Carolyn Maloney. Democrat. Incumbant. Since January 3, 1993
A Democrat who was first elected to Congress by unseating an entrenched Republican incumbent in the biggest upset in the country in 1992, Carolyn Maloney has been described by The New York Times as a "prolific" legislator, one of a handful who "stand out for their moxie, kind of the way New Yorkers themselves often do." She has made her mark on Washington by standing on her strong and consistent record. Since every lawmaker in Washington knows where Carolyn stands, she has been able to fight tirelessly for New York, leading the Village Voice to call her "a tiger in the House on every dollar due New York" More about Carolyn

Now it's just a matter of approving one of those plans, which leads me to my second issue...
GRIDLOCK. When I mention the word 'Congress' to the average voter, gridlock is the word they most associate with it. How do I plan to overcome gridlock? The old-fashioned way - by forging personal friendships with members of all parties, establishing a foundation of mutual respect from which to build, and then employing proven negotiation skills. It's a successful recipe without having to resort to 'giving away the farm.' More about Robert
