Crime is the number one issue in the district and will require addressing the symptoms and root causes. We need to fix bail reform, increase funding for comprehensive social services, increase enforcement, and reduce the concentration of facilities. Addressing affordable housing, homelessness, addiction, and mental health will be critical.
Albany is facing a financial crisis amid a looming recession and high inflation. They’re hiding the damage by utilizing budgetary accounting tricks to balance the budget. We do not have enough money to pay our bills. New York State has the second highest income taxes rates, is one of the few states with estate taxes, and has an unfriendly business environment. With local businesses struggling, joblessness remains higher than in other parts of the country— millions are leaving the state, lowering our tax base.
QUALITY OF LIFE
The District and the State face numerous issues requiring comprehensive and integrated solutions. We need to reduce taxes, address the lack of affordable housing, and increase programs proven to work.
Arts, culture, and tourism are essential to revitalizing the 75th Assembly District. Art inspires young and old, stimulates imagination, boosts self-esteem, and stimulates dopamine release – art and culture are good for the soul, for the reduction of crime, improving neighborhood quality of life and good for the economy.
