Jamaal Bowman, Ed.D. (NY-16) and Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (NYS-AD90-Yonkers). “People still need assistance applying for various relief programs, help with getting updates on their small business loans or immigration applications and in some cases need a little extra help finding a job or emergency housing. We are here to make sure every person in our communities feels supported and receives the attention they need for their most pressing issues.”

“Combining Assembly and Congressional staff in this effort enhances our ability to help neighbors who need help navigating State and Federal agencies and programs,” said Assemblyman Nader Sayegh (D-Yonkers). “This service to residents is a major part of what my Assembly Office does every day and we are always ready to help.”

Karin Anderson Ponzer, Director of Neighbors Link Community Law Practice said, “It is often incredibly difficult for people to navigate the complex bureaucratic immigration system of the federal government. At Neighbors Link we know the painful and complicated processes that immigrants must face when working with federal agencies and are thrilled to be partnering with NYS Assemblyman Sayegh to ensure that Yonkers residents have support in accessing critical immigration legal services in their community.”

  1. It is clear that in November 2022 the Republicans Nationally and locally are heading for an onslaught. The country is falling apart with inflation, the border disgrace etc. Its been mentioned that assemblymen Sayegh won big time last election , but ran unopposed. The preceding election cycle. he ran against Joe Pinion a no name candidate. This time he’ll have a formidable candidate in Mike Breen. Associating your campaign with Congressman Bowman is a mistake politically and will hurt the incumbents campaign in certain areas of Yonkers were turnout will be high. (The Hill, Homefield Nepera Park.) The first term wanna be SQUAD member is disliked immensely in these moderate to conserative areas.

    1. “This time he’ll have a formidable candidate in Mike Breen”

      Who also ran unopposed in his last two cycles? If non-competitive elections are the reason you have faith in Breen, I hate to break it to you but he didn’t face any challenge when he ran in his much smaller turnout off-year election. Mike Breen is a no-name candidate. Opinion effectively disregarded. Swing and a miss.

  2. Do be upset because Bowman called out Spano and Meier, neither of them had balls to stand up to bowman
    They are hiding behind Gashi
    Gashi is playing the Albanian card meanwhile Albanians are 99% Trump Republicans
    I’m no fan of bowman but Spano and Meier fumbled this one

  3. Nader will have a competitive race in November. His association with the first term polarizing US Congressman will cost him politically in white middle class neighborhoods whose voters tend to vote moderate and conserative. This was a gift to Councilman Breen who will now have a prime mailing for an October surprise.

    1. Nader Sayegh won Breen’s “white middle class” City Council district by 10 points.

      His “association” is providing constituent services. In his newsletter, I saw that Ukrainian-Americans are reaching out to his office to obtain information about their loved ones, and how they can obtain legal status in the US. Is that something you and Mike Breen oppose? Is Mike Breen unwilling to work with people he disagrees with to get things done?

      What October Surprise mail? Who is Mike Breen going to fundraise from to pay for it? He’s already taxed everyone so much they can’t afford to give. Nobody is going to dump money into a +20 Democratic Assembly seat, in a chamber where Democrats have a supermajority, except for suckers.

  4. The same Nader Sayegh who was a supporter of Hank Spallone.(The Gang Of Four.) Also a supporter of Ted Dunn the Conserative Republican for County Executive in 1997.

  5. I am happy that Nader Sayegh is embracing Congressman Bowman. This is how government is supposed to work. The Assemblyman and the Congressman working together to increase affordable housing, pass accessory dwelling units., make sure the rich pay their fair share. and fix racial discrimination.
    We should be proud of Nader for putting the underprivileged and minorities first. Far too long we have been made to sit at the back of the bus.
    For those who don’t know Nader Sayegh is also a person of color.

    1. Are Bowman and Sayegh going to address the increasing Asian and Jewish hate crimes which by the way the majority of perp’s are people of color.

    1. This may come as a surprise to you but not everything is about politics. They are offering constituent services to people who need them. Why are you against that?
