Candidate for
U.S. House, New York, District 6
Campaign website
Daniel Halloran is a 2012 Republican and Conservative Party candidate seeking election to the U.S. House representing the 6th Congressional District of New York.

Halloran has served on the New York City Council since 2009. He was elected on the Republican, Conservative, and Libertarian tickets.[1]


Campaign Themes

Halloran lists some of his campaign themes on his website:[2]

  • Education-"Solutions can present themselves in a variety of new ways- the expansion of charter schools, the establishment of school voucher programs, and supplemental assistance & exchanging ideas across the private and parochial school systems to make for CHOICE.

Our youth need to know that if they study hard there will be a way for them to continue after school and make it through to a college degree or technical or vocational program which will provide REAL OPPORTUNITY. Parents need to know that the hard work they put in to pay for their child's education will not be taken away in taxes, but be there to pay for the extra school costs of college when that time comes. Making sure the money is there means cutting overlapping Government agency waste and mismanagement.

There is no support in schools for Boy or Girl Scouts (Dan Halloran has been involved in scouting his entire life and is an Eagle Scout). Scouting teaches a core set of values and provides service to others. It’s a real shame troops are closing."

  • Public Safety-"Promotion of Inpidual Rights and Responsibility- The cornerstone of our Constitution is the notion that we live in a society predicated on Liberty - eliminating endless bureaucratic overlay is helpful- for the government that governs least, governs best.

But beyond that, the Police and Politicians need to be accountable and responsible to the People. Government should be transparent and EXPLICABLE to the citizenry. There should be no arcane or mystic quality to fiscal expenditures, local laws, or how government accomplishes its goals. "Joe the Plumber" (to borrow from the federal election debates) should be readily able to grasp the fundamental basics of what government is doing and how it is spending our money and protecting us. You shouldn't need to be a lawyer to understand your rights and ensure they are protected- from being able to make an addition on your house (see local zoning nightmares) to what the cops can and can't do when they pull you over for a traffic infraction- its about protecting and safeguarding the rights we citizens are endowed with by our Creator - INCLUDING the right to keep firearms in our home for self defense.

Our politicians shouldn't be staying in office to make money for themselves, but should be engaged in safeguarding our tax money for the benefit of the People, to ensure a smoothly running and efficient government, and the advancement of the ideals of our Republic. Adherence to the Framers Intent in reading the Constitution - walks hand in hand with the ideas of limited government, separation of powers, the nature of the Bill of Rights and importantly the first level premise that over-taxation and trampling of common-law rights are what lead to our Revolution from England."

  • Infrastructure-"I propose merging and incorporating the 113 current city agencies into 46, which will save in simple bureaucratic terms -top commissioners, staff, offices, and general administration costs roughly 6-9 billion dollars over the course of each mayor's term. This money can be put to work making real improvements to our infrastructure, repairing our roads and and keeping transportation running smoothly. Constant stop-gap repairs and endless half-measure work only makes matters worse, resulting in increased emergency spending and more taxes. Saving money wasted and putting it to work in the right areas is the way to reduce taxes overall.

There will likely be other savings as efficiency is improved through staff and resource sharing and better coordination and think-through processes in developing plans and goals.

In addition, the complexity of the agency overlap and authority turf-wars will be reduced by 50% and that will likely also lead to improved morale, less wasted resources in in-fighting, and may also give the average citizen more responsive and fully-answered issue addressing (instead of answers from 17 different places, one stop shopping). Improving our infrastructure and transportation problems by stopping the waste won't be easy, but your voices together with mine, can put a halt to multiple agency waste - and start putting that money where it belongs: into real no-nonsense services the taxpayers can see."

  • Seniors-" Dan will fight for the valuable services seniors can’t do without, including Access-a-Ride programs and senior centers.

Seniors are served by numerous private charities, such as Meals on Wheels, that do great work – but they’re getting squeezed during these economic tough times. Dan will work to make sure these organizations continue to thrive and provide the services seniors need.

Too many seniors in Queens struggle to get from point A to point B – and the city isn’t making it any easier for them. Our streets are especially dangerous for seniors in wheelchairs or who have difficulty hearing. Dan will invest in safer streets, fixing crumbling sidewalks, crosswalks and curb cuts. Dan knows that when people have a hard time getting around, the entire community suffers."
