I present comprehensive economic plans for the national and local economy. From outsourcing to inflation to restoring domestic manufacturing, here is a long-term plan to bring independence from foreign supply chains and job growth.

Crime has soared. Restoring safe streets and subways will take more than Albany tweaking bail. It will take major change. My congressional opponent, supporting progressives soft on crime, won’t act to restore safety. We need sensible policing that respects civil rights, handles crime, and requires judges to set bail that won’t release dangerous people. We also face the tragic crisis of increased mass shootings. Please study my proposals addressing these and many other criminal justice problems.

Helping each other. That’s what we do in America. Government must do more to help senior citizens and ensure Social Security will be there for us… now and 50 years from now.

I’ll work to ensure everyone has access to affordable health insurance and prescription drugs. Mental illness must have a larger role in healthcare. Last year nearly 100,000 people overdosed on drugs and died, suggesting mental illness or depression. Reports note growth of depression among teenagers and adults. Mental illness often leads to poor health. They are interrelated. One wonders how many mass shootings may have been prevented had those killers had mental illness treatment long before they got their hands on guns. I will focus on mental illness to help make our country healthier and safer.

Just what is normal? The CDC estimated there were 52,000 influenza deaths in the 2017-18 flu season. Using that as a reference for “normal”, it averages 142 deaths/day. By comparison, the recent range is 260 to 350 (mostly unvaccinated people!). Even in normal times we witness nearly 150 deaths/day. We are getting closer to “normal”. (We averaged over 2000/day in January.) Dr. Fauci stated on The PBS NewsHour that we are “out of the pandemic phase.“ We should emphasize treatment and downgrade to endemic, for we keep overreacting. Covid mutated many times and we cannot live as if it were the killer it was two years ago. I met people who were afraid to touch a pen (as if it would kill them). This is the legacy of fear trumpeted by experts. We see troubled students, road rage, a crime wave... let's repair psychological damage.

As your congressman I will put my heart and soul into obtaining federal funds to improve our subways, buses and infrastructure. From aging water/sewage pipes to poor subway service to tunnels supporting transportation, I will diligently work to keep our city vibrant.

We fear being pushing onto an oncoming subway car. Add mounting trash, drug addicts in subway stations, subway seats covered by sleeping people, aggressive beggars, tossed syringes… and a long list of troubling problems. Over 50,000 New Yorkers are homeless. A comprehensive plan is long overdue. I offer one.

There’s talk of solar or wind energy replacing oil. It could take land nearly the size of Connecticut filled with solar panels or windmills to power New York City. It’s problematic. Instead, continue using non-carbon producing nuclear power (instead of retiring nuclear plants) and prioritize energy from inner earth heat (geothermal), ocean tides and fusion (like the sun merging hydrogen into helium). Fusion energy would provide Infinite clean energy. If only nature’s elusive riddle can be solved.

I saw January 6th with horror as did millions. I condemn violence as a means of overturning election results. I condemn those who violently went into the capitol. Such people do not represent the Republican party past or future. Win elections with better policies. Fierce debate of ideas is acceptable, but never fierce behavior. There are more important things than winning elections - like protecting democracy. What people did that day was not peaceful protest. All politicians must acknowledge this Country comes first, not political party. Our forefathers wanted democracy – not demagogues and hooligans. A lesson overlooked is that our capital needs better security, FBI intelligence, and coordinated planning.

Housing needs rapid action. For years politicians (like my opponent) gave lip service to NYCHA and affordable housing. I have a comprehensive plan for intense and rapid action.

Condo and coop owners face serious problems. I offer reforms that will help.

New York City has had dysfunctional schools for generations. True change is needed. Over $31 billion is spent annually on education (30.7% of the 2021 $102 billion budget) and nearly $19,000 per pupil, most in the nation, yet our schools rank poorly nationwide. I will use the bully pulpit to advocate for the following comprehensive plan to transform education and make schools truly 21st Century.
