About Patrick

Before I introduce myself, let me ask you the following questions about the Bronx and Queens.

Are you satisfied with the quality of life in the Bronx and Queens?

Do you feel that the Bronx and Queens could improve and be better as a thriving community and blissful neighborhood?

Do you feel that the Bronx  and Queens could and should offer you more in terms of employment opportunities, economic empowerment, educational access and affordability, fair housing, home ownership, business ownership, quality healthcare and social services, better sanitation and postal services, healthier food options, cleaner and greener parks, and fair legal treatment and counsel in family, criminal, housing, and civil courts?

It is a time for a change - stop settling for less, and support a candidate who can identify the problems and provide solutions to your problems. And I am the candidate who will identify your problems and solve your problems! 

This is not about party affiliations or political clubs, this is about who has the best qualifications and most experience  to get the job done. And I have the best qualifications, and the most experience to get the job done! 

Support Patrick Delices for U.S. Congress as I am running to BUILD A SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER BRONX & QUEENS!

The Bronx along with Queens has such a rich history, dynamic cultural diversity, and great economic promise; yet, in comparison to the other boroughs in New York City, the Bronx in particular the South Bronx along with Queens is neglected and taken for granted by our politicians, business men and women, investors, law enforcement agents, and judicial officers where crime persists along with asthma, drug addiction, HIV-AIDS, illiteracy, obesity, loitering, littering, unemployment, homelessness, and poor quality of life.
I am running for the congressional seat because the residents of the Bronx and Queens have been underserved by the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party has taken us for granted as crime persists along with illiteracy, loitering, littering, unemployment, homelessness, and poor healthcare services and quality of life.

As the People's Politician and a Rational Republican, it is my duty to serve, represent, and empower the people by  BUILDING A SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER BRONX & QUEENS where together we can thrive as a community and get our share of resources in New York.

I am not only a politician, but I am also a scholar, activist, and public intellectual who taught the History of Haiti, Caribbean Politics, Black Politics, and African-Caribbean International Relations at Hunter College, Department of Africana and Puerto Rican/Latino Studies. I also served as a research fellow at Columbia University for the late, Pulitzer Prize historian Manning Marable. Moreover, at Columbia University, I served to support the coordination and the facilitation of the Annual Mayor David Dinkins’ Leadership and Policy Forum. It must be noted that I have over 20 years of experience working in higher education and social services primarily as a career services /job placement professional where I successfully provided job training and secured  jobs  for students, alumni, and community residents.

In addition to my public policy background, I also have a foreign policy background and a global worldview. As a citizen of the world representing the Bronx and Queens, I visited Algeria and various Western Sahara refugee camps on a fact finding mission. Furthermore, I facilitated a research project and conference in Haiti and I also led a group of college students for humanitarian relief/aid work to one of the poorest regions in the Dominican Republic. I have also visited and conducted economic, political, and cultural research  in Cuba, Brazil, Chile, China, South Korea, Spain, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, and Egypt.

Due to my local and global community work and contribution, I received the Distinguished Alumni Award from New York University and the Outstanding Alumni Award from Teachers College, Columbia University.

For over 20 years, Patrick Delices has been a proud resident  of the South Bronx where he attended  Cardinal Hayes High School at the Grand Concourse. Patrick Delices earned a BA in International Relations and Black Studies along with an MS in Educational Administration and Supervision from the City College of New York. Patrick Delices also earned an Ed.M in Higher Education Administration from Teachers College, Columbia University; an MBA in Quantitative Finance, Business Law, and Global Business from New York University, Stern School of Business; and an MPA in International Economics Policy and Management from Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs. Moreover, Patrick Delices holds a certificate in Performance Measurement and Management from Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government; a certificate in Decolonial Studies from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in Spain; and a certificate in Critical Islamic Theology and Muslim Liberation Studies from the Universidad de Granada in Spain.

Remember, the Democratic Party has failed the people  – the Democratic Party has sold us out to interest groups, corporations, and the criminal (in)justice system.  The Democratic Party is planning to close down Rikers Island and build prisons in our neighborhoods to  imprison our children. The Democratic Party has not served nor empowered  the people – if the Democrats did, our congressional district would not be one of the poorest districts in this nation and our communities would not be plagued with crime, poverty, unemployment, and homelessness. Therefore, stop settling for less, and vote for the best and the best is Patrick Delices because he is invested in BUILDING A SAFER, STRONGER, BETTER BRONX & QUEENS !
