Denny's Story

From Coming to America to
realizing the American Dream

My name is Denny Salas, and as a proud first-generation American, husband, and father-to-be.


My immigrant story is like many New Yorkers: I grew up in poverty, we collected cans for money, and in a case of arson, we almost lost our lives when someone lit our house on fire while my family and I were inside.


Despite those challenges, we achieved the American Dream, and I believe it is alive and for everyone.


I'm running to provide Public Safety, Better Education, and Economic Opportunities for our Lower Manhattan District.
