As an experienced government public servant I have been focused on eliminating discrimination and increasing opportunities for the less fortunate. while realizing that voting is the best tool we have to combat prejudice and defend our values. This Primary 2019 we must do that.
I want to continue much of the good governing that I have maintained over the years. My Majority Minority District have suffered enough. the largest hit came with the newly created (2-2014) Land Bank. These abandoned properties over 1000 in the Urban Zones have now been declared unsafe and has created blight. Our County/City plan have joined in partnership to address this and I will pledge to work hard to address this issue . As Chair of the Board of the Youth Detention our mission is focused on the recently developed "NYS Raise the Age Program". My serving on the Albany County Personnel Standing Committee has allowed me full understanding of all the units and departments and could be helpful in many areas of county workforce.
