Kevin Thomas officially launches congressional race to flip NY-04

Elmont, NY: New York State Senator Kevin Thomas has launched his campaign for New York’s 4th Congressional District. In front of his parent’s home in Elmont, surrounded by family, friends and supporters, Thomas announced his bid to defeat first-term Republican Congressman Anthony D’Esposito in 2024.

“I’ve accomplished real results for Nassau County families – fighting to stop property tax hikes, clean up our drinking water, guarantee the right to an abortion under New York law, keep guns out of the wrong hands, and ensure our neighborhoods stay affordable and safe.”

On why he’s stepping up to run for Congress, Thomas said, “I’ve proven I can get things done to make life better for folks on Long Island, while MAGA Republicans like Anthony D’Esposito offer up extremism and political games that only make things worse. Now, more than ever, we need action. I’m ready to take this fight to Washington to be an effective voice for Long Islanders at a time when we need it the most!”

Kevin Thomas’ story is a Long Island story. It’s a story of perseverance, defending the vulnerable, and giving back to his community.

Kevin immigrated to the United States at 10 years old. His parents never forgot nor took for granted the freedom and opportunities the US gave them and their children. Their experience motivated Kevin to be an active participant in our democracy, and to give back through public service.

Kevin served as an appointee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to the New York State Advisory Committee, and Kevin worked tirelessly to advance civil rights and expand opportunities for all New Yorkers.

He is currently the Assistant Majority Leader and also serves as Chairman of the Consumer Protection Committee and sits on the Rules, Finance, Health, Judiciary, Local Government, and Agriculture committees.
