Gambini was motivated to run because of the “presidential election as a whole” and in particular the issue of voter purges that removed thousands of voters from registered rolls in Brooklyn in April. “That made me want to get more involved to fix the perceived corruption in government,” Gambini said. “It gives me a good opportunity to make positive change as a whole and my district.” If elected, Gambini said he would commit to tackling corruption, reducing taxes for middle-class families and making Long Island more affordable for residents.
Gambini, 22, of Holbrook, is running on the Democratic line. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Kutztown University. He works as a driver for a Sayville pizzeria. This is his first time running for office.
