You live in New York, so you know the drill.

The unnecessary and unsafe bike lanes where parking spaces should be.

The disrespect for Law Enforcement and lack of quality of life enforcement.

The growing impotence that you may feel by working harder and earning less.

The cold sweat you break into when you see just how much of the money you work day and night to earn is being sucked up by a corrupt, out of control bureaucracy at the state and local levels.

Everything is a money grab. It is impossible to do business.

And we are just supposed to accept it. “That’s just the way it is,” they tell us.

I’m going to level with you.

As a former NYPD Captain, lifelong NY resident and five years involved in the political system first hand I’ve concluded that WE can fight City Hall – together!

So, with the help of some incredible people and organizations, I founded the Square Deal Committee.

Let me introduce you to Square Deal Committee:

Square Deal was President Theodore Roosevelt’s domestic program in the United States. The president explained in 1910 that Square Deal was to be applied to three basic goals: conservation of natural resources, control of corporations, and consumer protection. These three demands are often referred to as the “three C’s” of Roosevelt’s Square Deal.

Today, in the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s original proclamation, the Square Deal Committee’s mission will be to work from the outside to bring people together who understand exactly what needs to be done to fix the mess some politicians have created for us.

One of our very first goals is to educate the public and improve their civic awareness.

New York does not belong to faceless bureaucrats……it belongs to US!

It is what Teddy Roosevelt would have wanted, a non partisan advocacy.
