There is a nationwide movement to undermine our democracy and public safety by exchanging the rights of law abiding citizens for the rights of criminals. Police Officers, Corrections Officers and our judiciary are under attack for doing their jobs and in the meantime the Mayor and Governor are scheming to close Rikers Island and build jails in residential neighborhoods to make it easier for family members to visit the incarcerated. In the Assembly I will stand up for the men and women who keep us safe.
- Oppose the removal of judicial discretion in bail hearings;
- Oppose the construction of neighborhood jails;
- Oppose the plan to close Rikers Island and sell it to developers;
