FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 29, 2011

Queens son Mike Scala announced his campaign to seek the Democratic nomination to represent New York’s 6th district in Congress. Family and friends attended the announcement at Once Upon A Time in Jamaica, Queens. On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, the Scala for Congress campaign will broadcast that announcement online at Livestream.com/ScalaforCongress starting at 8 PM EST. Scala will be live in the accompanying chatroom for an open discussion until 9 PM EST.

Mike Scala’s campaign espouses the message that those on the ground level have better perspective than the establishment: “With over 8% of Americans unemployed, now is the time to demand stronger leadership. Strengthening essential programs on which everyday Americans rely, investing in our infrastructure, and improving our educational system must be prioritized over needless wars and tax spending on the wealthy. To put it simply, President Obama needs more support from his own party to enact the changes promised by his election.”
