THE AMERICAN DREAM PLAN

My family’s story is about achieving the American Dream. It is about overcoming poverty, surviving arson, and attaining an excellent education.

 

That is why I have developed the "American Dream Plan."

 

My plan is what I want to accomplish for our city. It is a plan that recognizes the connection of housing, education, and economic policies that must be applied to rebuild and move our city forward. It is a plan that, when passed, will offer everyone in our city the opportunity to reach the level of success they have always wanted.

My plans include:

Housing

  • New Mitchell-Lama/Homeownership for Middle-Class NYers.

  • Expand Funding for Community Land Trusts.

  • Reimagine the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Policies by Eliminating Exclusionary Zones.

  • Streamline the Review Process to Lower Costs.

  • Introduce the "Creating Moves to Opportunity" Program to NYC.
