MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Derickson Lawrence of Mount Vernon has announced his candidacy for Congress in the 16th District.

"Today, America is at crossroads. The discourse of our presidential candidates and the nation’s response to that should give us pause. As I held on to 5-year-old Luciano at my announcement for United States Congress on March 5, I began to feel the connection and shared responsibility we all have as parents, and as stewards of this great experiment we call the USA; because we are all in it together."

"I want you to care for his future, as I care for your children’s future. Our obligation is straightforward: Let’s make America a more perfect union by leaving it in a better state than we found it. My motto is America’s motto: Think big; act boldly, but responsibly; and lead without apology. If you fight for me, I’ll fight for the issues that matter to you. Moreover, guided by the voice of the people, I am determined, to make Washington work for you."
