Fresh update on "new york city council" discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics

"Thanks for tuning into this episode. We're continuing our series of interviews with the candidates for New York City council speaker. This is a race among roughly 7 candidates who will be among the 51 members of the New York City council come January when the new class of council members and the rest of city government is seated. The council members will vote for one of their own to be their legislative leader, the speaker and a position that comes with immense power and a lot of responsibility and again is voted on by the members of the city council, but those candidates for counsel, including my guest today have been making the rounds talking to people in the media appearing on this podcast and also starting to appear in a variety of forums in front of different interest and advocacy groups to talk about their priorities, their plans, how they might lead the council and so on, there are the 51 members of the council, but there's also a lot of other players in the mix from powerful labor unions to members of Congress, the county party leaders. There's the Republican caucus and conference of the city council, which is now growing in light of the recent elections of the city just held there's mayor elect Eric Adams, of course, former speakers of the city council and more lots of people jockeying, lots of influence happening. But there's also really the nuts and bolts of this eternal internal race are relationship building, coalition building and as you've heard if you've listened to any of the other discussions on the podcast here with some of the candidates for city council speaker. The different candidates have different pitches that they've said they're making to their colleagues about why they should be the legislative leader, their vision for how they'd approach the job of speaker and its many responsibilities leading the legislative body. And there's a lot of room for putting your own imprint on the role and the cities. So I've been talking with the candidates for speaker, including my guest today. I'll be joined in just a second by city council member Diana, Ayala, who's a Democrat representing the 8th city council district, a very interesting district that includes east Harlem, but also parts of the south Bronx. It's one of the few council districts that stretches two boroughs, a lot to talk about here with Diana yala in just a second. If you've missed any recent episodes of the podcast, I have been talking, as I said with a number of the candidates for city council speaker about a mix of their government work and their bid to become the speaker, but.

Virginia Gubernatorial Election Proves Republicans MUST Vote

"We had a rebounding. Let's go Brandon across America last night and it just goes to show how important it is to get out and vote have a fantastic day. It was a bad night for Brooklyn. Brandon had a very, very bad night. America, the rest of America had a great night. And she's so right. May this put to bed once and for all. Any talk of staying home because you're afraid of the potential for cheating. I get it. I'm every bit as cynical as you are. I'm not very confident about the outcome in New Jersey. A lot of corruption in New Jersey. I get it, but doesn't Virginia prove doesn't Minneapolis prove. Does it the New York City council victories, the victory in Ohio, the victories and I mean, all over the country. There was a red wave. Understand and a wave of sanity. You must vote. We got a flood the polls. If it isn't close, they can't pull off the cheat, and we will win. And last night should silence once and for all. Every last one of those people who like to call radio shows, and I don't want to vote anymore. I didn't like the way I don't like that Biden one. I think they cheat, not knock it off. I've been saying it all along and I think for once and for all, that voice of malcontent gets to be silenced.

That's it we'll train. You had a phone big for us with our automatic automated dialer and then as a last incentive i one offer this the scrutiny end the standard in which i am held as a candidate in my district in comparison to my opponent is completely different. You know my opponent is a white woman. And i am a woman of color and i get questioned for my plans may ideas. I get pushed in intimidated. All the time and my opponent has no plans you go on her website where it goes to when you see gender roussy plans in it says error and she is also has relationships and has kept an insurrectionist a capital insurrectionist in power and. No one is asking for her to talk about that. No one talks about the fact that she's been running since nineteen ninety six and is the head of the queen's republican party. She also has relationships with of election because her son works there and currently near cities board of election is under investigation so there's a lot of corruption behind her name in behind who she is and she doesn't get held to the same standard in which a woman of color has to be here in the city and here in this in this race and so this is what i'm up against. I'm also against stephen. Ross who's one of the biggest billionaires real estate developers has now invested in my opponents race in is now sending smear mailers to everyone's home that's democrat across the district and so she's got billionaires behind her were real estate developers.

