President of the United States
"We are in a battle for the soul of America. It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough and resilient. We choose hope over fear. Science over fiction. Truth over lies. And unity over division. We treat each other with dignity, we leave nobody behind, and we give hate no safe harbor. We are the United States of America. And together, there is not a single thing we cannot do." Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the son of Catherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden and Joseph Robinette Biden, Sr., and the first of four children. When Joe is 10, the Biden family moves to Claymont, Delaware, to look for better work. It becomes the state Joe calls home. Joe enrolls at the University of Delaware, where he double majors in history and political science. He goes on to Syracuse University, where he earns his law degree. At age 29, Joe becomes one of the youngest people ever elected to the United States Senate. Weeks later, tragedy strikes the Biden family when Neilia and Naomi are killed and Hunter and Beau are critically injured in an auto accident.
US House - (NY-01)
Suffolk is home. It’s where I raised my two daughters, both of whom are proud graduates of Ward Melville HS. It’s where I work. For the past twenty-two years, I have taught at Stony Brook University, and for the past two and a half years, I have been the chair of the Chemistry Department at Stony Brook. Suffolk is where I built my life. But right now, DC politicians are pushing an agenda that hurts the place we love and the people we care about. To protect Suffolk we have to fix Washington. As a mom and scientist.

She was a champion for landmark legislation to protect working farms, and real action on much-needed affordable housing development.

Suffolk County Clerk
Southampton Town Council
I’m Tommy John Schiavoni. I’m a husband, father, teacher and Suffolk County native. I was born and raised on Long Island, and I’ve been working to strengthen its communities, economies and environment my whole adult life. For three generations, my family has operated a plumbing and heating business in Sag Harbor. At age twelve, I joined the family business and learned valuable skills that I’ve taken with me for life. Growing up on construction sites surrounded by master tradesmen instilled in me the importance of a strong work ethic, a spirit of community service and the desire to find pragmatic solutions to problems — mechanical or otherwise.
