Why I'm Running


Kate Browning

The 3rd district demands a full-time legislator who can hit the ground running and fight day in and day out for its working families. I worked as a school bus driver while my kids were in school and I know what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet on Long Island. That’s why I first decided to run for legislator and why after three and a half years out of office, I feel I need to return to serve the community. To fight for working families of the district.

As a full-time Legislator, I’m proud of my record – I made Suffolk County safer by passing one of the toughest sex offender laws in the country and ensuring that we graduated one of the largest police classes in Suffolk County history. I focused on quality of life issues, rehabilitating foreclosed zombie homes and selling them to first-time homebuyers, keeping them away from speculators and absentee landlords. And I secured historic funding for clean water infrastructure to protect our drinking water and our shorelines.

The needs of the communities of the 3rd Legislative District are great and there is no time for a learning curve. I know the issues, I know the community, and the community knows me. No one will fight harder or be a more effective advocate for this community.

With the support of my family, I’m excited to knock on doors, hear from the residents of the district and continue fighting for the 3rd Legislative District.
