Issues in English

Even as a teenager, Francisco Moya was already working to help his community.

Francisco Moya was raised to value the importance of hard work, education, and community.

While still in high school, Francisco started The Corona Gardens Neighborhood Association to clean up Corona and make our community’s streets safer. After college, he stayed in public service, first working for Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, and then at Elmhurst Hospital where he secured funds for a new mammogram machine and later helped the hospital develop community-based health clinics.

Francisco helped start the after-school sports program at St. Leo’s School, and organized local residents to go to Washington to protest against anti-immigrant policies. He currently serves as a Democratic District Leader and Chairs Congressman Joe Crowley’s Latino Affairs Committee.

All his life, Francisco Moya has been serving our community. Now we have the chance to send a true activist—Francisco Moya—to Albany, to protect our schools and seniors and bring good jobs back to our neighborhood.

Francisco understands our needs:

Jobs and the Economy

Francisco’s number one priority is creating jobs that lift families into the middle class. He will focus on stimulating small businesses in our community; generating new, 21st century, green jobs; and ensuring that companies that get money from the state are providing jobs with real wages and health benefits.


Francisco will not cut the education budget by a single dollar, not now or ever. We need to increase the funding for schools to hire more teachers, reduce class sizes and provide better opportunities for our students.


Francisco has focused on healthcare issues his entire career. While working at Elmhurst Hospital he helped create community health clinics throughout our community. Francisco will fight to make sure our seniors and families have quality healthcare.


Francisco has led the fight to promote equality and justice for immigrant families. He will be a leader in crafting laws that strengthen hate crime legislation, preventing laws that target immigrants and fighting for national immigration reform.
