PRIORITIES

Getting things done. That’s our priority.

Recovery

The core of our recovery plan is meaningful economic relief and job pathways for the most vulnerable New Yorkers, a plan for small businesses to reopen and stay open, and a green future.

TRANSPORTATION

Public transportation is the heartbeat of New York. Kathryn’s climate focused plan will deliver a safe, reliable, and efficient transportation system to power our recovery.

climate change

Kathryn has the climate resiliency strategies for every community that will right past wrongs and move New York City to a fully renewable energy economy starting on day one.

Public Safety + Police Reform

Driving down crime and police reform are not in conflict with one another. When we measure the right metrics we can keep our communities safe and reform the NYPD. Kathryn’s plan will drive down crime and restore trust in the NYPD.

HOUSING THAT HEALS

Safe, affordable housing is a right. As NYC recovers we need housing that heals and increased affordability. We'll address homelessness with urgency and compassion.

Education

Education is about building a more equitable city. Our kids deserve the best education including accelerating our Universal Literacy goal to 2023. Our parents deserve to feel at ease with the process, not stressed.

New York's social & economic recovery from this pandemic is going to take a different kind of Mayor. Kathryn Garcia fits the bill. It's time for a female executive that brings creative solutions for all New Yorkers.
