NYC is facing a public safety crisis. We must invest in law enforcement and build the relationship between police and the communities they serve. All citizens have the right to clean and safe streets and subways. We must address gun violence by arresting and prosecuting those that bring guns into our city and those that carry them illegally.
Every child has the right to an education. A right to read and do math at grade level and graduate from high school. And parents have the right to know what their kids are learning and should be able to choose the school that is best for their child. Parents should also have the right to have input into what their children are being taught in schools.
Small businesses in NYC were devastated by overly long and broad lockdowns. The cost of living in New York City is driving people from our communities. We need an all-of-government approach to ease the financial pain hard-working New York families are experiencing. We need responsible budgeting, sound fiscal policy and regulatory reform to make it easier to start and run a business in New York from our leaders in Washington, DC.
