Dr. Finger was born in, and is a lifelong resident of, Brooklyn.
Raised in the 'projects' in East New York, he attended various public schools, and was graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and Brooklyn College.
After graduation, he worked as a Social Worker for one year, taught Math in the public schools for two years and then attended medical school, paying his tuition by driving a taxi cab in NYC. He still has his taxi license because, as anyone who was raised in the projects will tell you, "You never know..."
Dr. Finger practices medicine (Ear, Nose and Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery) - www.drfinger.com - in the Marine Park section of Brooklyn. He is married, has two grown children, and two not-so-grown grandchildren.
He is a popular guest/host on libertarian cable t.v. - www.hardfire.net - jogs daily, and, in the summer months, can often be found kayaking on (or occasionally under) the waters of Brooklyn's Jamaica Bay.
Why am I running for office?:
"I am running for Congress because I believe in America's Founders' Libertarian ideals of
freedom with compassion; self-reliance; and limited government. I believe that we do need a democratically elected government to maintain a free and open society. We just need a little less of it."
