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.

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.

It could take land nearly the size of Connecticut filled with solar panels or windmills to power New York City. We need better solutions. Continue using non-carbon producing nuclear power and prioritize inner earth heat (geothermal), ocean tides, improved conservation, planting millions-more carbon absorbing trees, more efficient appliances and transmission of electricity, hybrid and all-electric cars, charging stations.

January 6th was a horror. I condemn violence as a means of overturning elections and those who violently went into the capitol. They do not represent the Republican party. Debate of ideas is acceptable, but never fierce behavior. There are more important things than winning elections - like protecting democracy.

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.

Most New York City schools fail in teaching fundamentals skills: 31% of young Hispanic students and 26% of black children tested proficient in math. English proficiency scores were dismal: Blacks students 48%, Hispanics 47%. Many schools need major change. Over $31 billion was spent on NYC education in 2021 - nearly $19,000 per pupil, most in the nation, yet students test poorly. I will use the bully pulpit to advocate for comprehensive change.

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.

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.

Millions of lost jobs, $1 trillion trade deficit, vanishing industries, inflation. All notorious problems. All solvable. Here is a plan to end the stubborn problems and vulnerability to other countries, as we now painfully endure.

Recent retreat of Russian forces from Ukrainian territory is encouraging. Success by Ukraine in defeating the Russian invasion has huge implications. A free, democratic Ukraine represents the future of Russian speaking peoples, democracy, and forces fighting fascism and dictatorship as represented by the Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin. Continuing military support for Ukraine and helping Europe end its dependence in Russian oil and gas are the key to ultimate success. And patience.

We fear being pushed 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. An estimated 50,000 New Yorkers are homeless. A comprehensive plan is long overdue. I offer one.
