Inefficiency and inequality lead to injustice. How?
New York has tremendous resources — but it often wastes them on programs that do not deliver the desired result or spends them in ways that do not help the New Yorkers who need them the most.
It is time to stop crisis-to-crisis governing and begin efficient, effective and equal methods:
- Build digital efficiency for records and data.
- Eliminate wasteful budget slippage.
- Revise regulations that discourage growth for small and minority owned business
- Analyze NYC assets for repurposing as affordable housing
New York City’s government is not just in crisis — it often is the crisis.
COVID-19 has exposed the City’s mismanagement in stark detail. And it is Black and Brown communities who suffer the most from its dysfunction.
I know because I lived it.
I will make our City government more efficient, effective, and equal. Here’s how:
As one of six children with a single mother who struggled to make ends meet, I have committed my life to making the City work better for those who need it the most.
Today, the City governs from crisis to crisis — always dealing with the immediate problem and never the cause. Structural changes and smart management are necessary to create efficiency and reduce inequality.
I will do that by:
- Closing the budget gap without affecting public services
- Instituting real-time governing
- Finding the waste
