District 35

It is vain to talk of the interest of the community, without understanding what is the interest of the individual. ~Jeremy Bentham

I want to learn more about the dreams and aspirations of this community in order to create a unified vision for our future. A community is not simply a place where people live but it is defined as the place where people care about one another and their dreams. Share your thoughts, vision, dreams and aspirations for the future right here!

My dream would be a community where crimes against people are crimes. No matter what the motivation. Just as I did not understand Zimmerman’s motivation in attacking Martin, nor do I understand a perspective that, “offer possible insight as to how young African-American/Caribbean teens could conceivably commit a ‘hate crime’ against a community that they know very little about.”

Build the bridges instead of sowing division!

In light of today’s terrible accident on DeKalb Avenue, I hope you will place transportation safety issues near the top of your agenda. Please pressure the police to do their job enforcing speeding and other violations and encourage pedestrian and biker education and 20mph zones in our residential areas. It’s sickening how many people are killed or injured by cars in our city.

After seeing Laurie’s disappointing positions on transit and transportation at Thursday’s meeting, I am reconsidering my vote for another candidate. I have lived in fort green 12 years with my family and pedestrians, public transit takers and bikers are a VITAL part of my community, not second class citizens behind cars, which have killed more people this year in NYC (the elderly and pedestrians, mostly) than any other cause.

Laurie needs to educate herself on what communities around our city are doing to bring transit improvements and see if she deserves our vote on the 35th to continue the amazing things done under the current councilwoman. The votes are still up in the air.

I dream of our community being developed from its roots, building on the best of our history, respecting the cultures living here now, and focusing on progress that will benefit us all.
American history is rife with our making “progress” through exploitation and destruction of our resources. I dream of a paradigm shift— of making real progress through nurturing our resources— the natural ones and the human ones—making the best use of what we have, displacing no one, and respecting all our neighbors, old and new.
I believe Laurie Cumbo’s vision for our community and, more importantly, how she plans to make it happen, matches my dream and I’m excited to support her candidacy!