"In this run for office while that is one of the reasons. I absolutely wanted to speak with you. Because i really really celebrate your candidacy and your bold and brave. Move to put your hat in the ring for this rate than in speaking with you in researching for this. I am just bowled over by what you burn to. All of this. And i think that there is no question. Public safety is a very hot topic. Not only for new yorkers but really across the country but what's really fascinating as you offer perspective. That safety is never really been something owned own way. That is community. Based and in your estimation the reliance upon first responders the nypd has grown inordinately in your opinion at. Are you want to start with the basic question. Which i don't know that others of ast necessarily before let's expand what to safety mean for people. Let's make it bigger because right now. The definition is is rather small and so i want to ask you on that point. You also bring up the fact that social workers and care responders as well as emt's and ems are so important. And if you could speak to that. Absolutely i mean. Let's be frank here. I i hurt for our listeners. I want folks understand what de-fund means what abolish means why this conversation even has been so big as it is right now. De-fund means to re allocate a portion of money from one pool to another and redistribute funds abolish means to completely get rid of and now because of fear mongering and examples from the trump playbook of scaring people into believing something else. The words abolish defined have been mixed together. Now there are people who believe in defunding and abolishing the law enforcement budget and or police overall and those folks exists. Then you have folks who believe in defunding. The police by a certain amount that law enforcement should remain as they are but defunding will help redistribute funds for one from law enforcement budget to other parts of our city budget in so then you have the folks who are just not about reallocating any money from the law enforcement budget that we feel like we should just add more money because crime is on the rise. And that's the only way you can stop crime when i talk about public safety. I talk about what it's like to expand from the sources. We already have and do something else because with a budget that's about five point eight billion dollars next year or five point four billion dollars. Why is it that we have all this money. In this one pool. We still have cry. Why does crime exist at all. Why does gun violence exists at all if we have all of this money in this one pool and who's to say that if we put more their crime will decrease. We don't actually have evidence of that. So what i talk about. When i wanna see more of is the way we respond to. Certain crimes needs to change at certain crimes are crimes of rape are quite crimes of domestic violence or intimate partner violence and mental health disturbances in anything else that could really d. s. coney by having someone else responded to those calls rather than the police in district thirty two in the first quarter of twenty twenty one all three precincts had a Domestic violence reports rates at fifty percent or higher in the second quarter. They were fifty to sixty percent in twenty twenty one and what that tells us. Is that the more responding to something the more it is happening that the responding to crime or responding to the violence is actually not decreasing the violence. It is just a response. The violence happened already. And we're not preventing it more and more of this is going to be happening because the tool in which we use to respond to everything is not working and we need to admit that to ourselves. We need to admit that our shores for gun violence which is police response. Police being on every corner of every straight police. Patrolling police arresting police. You know all of these really. These things that police are charged with doing are actually not really correlating. With the data of decreasing crime overall in the city or in our communities and this is really hard conversation. This is a really hard conversation because we have been trained. We have been our lives revolve around one way to keep us safe and that is by calling nine one one and requesting a police officer that is the only system that exists. So what we're looking. At what i tried it to provide comfort add solutions towards is like okay. Nine one one is going to exist. But what if we called nine one one. You told someone what the situation was and the person tells you okay. Were actually going to have experts in respond to this because they are better equipped at if the situation escalates to be something violence. A police will be responding. Well we want to get there before it gets violence. We wanna get there before. It escalates to that extreme violence. And that's important because that's actually crime. Prevention and police are responding to crime currently when the crime has already happened so this is a hard conversation. It's a difficult one. It's one that takes a lot of nuance. It's it's one that takes a lot of teaching. And that's what i've been doing in the primary and now in the general it's just a face on conversation about the fact that we've actually given law enforcement as much money as we can over history of of time from like twenty fourteen to twenty ten to twenty two twenty twenty one and crime feels the same meal. Why people usually don't have an answer. That's pretty remarkable. I think you're one of the first candidates i've interviewed that has well at least phrased it in that format that you're right we. We really rely on one system which is called on one and law enforcement respond. But you've looked at the data and it hasn't helped apparently now. I will say that depend on the likely exacerbated many of the issues that you're that you pointed out just now but as you point out you can't create change when you're in the middle of a the situation that you have to step forward and and that sort of what you wanna do is shut the light on what can be done with effective results. I suppose for lack of a matter would well. I cannot believe that we are actually a purchasing the end of our time together. But i do want to ask you any other topics or any other message that you have for those listening right now again. Just so a deeply impressed you you work in. Life really has been serving and empowering people around you and just the fact that you're an educator with their deep immigrant roots and the first south asian woman. i believe we will be city council member. You're hearing it here. I care with us. What other closing comments or thoughts that you might have absolutely you know. We are fourteen days away from november. Second which is election day at the end of the day no matter what this is a numbers game and it's about how many democrats go out and vote and vote democrat and that's a really scary feeling. It's an uncomfortable feeling sometimes because even though the numbers are on our side it's all about who has the time in the ability to go on vote and we wanna make sure as many people can't so if you're listening you wanna get involved in our campaign in flipping the last republican district lou.

