Background

Andrew Giuliani is a lifelong New Yorker who was born and raised in Manhattan. He achieved academic All-ACC honors at Duke University before graduating in 2009 and then turning professional in golf. During that time, Andrew interned in finance and real estate at CapRok Capital, Brownstone Investment Group, and Jones Lang Lasalle. In 2016, Andrew volunteered on the Trump Campaign in surrogate relations, traveling to the Republican and Democrat National Conventions and all three Presidential debates. He then joined the Trump administration as Associate Director of the Office of Public Liaison in 2017. In 2019, he was promoted to Special Assistant to the President. His role consisted of working with high-level business leaders and CEOs to help President Trump and his Cabinet Secretaries craft policy, specifically including the 2017 tax cuts, the deregulation of businesses of all sizes, and was proud of his work on the Opioid task force.

Key Issues

Education

Giuliani believes that far-left positions like defunding the police and critical race theory are destroying the American educational system. Giuliani seeks to promote charter schools to offer educational alternatives to public schools. He believes that teachers unions have too much power and are restricting efficient teaching. 

Fracking

As governor, Giuliani would promote fracking to extract natural gas and oil resources to help power New york city and lower gas prices. 

The Economy

In a state where he feels business are over-regulated and over-taxed, Giuliani would work to reduce taxes for business and eliminate ‘burdensome’ regulations and mandates on businesses to strengthen New York’s economy

Public Safety

Describing it as a crime wave, Giuliani feels that NY has been too lenient with violent offenders and parole, increasing violence in our communities.  As governor, Giuliani would reform the parole system and invest more in police officers.
