Meet Tony

Tony and his partner with their dog in the park
I’m a native New Yorker, son of a Peruvian mother who immigrated to the United States and a father who drove taxis and trucks to support his family. My late grandfather Tony, a Teamster’s union delegate, showed me the importance of public service and collective action from a young age.

Today, I live in Hell’s Kitchen with my fiancé Jason, and our rescue dog, Radar. As a community leader and organizer in both the public and private sectors, I’ve led fights for tenant and immigrant rights, marriage equality, and accessible green space. I know that change begins with listening to community concerns, building diverse coalitions, and implementing innovative solutions to our most pressing problems.

I began my career in the private sector, but quickly my belief in the power of our communities drove me to public service. I worked for some of our state's greatest elected officials—Hillary Clinton, State Comptroller Carl McCall, and State Senator Catherine Abate—and had the honor to serve as Director of Community Outreach for the NYC Council under Council Speaker Christine Quinn. And I earned a Masters in Public Administration from Columbia University along the way.

In these roles, I directed volunteer relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy, led local initiatives to reduce hate crimes, participated in the NYS marriage equality victory, and defended tenants from bad landlords. These were all humbling experiences. I saw that those who most needed help often had the least access to the resources of government.

If elected, I’ll continue the legacy of the current Assembly Member, Dick Gottfried, focusing on the issues that matter most to working class New Yorkers. That includes passing the New York Health Act to create universal single-payer coverage so we can all have better health care at lower cost, fighting for more truly affordable housing, and helping families and small businesses not only recover, but thrive as we come out of this health and economic crisis.

Why I'm Running

My neighbors on the west side of Manhattan are my family, my friends, and friends I haven’t yet met. You are the dynamic and diverse people who put a smile on my face, show me that anything is possible, and inspire me to work every day to improve our lives through collective action.

I’m running for State Assembly because I believe that government can be a force for equity, progress, and the improvement of all our lives.

It takes collective action and bold, creative thinking to find solutions to our most complex problems. As your Assembly Member, I’ll bring everyone’s voice to the table, from both the public and private sectors, and especially from the communities directly impacted by issues. By working together we can ensure that every New Yorker has the resources that they need to succeed and that the 75th Assembly District recovers from our current health emergency stronger than ever.

We need comprehensive and practical solutions that pave the way for our bright future - not just for some, but for all.

I believe we should be judged by how we show up for the most marginalized people in our community. When we implement inclusive policies to help the most vulnerable in our city, we all win.