"File for bankruptcy my father included and i think it really taught me that you know the city doesn't really care about the everyday new yorker who serves our city and has built our city it cares about banks it cares about corporations and we cannot afford to have more representation. That does the same. We need to make sure that people who represent us understand what it's like because they to navigate systems because they've had to do that and it had to struggle through it and when people are in office that have had to navigate systems. That don't work for the everyday new yorker. They're the ones that are most likely to know how exactly it needs to be changed to better serve our community's well that makes so much chance at you know one of the points you've made throughout your campaign is that all of the issues facing new yorkers impact each other and you are unquestionably. A candidate who understands that intersection analogy plays a large role in the resources. People have or do not have in your district and you've mentioned some of them but nothing exists in a silo and whether it is transportation education debt the housing crisis. These are all occurring concurrently. And not only that. You have personally experienced these things and you've been very candid ensuring some of the struggles around housing as you just mentioned about your father. So you're walking the walk and experiencing mess and so can you speak to why you are really. Someone is going to center justice and place a long overdue focus upon the most marginalized and vulnerable people throughout the district. I think when. I need it with the lens of being decatur. You have to look at people in the intersection away. And you lead with empathy. You lead with this deep sense of courage that education plays a key role to the success of someone's economic security to their housing security towards their upward mobility. We know that school systems are very much correlated to the investment communities have in their neighborhoods schools create communities in communities create schools. Is one of the most common things i love to share about. The intersection analogy behind policy in our people. And i put it this way. You know schools investing in education. You might have a harder time seeing that return rate right away. That return rate comes back ten years later. Twenty years later when our school systems are ready deeply segregated there's so much infrastructure issues within our school systems literally also within our systems of our schools. And when i talk about our school systems here new york particularly school district here district thirty two. I put it this way. When family one investment homes in a community and there are new family or their new couple. They always look at a school district and decide whether or not it's worth investing in a home in that specific school district and they want to invest in a home where the property value is also high. So that they're having a return rate as well and that all goes together. Everything in terms of property value in the way community looks has everything to do with the school system as well and putting east key things together for people painting. That picture has been really remarkable. Because folks don't really think in this land and we don't think in this lands because the way we treat policy is piece by piece similar to our healthcare nor healthcare system. You have health care for your eyes for your teeth for your body. And they're all different coverages. When i'm trying to say let's stop doing that. And that's cover the whole person who they are and how we bill policies or to impact every piece of there being well that makes so much on top absolutely. I would say that it could be argued that the three biggest roles of city console are oversight new york city budget and public land use and you are especially excited about the opportunity to run hearings on the oversight as several apartments that you just spoke about and you've review missing various interviews. You're personally basing a house in crisis with your family because you had to file for bankruptcy and shootout in nineteen so again you are walking the walk. And sharing the most heartbreaking personal stories in the midst of the same types of crisis Others are facing in the city and facing a system that isn't working for people some most notably you mentioned in passing aretha even in the department of education they are working with data from two thousand eighteen to predict what children need in twenty twenty one and you boldly and rightfully question why especially post pandemic but as an educator it just appears that these systems and departments don't run for the people right now. Which is. i think why it's so important to have a candidate like yourself and the running and especially if you could speak to fundraising on what role that plays and all of this and and certainly not for you and your candidacy fundraising in regards to fundraising to run for office. While i think that you're very transparent insane that you're not doing this so that for the connections and allowing people to take contribution how you raise money for your campaign so that you can check a box and say oh. That person owes me a favor later or vice versa. You very very. I guess open in st in that you are here as somebody that is experiencing the stray as a lifelong resident and so having that transparency and back that part voyeur doing this job is really to make an impact upon the future. Generation of new yorkers. Yes absolutely you know. It's so important that we rewrite what it needs to be a politician because for a long time being a politician was being someone who is corrupt. Someone you couldn't trust someone who walked around in answer a never really answer the question and someone who was just deeply unreliable who was just there to fill their pockets of our tax dollars and i wanna be able to teach people that one. Anyone can run for office in that. Your experience is experienced enough to run for office to you. Don't have to do it by this playbook by the way that they've been we've seen politicians be portrayed in our media on social media on in movies in conversations that having caught even just breaking the missed or the taboo around having political conversations is one should start doing now because at the end of the day whether you vote or you don't or you wanna run officer you don't you trust people who are elected officials or you. Don't someone makes decisions for what you have what you don't have. And that is someone with political. Power and in reclaiming what political power looks like for us in our diaspora as stacey women as south asians. Or whomever's listening. However you identify it's really teaching folks and bringing them into what this process looks like particularly for women of color who overall in the united states when we look at the amount of women of color who hold political office. It's very few and then when you magnify that amount. It's very few south asians and then when you magnify that it's like it's really looking at who is able to take up space in the political realm wise in us. Why can't we get there and a lot of the hard work that we've been doing on the ground here in this race is bringing people in and letting them know that their space for them no matter what in our campaign and an.

