I am ready to fight for you. If you know me well you know that I have not changed my stance or capitulated to those who wished me to back down. This district is diverse and proud, so let’s fight for our community.  We can do this.

Important Issues

Safety first.

We should not defund the police but instead work with our local NYPD to stop the growing violence on our streets. No to shootings, no to stabbings, no to guns in schools and unsafe commutes during the 5 p.m. rush hour. Enough is enough.​​

Oversized congregate homeless shelters in residential communities are bad for everyone.

We have a right to insist on safety and transparency. Elected leaders must listen to the community, address our concerns and make sensible, compassionate decisions that respect site specific issues like proximity to schools.

Public school education needs to be excellent for all.

Rigorous, challenging education can lift up all students. We must insist on improving the quality of education. We need to honor all students from special needs to gifted programs. It is time to get ideology out of the classroom and focus on the basics.

Small businesses have not recovered and need our support.

Chinatown small businesses, in particular, have been disproportionately affected and ignored. We need sensible policies that bring everyone back from the pandemic's impact.​

No jail in Chinatown.

Community jails are not humane solutions to those in the jails or in the communities around the jails. There will not be enough beds and it will destroy the quality of life for our Chinatown residents.

There is always more. And my approach is community first. So if you want to talk about any of the long list of additional issues I will listen. Get in touch.
