Event Details


Sup y'all.

I want to let you know about a special event taking place September 14th for Max Rose, who is running for Congress in the 11th district (Staten Island, Bay Ridge, Gravesend and Dyker Heights). Max is a fellow Poly Prep alum who graduated in 2006 and went on to attend Wesleyan and the London School of Economics. He proceeded to serve his country in Afghanistan from 2012-2013, where he received a purple heart when his vehicle hit an IED. I recently got to hear Max speak at one of his early campaign events and was blown away. I would love for all of my friends to have the same opportunity to get to know him better, to know the Max that I know and have come to love, respect and greatly admire.

More than ever, the 11th district, where Max is running, plays a significant role in our national politics. This seat is typically (and is now) held by a republican and having Max elected in 2018 would mean another Democrat in the house who supports our values and is willing to fight for us in these eerie times.

I've attached a link to a recent article Max was in interviewed for, some basic talking points and information about him (his past and current career, his platform, views, etc.) and most importantly, the event invitation, below.

This upcoming event is an open bar (yay!) and a great way to network and have fun while supporting politics on a grassroots level. Tickets are $25 and you will have an opportunity to make a donation at the event if you'd like. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated!

As young people this event is a great chance to get involved and make a change starting from the ground up. I really hope to see some of you guys there. If not, you're dead to me. Lol jk

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or Maya Rose (Max’s sister).



Message from Max:


Take a walk down Forest Avenue or 86th Street and you’ll see them. A mom getting home from her night shift at the hospital. A dad headed out for his tour at a firehouse. A veteran who served her country overseas. They put it all on the line every time they step out the door and they deserve to be represented by someone who shows up for them.

That’s why I’m running for Congress.

The people of Staten Island and South Brooklyn show up every day for their community. They need a Congressman who will do the same for them. Will you sign up to join me?

Ordinary people put in the work, and then get left out of the prosperity they help to create. Benefits get cut. Taxes go up. And they still can’t plan for their kid’s future, no matter what they do.

I know sometimes it can be hard to believe that anything will make a difference, but as a Combat Infantry Captain in the Army I saw the true potential of this country. The troops I served with in Afghanistan did the impossible every day because that’s what their country asked of them.

We are capable of so much more as a country. I’ve seen what happens when we work as a team, and put our country over partisan politics. Will you be a part of my team?

Together, let's fight for the America we know is possible – one where hard work is rewarded, the next generation can get ahead, and our politicians have the courage to lead.

I know this road will not be easy, but on Staten Island and in South Brooklyn, we don’t duck the tough fights. We run towards them. That's what this campaign will be all about.

I’m in. Are you with me?

Max