"Welcome back to another episode of a deysi woman. Podcast i am your host sonia. Go klay and the voices. I am seeking may have never been heard before but their stories deserve to be told. What is they see woman. She's a dynamic fearless and strong woman. She is your mother your grandmother your daughter your sister. She is every one of us who is on an endless pursuit of self empowerment and fulfillment. I am sogno. Go klay and i am a deysi woman. Hello and welcome to another edition of a dc woman. Podcast i am your host. Sonia go quite a today. We are so delighted to welcome democratic candidate for new york. City council felicia saying felicia thing is a first generation american whose parents immigrated to this country from india and guyana respectively and she has a lifelong resident of ozone park. Felicia is a proud product of the new york city public schools and is running to bring equity and justice to council district thirty two in a historic campaign whereby six asian american candidates including felicia have one in the city council primary virtually ensuring that. New york's next city council would not only be the most diverse and the city's history but for the first time ever women will hold. The majority felicia is focused upon giving a voice to thousands of working class families. Living in district thirty two and if elected she is intent upon removing barriers which are keeping them from thriving which includes a focus on education climate change transportation housing and healthcare to name a few felicia. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. I'm really excited to be here while we are so excited to welcome you. And for those new yorkers or even global listeners who may not be familiar with felicia. You are a lifelong resident of ozone park. An educator and the daughter of to work in class emigrants the first and enter family to not only graduate from high school but also the first to earn collegiate degrees. And you dad is a taxi driver from punjab india. Your mom is a school bus matron from guyana and you are running in a historic campaign to represent district not to on the new york city council. What's really notable about this election for thirty cocco is that for the first time in the city's history just shocking to believe with a historic six asian american candidates one in the city council primary. And so there's no question that the next city council is poised to be the most diverse and history-making as women will hold the first majority ever and that is really striking but perhaps with even more striking is what is missing from the current city council. Which you hope to change. And i will quote you directly from a previous interview quote. There is no south. Asian zero zero south asian elected officials in new york city council. Get or community of district thirty two and neighboring communities have a large population of south asian. So i wanna pause there a moment. Because i have to say that makes her candidacy all the more exciting and so long overdue. What other thoughts or comments you have on that and how has been. The daughter of emigrants to this country informed your perspective as a human being an educator. A lifelong resident of district thirty two and now a candidate for city council will i. I think that what we saw in the primary was absolutely revolutionary. It was amazing to see so many asians within the diaspora winder elections and represents their asian communities. Which is so monumentous for this time. It's twenty twenty one and the fact that in twenty twenty one we finally have a new city council demographic that represents the city is really something that is both alarming and beautiful at the same time and it tells you just right there how difficult it is for women to run for office for women of color to run for office and win it takes so much more and being daughter of immigrants and being someone who's coming from a working class background south asian backgrounds. Who's a teacher. Our communities across the city especially here in the thirty second city council district are becoming more and more diverse. in fact we're the majority not only. Do we have majority democrats in my city council district. We also have majority of communities of color in so because we're the majority. It's kind of like. Hey we're the majority let's act like it. Let's actually make sure we're building political power and seeking the representation. We have a right to and that's the work that i'm doing running for office and having one my primary which is really exciting but the next feet is currently right now in the most competitive general election at least in queens or a near city as repegging pegging this race to be. Because i'm running in the last. Republican district includes while absolutely you know. Your platform focuses upon centering education equity and environmental justice and in restrict for this interview. I was deeply impressed with how uniquely qualified you are for this moment and the needs of district thirty two and much of that comes from your jacket long experience as an educator which you call quote the greatest honor of your life and i want to quote your because this background. It's really informed you as a candidate and you state quote. It taught me that children no matter where they go to school or where they come from a what. Their circumstances are deserve a fully funded education with the resources that they need to be successful in this world. And you realize that. for all. New yorkers your vocation or work should it cost people their lives or their livelihood but he does for most working class communities it does for people who don't qualify for stimulus checks and are undocumented at it does for so many other marginalized groups and most notable you call out the fact that what's really missing from city council or people would not just advocate and talk about issues but actually experienced them an experienced systems. That don't have never worked for people and much of that is actually paraphrased from quotes by you and other interviews as you aptly point out those are the people who know exactly what to change about our systems. And that's why you are running and so can you offer more about this perspective and your campaign. Yeah you know. I know the life of living paycheck to paycheck and with unstable employment and mounting debt. And really what it's taught us and my family. My neighbors is that are mere city. Systems are very are built in a really complex way. There's so much red tape. There's so much waiting and waiting and waiting. You know you do the right thing as a working class person. You pay your bills. You follow the law. You take out the trash when you're supposed to you recycle. You do all the things of what it needs to be community member. You invest in homes or. Maybe you're a renter. You try your best to pay rent on time and full and the city systems doesn't have anything to do with with being able to give you some sort of ease as a new yorker one of the systems that i think is really designed to fail was our medallion. Crisis is our medallion system which has caused a crisis. We're seeing right now on the ground. Where hundreds of thousands of taxi drivers are protesting outside chamber street and murray demanding. That the mayor at city guarantee to his current plan for supposed- debt relief. And this is something that the city was negligent in doing. And they are for the predatory lending that has caused sony taxi drivers to.

