Clean & Safe Streets
At a time when crime is rising, we need to support the NYPD in their effort to protect our homes and families. Building cooperation and trust with local precincts is the answer to keeping us safe. It's something I have publicly fought for over the years and will continue.
No Community Jail
Kew Gardens is not an appropriate place for a skyscraper jail. Period. I have been on the frontlines of protests against the plan to build borough-based “community jails” and will not give up this fight. Our vocal opposition must be matched with a bold voice in City Council.
Excellent Education For All Students
I have consistently sought to protect our student and parent interests for years. Since 2018, my relentless organizing has helped ward off attempts to cancel the SHSAT. I've also exposed the DOE’s failure to engage all stakeholders in the D28 Diversity Plan.
Traffic Congestion & Bike Lanes
Our community deserves the opportunity to provide input to resolve heavy traffic congestion, reach fair compromises on bike lanes, and ensure areas like Austin Street and Yellowstone Boulevard won’t be congested again.
Improve Seniors' Lives
We only prosper if all members, from the youngest to oldest, are cared for and protected. During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, I sprang into action and hand-delivered hundreds of essentials to our seniors, and even personally drove seniors to get their vaccination shots.
Throughout the pandemic, I coordinated essential resources for our neediest neighbors (see more here). Besides distributing relief boxes on street corners, I personally delivered food to home-bound elders and PPE to medical workers.
...And A Prosperous New York City
I will fight to defend the future of our city; ensuring that we remain vibrant and prosperous. This includes:
✅ Capping property tax so New Yorkers can afford to stay
✅ Providing tax relief & stimulus to re-energize local businesses
✅ Building more affordable housing and public service centers to embrace our growing population & cultural diversity
