A local allergist makes in onto the June 26 primary ballot.

Bayside doctor Robert Mittman became the fourth Democrat to enter the Sixth Congressional District race this week after he officially made it on the ballot.

Mittman, whose , will compete with state Assemblywoman , D-Flushing, state Assemblyman , D-Fresh Meadows, and Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, D-Middle Village, in the June 26 primary.

“I decided to run for the United States Congress because I believe that our government is no longer working in the best interest of the people,” Mittman said. “Something is wrong in Washington and as a lifelong community resident, a parent, a voter and medical doctor, I am here to offer a prescription for a healthy economy.”

Mittman said key issues in his campaign include improving the economy, halting wasteful government spending, and“moving health care reform in the right direction.”

“I am not a career politician like all of my opponents,” he said. “As a doctor, I have been trained to diagnose an illness and prescribe the proper treatment. I will apply these same techniques as a representative in Congress. My candidacy gives the voters in the Sixth Congressional District a real alternative to politics as usual.”

Nice guy. Nice doctor. Now I'm worried about the wait time to see him. The wait time in his office is already horrendous---HOURS MULTIPLE HOURS waiting to be seen every time--Now I imagine it will be even worse. GAWD!