Mike Chats With Chad Prather, Republican Candidate for Texas Governor

"I was first introduced to Chad pray that when I heard about his book, am I crazy and unapologetic patriot takes on the insanity of today's woke world. He's our kind of person. Chad prather is an American conservative political commentator, comedian and Internet personality. That's the official bio. He's also a Texas gubernatorial candidate and been described as sort of a modern day Will Rogers. Chad has great meaning and thanks for joining us here on the Mike Gallagher show. How you doing? Hey, Mike, it's good to be with you. I'm a big fan of the show love what you do. I appreciate you having me on. Well, I'm a big fan of your show and your work as well. Your podcast is terrific. And your book, two thirds of the way through because I need some affirmation that I'm not the crazy one. My late wife Denise used to say, we had a running joke. If you're crazy, do you know it? And I think it's a fair question. So when, for example, the New York City council votes unanimously to remove the statue of Thomas Jefferson because he owned slaves. When Lori Lightfoot poses maskless in a crowd full of people indoors violating her own mask mandate, all these things that keep happening over and over again, you and I know they're crazy, but Chad the $64,000 question for you as we begin this conversation, do they know they're crazy? I think the asylums are empty, Mike, I think they're running the street, not just running the street, but they're creating the policy and the culture we're living in. Unfortunately, we've given them a big voice. No, they don't know they're crazy. They think that this is their ideal. They think that they're doing something really good for the planet and doing things for the world that is absolving us all of our great sins of the past and history. Now, I think we're all at some level on the insanity spectrum. We have to be a little bit crazy just to make heads or tails of what we're seeing across the

"We're in our last few minutes here Unfortunately with jessica holler of twenty one and twenty one in crystal hudson a democratic candidate for city council in brooklyn Ask you chris a little bit about your race specifically you had a very competitive race Mainly it came down to you and another candidate michael hollingsworth. What do you think Just broadly speaking. What do you think really made the difference in your victory. What do you attributed to Was one of the most watched city council races really throughout the city. And that's. I'm glad you could join us today What do you think really made the difference here in this highly competitive race you. I had the biggest broadest and most diverse coalition of support and. I think that's really what did it. We had everyone from our nights attendant leaders and other tenant leaders in the district To you know clergy members of all faiths you know. We had herons teachers longtime residents new residents young people you know. I recently heard from one of the young folks that was on my on my team. We did a fellowship and she said you know so. Many other candidates talked about bringing in young people. But you actually did it. And i'm so grateful for the opportunity you for you provided me with. She's a college student but we had high school students on our team. you know a real intergenerational team an organization and campaign that we ran and i've said from day one i'm here represent everybody. I'm not here to represent just some people. I'm not here. Represent only the people who look like me are only the people who agree with me. One hundred percent of the time on one hundred percent of the issues. That's not what leadership isn't it. Certainly not what governing is. And so i think you know that in addition to my vision for a new york city that works for all of us not just some of us really resonated with folks. I think together. We know that we can build new york city That looks like that. And so I think that's what resonated with folks and i'm really excited to be going onto to hopefully win the general the third district and as you look ahead to this class of council members with a majority of women you look ahead to your role in that And one of the biggest decisions you'll have to make coming up. There was some talk about this at the press conference yesterday. How are you thinking about the importance of whether a woman is the next city council speaker coming out of of this achievement of of this group of candidates where we're heading with the likely majority in the city council and also many other factors at play. Are you thinking about that question. You know. I think a majority woman body should be led by a woman and i think the speakership is the last you know city wide position of leadership that you know sort of up for grabs and i think it would be a real sort of referendum on everything that's going on right now in twenty twenty one if we were able to have a woman as our next speaker of the city council and is there a particular candidate or returning member who are supporting that position. No sir there's not everybody..

