SCOTUS pick. You can check out the full platform here
Let's do this, Reddit.
Edit: It's 4pm and this AMA is supposed to end now, but I'm having a great time answering your questions. I'm going to stay for another half hour and then I have to head out to knock on doors and talk to voters.
2nd Edit: Thank you, Reddit. I enjoyed hearing from all of you. See you on September 13 for the primary and November 6 for the general election. Peace out!
3rd Edit: Andrew here. It’s now 7pm on Wednesday, July 11, the day after my AMA. I really enjoyed doing this yesterday, so I’m coming back tonight to answer new questions and ones that I missed. I’ll be doing this late tonight, so keep ‘em coming!
4th Edit: 7/11 around 11pm - Back as promised, answering more questions.
