Mark Cipolla hi resMark Cipolla is the Republican and Conservative candidate for New York State Senate in District 11 which is in Northeastern Queens. When asked about the reason he chose to enter the race, he said: “I am tired of seeing career politicians allowed to treat “their” office as theirs, not “ours.” I am tired of seeing career politicians run unopposed because the cost of running a campaign against an incumbent is perceived as cost prohibitive and the uphill battle too daunting.”

One of our biggest issues is corruption in Albany and as Mark has stated: “the first step in ensuring that our government operates ethically is to demand that our elected officials are challenged on their record when up for re-election. Without serious challengers we provide career politicians with immunity to act in their self-interest, not in our best interest.”
