According to his website, Williams' campaign platform includes the following issues:
- Launching tourism and other job-creation initiatives
- Expanding Pre-K programs, and supporting merit pay
- Higher spending on infrastructure
Williams was running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 13th District. He sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket. He faced incumbent Charles Rangel, Adriano Espaillat, Craig Schley, and Joyce Johnson in the June 26 Democratic primary. The general election is November 6, 2012. Rangel won the Democratic primary and advances to the general election on November 6th, 2012.
Rangel, who has represented the 13th for the past 42 years, is seen as vulnerable in the primary. Williams says new leadership is required to address "decades-old problems" in the 13th district.
