Sullivan Speaks At EMS Event

Gerald Sullivan, Rockaway and South Queens reform candidate for State Assembly, recently joined EMS at the Knights of Columbus Hall to honor EMS President Patrick Bahnken for his service to EMS, the FDNY and New York City.

Also in attendance were the EMS Pipes and Drum Corps, led by Rockaway's own John J. Manning.

Sullivan says that he seeks to unseat a 20-year incumbent, "who has accomplished - in the view of many local newspapers - little to nothing here, but who has endorsed bloated and wasteful Albany spending; overseen a dysfunctional governance process ranked worst in the nation for the last 10 years; and stands silent amidst moral scandal after moral scandal in her Albany Legislature."

"Here in New York City, our city council members - kicking and screaming - have recently been two-termed, and I believe term limits are wholly appropriate for Albany politician too," stated Sullivan. "After all, running New York State isn't that much more difficult than running the United States of America, is it? George Washington worried, as did Madison and Jefferson, of kingdoms and royal courts trampling on everyday life … taxing the weak to succor royal lineages. I do too.""If I am honored by the good people of South Queens and the Rockaways on November 4 to represent them, I will advocate for the passage of term limits for Albany legislatures," Sullivan assured EMT's. "If term limits are ever put on the ballot, I will vigorously campaign for their approval here and across our Empire State."
