Valdes slams AOC for not representing her constituents

In an appearance at a Queens GOP club on Thursday, Rich Valdes criticized Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her lack of association with her own constituents.

Valdes told the crowd that “she’s great at fundraising but not at constituent services. Ask around, most constituents don’t think climate change is a number one issue.”

“AOC – All Out Crazy – wants to establish a new Soviet Republic,” he said. “I believe in capitalism over socialism. Her misguided policies don’t represent the district.”

Although Rich Valdes is a “carpetbagger,” meaning he plans to move from New Jersey to AOC’s district in order to run against her in 2020, Valdes is around AOC’s constituents more than she is.

“People see me and they say ‘wow’ we see you more than we see her!” Valdes said.
