Suozzi Continues Regional Diner Tours in Queens and Brooklyn

Suozzi Continues Regional Diner Tours in Queens and Brooklyn

Taking his campaign directly to the people, Suozzi follows up last week’s successful tele-town and diner tour combination in a different region.

On Saturday, Congressman Tom Suozzi, common sense Democratic candidate for Governor, and his running mate for Lieutenant Governor, Diana Reyna, held two meet-and-greets over coffee with Democratic voters at diners in Queens and Brooklyn.The diner visits followed Suozzi’s tele-town hall on Monday, March 14 for Queens and Brooklyn Democratic voters. Participants in the tele-town hall were invited to come out to the diners to meet Suozzi and Reyna.

“Our visits to diners in Queens and Brooklyn were a follow up to our tele-town hall with over 8,000 Queens and Brooklyn ten tele-town halls reaching over 63,000 registered Democratic voters.

All of Suozzi’s upcoming tele-town halls will be followed by local diner visits.

“I am going straight to New Yorkers to find out what they care most about and I am showing them who I am and how my executive experience, common sense approach and long record of fixing problems is what our state needs in its next Governor,” continued Suozzi.

“Kathy Hochul spends her time in private fundraisers collecting money from special interests and those who do business with the state, all while ignoring rising crime, offering no long term plan to cut taxes or to address the rising inflation rates that are putting so many New York families in a financial bind,” said Reyna. “I am proud to be running with Tom Suozzi and that we are going directly to the people to hear from them instead of only hearing from insiders who profit off of NY taxpayers.”

Nearly 100 people crowded into the USA Diner in Rosedale, Queens to meet and get to know Suozzi and Reyna. The candidates addressed the energized group and answered questions about crime, property taxes and high inflation. Afterward, the candidates mingled with voters, fielding questions and taking photos.

At the second stop of the day, the Lindenwood Diner in Nanuet, over 35 Democratic voters came out to join Suozzi and Reyna for a similarly spirited meet-and-greet.

The campaigns also had staff and volunteers on hand to collect signatures on petitions to get Suozzi and Reyna on the Democratic primary ballot in June.

Suozzi will hold another tele-town on Monday, March 28, for Democratic voters on Long Island. During the call, Suozzi will announce the diners he and Reyna will be at on Saturday, April 2nd.
