Roosevelt Island's long time Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney

is running against Ms Maloney, a 25 year incumbent,

Mr. Patel spoke with me and the Roosevelt Island Daily during his June 8 visit to the Roosevelt Island Senior Center.

The Roosevelt Island Daily asked Mr. Patel about Roosevelt Island issues 

and I followed up asking about the power of Congressional seniority and incumbency on the race.
