Hey, Julio. What are you doing for Puerto Rico?
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT
The Economic Development of our District and Financial Empowerment of Our Residents have to be our base. Small businesses comprise over 95% of the economic engine of New York City but only 80% in the Bronx.
HOUSING (OWNERSHIP FOR NYCHA RESIDENTS)
The Bronx is experiencing a housing construction boom while the majority of our residents cannot afford to live in the district. Meanwhile the district has one of the largest number of NYCHA apartments in the country.
Criminal Justice Reform
The (in)Justice System continues to plague the underserved. While other talk about criminal justice reform, as a co-founder of Discovery for Justice I co-led efforts to successfully overturn NY’s Blindfold Law.
