Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Bardel's campaign website listed the five laws that would have been his top priorities if elected:[5]

  1. I will immediately sponsor a law to bring home our troops from Afghanistan and stop all drone attacks that are antagonizing people all over the world against the United States.
  2. I will sponsor laws that will subsidize research on how we can make green energy cheaper and more productive. Green energy like wind, solar, geothermal, biomass power, hydro power, hydrogen power and ocean energy so that we can stop global warming with green house gases caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas.
  3. I will immediately sponsor a Single Payer Health Care Law that will cover all Americans from cradle to grave. It will function like Medicare and will be basically Medicare for all.
  4. I will sponsor a bill that will recreate Revenue Sharing. Revenue Sharing is where the Federal Government gives money to the State and local governments to help pay for State and local services like Education, to hire teachers, Police and Fire protection. Revenue Sharing will reduce real estate taxes. I will also sponsor a Federal Law that will pay off all student loans.
  5. I will sponsor laws that will create a jobs program like the WPA which we had in the 1930’s. I will also create a stimulus package that will rebuild and repair our crumbling infrastructure. For instance the law will provide money for road repair, bridge repair, the building of schools, government buildings and parks.

The 11th Congressional District of New York held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Michael Grimm (R) defeated challengers Domenic Recchia (D) and Henry Bardel (G).[3] All three candidates ran unopposed in the primary election on June 24, 2014. Grimm appeared on the Republican, Conservative and Independence Party tickets in the general election, while Recchia appeared on the Democratic and Working Families Party tickets. Bardel ran for the Green Party.

New York's 11th was considered a battleground district in 2014. Grimm won re-election in 2012 with a 5 percent margin of victory, but the district went Democratic in the 2012 presidential race, voting for President Barack Obama with a 4.3 percent margin of victory. Grimm's chances for re-election could also have been affected by the negative media attention he received after being indicted for 20 crimes involving his restaurant, Healthalicious, including tax fraud and hiring illegal immigrants.[8]
