OUR COMMUNITY - IF WE DON’T FIGHT FOR IT, WHO WILL?
We live in a wonderful community of families and small businesses. But we live with decisions made by faraway power brokers who are not listening - decisions that affect the quality of our lives and the future of our community.
Decisions such as a proposed homeless shelter – where a thousand children walk, every day, to and from three nearby schools. Moving “community jails” into our neighborhood. Not replacing aging and leaking sewers and pipelines that flood raw sewage into our streets and homes.
We want transparency from our elected officials. Respect for our wishes and needs. Decisions based on the best interests of our families, children, elderly, local businesses, and local public safety officials.
City Hall and Albany may not be listening. But I am.
I am asking for your vote, to be your State Senator
WHAT ARE OUR BIGGEST CHALLENGES?
Inserting troubled homeless and inmate populations into stable communities is risky and dangerous.
Society cannot fix the broken promises of elected officials, who only damage the stable communities that support the tax base, house our children, and serve our business needs.
The political indifference of elected officials from both parties at City Hall and in Albany fail to solve problems. Instead, they create problems.
Incredibly, these “public servants” refuse to listen to us. We want bi-partisan, transparent, proactive and sound public policy – and immediate solutions that address root causes, not the growing and dangerous results of bad decisions.
NO HOMELESS SHELTERS
Caring for mentally ill men or recovering addicts is sound public policy.
Housing them in neighborhoods of schoolchildren and local business centers is not.
ADDRESS OUR WATER SUPPLY
Repairing or replacing aging and rotting water and sewer lines may be disruptive and may be costly – but it is not rocket science – and high functioning infrastructure is critical to public health and welfare, and is sound – and essential - public policy.
Walking away from construction and installation that the state is helping to pay for is not.
NO COMMUNITY JAILS
Incarcerating those who cannot afford bail for even petty crimes is filling our jails to overflowing, so yes, supporting bail reform that reduces jail populations by 70% is sound public policy.
Moving great numbers of prisoners into neighborhood “community jails” is not.
