As we join together as a community to deal with recent events, it’s difficult to think about elections. But we cannot lose focus on the enormous challenges that we face ahead in our community and throughout the city.
I believe I have the experience to meet those challenges. I have served as a Legal Aid Attorney representing indigent individuals in family and criminal courts. I have worked with city, state and federal elected officials as an attorney and senior legislative aide. I have also served as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Brooklyn Regional Office, where I investigated predatory lending and other illegal business practices.
More recently, I worked with Assemblyman Roger Green to provide more youth programs and develop New Visions schools. I was instrumental in enacting into law a bill to provide grandparents the right to seek custody of their grandchildren, and legislation to provide more non-traditional child care for working parents. I have also worked with Assemblyman Green to ensure that development projects create employment, business and housing opportunities for local residents.
I am running on the Working Families Party Line - Row E for Excellence. The Working Families Party was formed by community organizations, labor unions and leaders such as former Mayor David Dinkins and Congressman Major Owens.
With your help, I can be an effective voice in the City Council for our community.
