About Dr. Erick Aguilar
Erick Javier Aguilar was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras in 1975. At the age of 7 (1982), he moved with his family to Brooklyn, NY in the East New York neighborhood area. It was a challenging time for him and his family growing up in the “rough” area of Brooklyn during the unwanted epidemic of drugs and crime, education and economic crisis, and lack of public trust. Yet, he overcame the struggles and took on those lessons to pursue a better life.

Why Running for Congress?
Dr. Erick Aguilar believes in serving others more than himself. There is more work to be done in government for the people to pursue their happiness. There has been gridlock in laws to improve the needs of the people. There have been some laws that were needed to be made, but not enough to actually focus to improve the lives of our families. There is too much squabbling in the House of Representatives that the victims of this fight are our families. Not enough has been focused on the TRUE needs of families. The agenda of families to move forward are:
In these areas, we need more laws that will work for people to fully follow a path in the pursuit of happiness. There are too many democratic members of congress that are focusing in their own personal marketing for stardom, being fiscally irresponsible, creating fallacies and crises, not being respectful to the truth, and shunning the rights of the people. We need strong leadership to overcome these challenges to create laws that FULLY work for our families, not for their own personal agenda. I have no hidden intentions in running for Congress, I wants to do what is right for the people. I am calling that the 2020s will be the “Age of Accountability” for the government to actually help its people. In my issues page, you will read what are the issues and solutions to help the people of our valuable 4th district. If you do have any comments and suggestions based on your situation, experience, or would like to see more improvements in the 2020s, please feel free to write me a message. I am here for all of you and will fight for you to have logical and reasonable laws that will build our futures. My goal is to create a brighter future together in the pursuit of happiness as our founding fathers envisioned.
