WESTCHESTER GOP: Meet Our Newest Candidate To Try And Take Yonkers Congressman Jamaal Bowman's Seat
BRONX AND WESTCHESTER COUNTIES, NY: Dr. Miriam Levitt Flisser, a well-known #WestchesterCounty pediatrician, Medical Director of the #Bronxville Schools, and former Mayor of #Scarsdale, has accepted the nomination of the Westchester County Republican Committee to run for Congress in New York’s 16th Congressional District.
“I am running because our great country is straying from the American Dream, which has offered so many hard-working people opportunities for success and achievement,” said Dr. #MiriamLevittFlisser.
“Current policies and legislation passed by Congress are making us poorer, due to inflation an higher taxes. Too many cities and states are forcing our public education systems into a race to the bottom, rather than valuing educational support, achievement, self-reliance and dedication,” she said.
These issues are deeply felt by Levitt Flisser due to her background. Born in Eastern Europe, she immigrated with her parents to the United States, where her family settled in The #Bronx, and ran a local food market.
She and her husband, Harvey Flisser, a retired science teacher, met in high school, and have lived in Westchester for over 40 years.
“As a long-time resident and dedicated civic volunteer in Westchester County; with my Bronx roots, and continuous voluntary Bronx pediatric service, I understand what is important to residents of District 16, and I will represent them.”
The recently redrawn 16th Congressional District includes all of Southern Westchester and parts of the North Bronx. In the November 8th election, Levitt Flisser will face the candidate picked in the Democratic primary on August 23rd
Which will be either Long Time County Legislator Catherine Parker, Congressman Jamaal Bowman or Newly Elected County Legislator Vedat Gashi.
