As Presiding Officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, DuWayne has made it a priority to deliver balanced, timely budgets for residents. There is nothing more important to DuWayne than keeping Long Island affordable for working families, and he intends to fight for lower taxes in Washington and ensure major corporations pay their fair share.
Trump Tax Scam
The Republican Tax plan is an absolute travesty and goes against everything that government should stand for. Instead of helping working families, as promised, the Republican-led Congress gave tax breaks and incentives to corporations and billionaires at the people's expense.
In addition, the Republican Tax Plan also targeted New York State directly, giving Long Island residents some of the steepest tax hikes by eliminating SALT deductions. DuWayne will fight tooth and nail in order to repeal this unjust legislation that robs working families of hard-earned tax dollars for corporate tax cuts.
Continued job growth in our communities must be a top priority for any elected official. As a member of the legislature, DuWayne has been a proud supporter of successful campaigns within New York State to raise the minimum wage, provide paid family leave, and to establish living wage legislation.
In Congress he will support a federal $15 minimum wage; he will oppose any Right to Work legislation and fight for equal pay and paid family leave at a federal level.
