BRONX, NY… Former NYPD officer and Bronx high school civics teacher, John Cummings, released the following statement on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s victory in the 14th Congressional District Democratic primary.

“I congratulate Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her hard fought primary victory over someone who, like her, is not actually from the district. On November 3rd, the people of the 14th Congressional District will finally have the opportunity to vote for someone who has lived and/or worked in the district his entire life. I am looking forward to putting my lifetime record of service in the district up against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s superficial socialist social media stardom. This campaign will be a battle of ideas and a fight to finally restore local representation to the 14th Congressional District. Congratulations, Congresswoman, I look forward to giving you a tour of the district.”
