Lee was born and raised on Long Island. In 1998, he signed up for the US Army ROTC program. In 2003, Lee was commissioned onto active duty and, in 2006, he was deployed to Iraq with an infantry battalion of fellow paratroopers from the Army’s elite 82nd Airborne Division. To this day, whether in the Army Reserve, or Congress, he’s never stopped serving Long Island and delivering for our community.
Lee is willing to work with anyone to deliver for Long Island and improve our country. The annual Bipartisan Index of the Lugar Center and Georgetown University recently ranked Lee as the 12th most bipartisan member in the House of Representatives.
When the coronavirus pandemic disrupted nearly every aspect of our lives, Lee worked tirelessly to deliver the resources we needed to protect our community, our most vulnerable, and our essential workers on the front lines each day.
We have a long way to go but Lee has always answered the call to service for our country and community and will continue to deliver for Long Island in Congress. Click below for more information about where Lee stands on other critical issues affecting Long Island:
