My vision for New York is that it remains welcoming and diverse with room and equality for all people -- whether they have been here for generations or they have just arrived. Creating that New York requires public servants that will defend and advance affordable housing, living wage jobs, and a culture that welcomes people regardless of race, religion, gender, age, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
I’m proud to have been able to work toward making this vision a reality by passing progressive legislation like Marriage Equality, the state's first anti-bullying law, and laws removing guns from domestic violence abusers. I also look forward to continuing my work on criminal justice reform, transparency, and affordable housing. This year I ask for your vote so I can continue representing you loudly and boldly while we work toward a better future for New York.
