Over the past few months, a number of neighborhood leaders and supporters have strongly encouraged me to consider a run for the soon to be open City Council seat that covers Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, and Bensonhurst. After much thought and reflection, I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for the 43rd Council District today.
As with most worthwhile things in life, this campaign will not be easy. That said, with your help and support, I know we will win this race.
By supporting the dynamic patchwork of communities that makes the 43rd Council District such a vibrant and wonderful place to live, we can ensure that the issues that matter most to all of us – good schools, safe and clean streets, and reliable transportation – are prioritized and properly funded by City Hall.
I will do everything I can to make our neighborhoods more livable, more successful, healthier, safer and, yes, happier! I truly look forward to working with you to make great neighborhoods – Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, and Bensonhurst – even better!
