Uniondale, NY- 24 hours after announcing his entrance into the race, state Senator Kevin Thomas has raised $109,000 against Republican Anthony D’Esposito in New York’s 4th Congressional District. Thomas announced his bid to defeat D’Esposito yesterday at his parents’ house in Elmont.

“I’m incredibly grateful for the early and astounding support for our campaign. In Congress, I’ll never stop fighting to help Long Island families, tackle the gun violence epidemic, protect our environment, and defend a woman’s right to choose.”

About Kevin

Kevin Thomas’ story is a Long Island story. It’s a story of perseverance, defending the vulnerable, and giving back to his community.

Kevin immigrated to the United States at 10 years old. His parents never forgot nor took for granted the freedom and opportunities the United States gave them and their children. Their experience motivated Kevin to be an active participant in our democracy, and to give back through public service.

Knowing education was the key to success, Kevin worked hard, took out student loans he’s still paying off today, graduated college and then law school. Instead of joining a big, high-powered law firm, Kevin took a different path, becoming an attorney with the New York Legal Assistance Group, defending those too often pushed aside. He also served as an appointee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to the New York State Advisory Committee, Kevin worked tirelessly to advance civil rights and expand opportunities for all New Yorkers. When the powerful tried to take advantage of regular New Yorkers, Kevin took up their fight – and won.

In 2018, Kevin Thomas became the first Indian-American in New York history to serve in the State Senate. He is currently the Assistant Majority Leader and also serves as Chairman of the Consumer Protection Committee and sits on the Rules, Finance, Health, Judiciary, Local Government, and Agriculture committees. He has passed countless bills into law to make the lives of New Yorkers better. Kevin lives with his wife, Rincy, his daughter Layla, and their beloved family dog, Sirius.
