‘I felt the call to serve’: Republican candidate says George Santos scandals inspired him to launch campaign for Queens/Long Island congressional seat


After announcing his intention last week to challenge embattled New York Congressman George Santos for the Republican nomination of New York’s 3rd District, Kellen Curry spoke with QNS about what inspired him to run for the congressional seat.

Additionally, Curry went into detail on what he’d like to accomplish at a local and national level if he ends up winning the nomination and general election.

While Curry, 37,  grew up in Midwest City, Oklahoma, he moved to New York in 2019, shortly after completing eight years on active duty for the U.S. Air Force during the war in Afghanistan. While residing in Long Island City, Curry has worked for J.P. Morgan’s Corporate and Investment Banking Division.
