Michelle Bond

MICHELLE BOND

REPUBLICAN

BACKGROUND: Bond, 43, who lives in Port Jefferson, is running in a Republican primary to represent the 1st Congressional District. A graduate of Miller Place High School, Bond attended classes at Stony Brook University and received a bachelor of business administration from Baruch College in Manhattan. She graduated from The Catholic University of America's Columbus School of Law. Bond, the chief executive of Association for Digital Asset Markets, previously worked at the law firms Hogan Lovells and WilmerHale. She also worked as an attorney for Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) on the Senate Banking Committee.

ISSUES: Bond said she is chiefly concerned about immigration, saying she supports building a wall between the U.S.-Mexico border. She said she also wants to lower gas prices by tackling supply, rather than demand. To lower gasoline prices at the pump, Bond said, she supports allowing construction on the federal Keystone Pipeline to continue. She said she opposes gun restrictions and is opposed to abortion rights for women. “On abortion, my perspective is every life is sacred, and that’s from conception to natural death." Bond said, "I do believe abortion should be illegal, with certain exceptions."
