The combination of skills Antonio gained in his career as an advocate for education, truth, and justice, combined with an approach grounded in hard work, integrity, and love of country, make him uniquely qualified to be the next Democratic representative from New York’s 19th Congressional District.

Following an honorable discharge, he moved to Kansas to be close to family and attend Wichita State University and Washburn University Law School. Since graduating from law school, James and his wife, Lisa, have lived in Wichita where he practices law and the couple raises their two daughters.