"And trying to indicate to voters how they should make their choices among women running in the same race. Let's say What was the decision behind that. How do you think that that went in this cycle. Where again with ranked voting as you said you were able to endorse seventy four women across thirty seven districts which is incredible number. But what's behind that decision. How do you think it went. So i'm speaking for the organization but also understand that i was one of those women with early endorsed five organization and absolutely appreciated that. So i'll start with that perspective when you sit down to fill out these endorsement packets whether it's an advocacy group or labor union. The first question they ask is who else's endorsing you and it's the courage to be the early endorser that i think provide provides the value. I know two people like me. And i heard so many women say yesterday that coming out early and support and seeing we are with you whether it's rank one rank to rank three. We are with you and we're going to help you from an early moment is incredibly valuable. It's not so valuable coming out six days before an election to say we're helping radio Rate rate but the real help doing it early. The endorsement process was very thorough.

"And her life experience that i've watched from from the bronx. Is that wheat. Women take a generational outlook whether you're a caretaker for a parent or a child is the women have a generational longer term outlook from the past into the future. And we need that in government we need to think longer term and not just bend over the parking outside or fight over the things that people are really genuinely worried about right now but we need to look up and think about our older adults or children investment in human infrastructure. That's going to get us beyond the issues and keep us safe and successful in the future in women have a tremendous capacity to do that. I think it was getting. I think we're going in a similar direction. Which but. But i still want to ask because it goes a little further from what you just said and both view. Please jump in here. But what would you say to new yorkers you know again assuming things go the way Everybody sort of expects them to go into general election. There could be a seat here or there you know that goes one way or the other but the bulk of the primary winners will certainly win the general election. Probably nearly all if not all what does it. What does it really gonna mean and look like when this next class of city council members is seated. Are there concrete issues. You expect to be tackled. That might not have been tackled or ways of thinking about things or a relationship with the next mayor. Who is very likely to be eric adams and we have this sort of all male citywide Elected leaders most likely mayor. Public advocate controller. Are there issues Additional issues that. You didn't mention that you expect to be sort of at the forefront. Are there ways of thinking about things are there policies. What what concretely do you think this might mean for new yorkers Come january and beyond you know all issues are women issues. The same way that all issues are eligible t q issues and all issues are black and brown issues You know so when we think about. Housing education are care economy. That's something that you know. I think women will bring particularly unique perspective on In something that we don't value right. We don't value our care. Economy because it is predominantly women predominantly women of color is predominantly immigrant women. And so i am excited to be working with all these women who know and understand firsthand The value of our care economy and how we can ensure dignity and protections for the people working in in an throughout our economy. But i think the issues know every issue. Like i said is is a women's issue and so Know we are ready to hit the ground running on day. One to ensure that everybody has a roof over their head that all of our kids have access to a quality education.

"We have the first muslim woman ever elected. We have some of first. South asian folks elected to the city council. I mean this is quite literally a year of unprecedented representation in new york city. And i think it's it's about time it's it's really remarkable. We were writing up a had a reporter writing up forgotten. Gazette the the press conference yesterday that that you'll had with so many of the Winning candidates and even some candidates who who weren't successful who were part of the effort and part of this work and the number of firsts as you were just getting many of them is is. It's you know we needed multiple paragraphs just to just to cover the number of first year. It's really a really remarkable. I was a little bit unsure about whether to start with where we started. Or start with this question. Because i think for some people self evident for some people. They really have a problem answering this question. Chris let's stick with you. Why does this matter. You know you get some questions from people about Why there's such a focus on on gender-balanced why visit a make a difference to really highlight views demographic traits. What's your response when people ask why so much. Focus on this. Or why is this so important. You know women do lead differently. I think we've seen that across the world where we have other countries who have elected Years ago you know the first woman to lead nations. We have yet to have that here in the us. Of course. but. I think you know we know that women lead differently and i think this is a mandate on our vision for universal housing for all for equitable schools ending racist police saying real investments in black and brown communities. You know dignity and wellness for seniors. Which is something. I talked about a lot and truly recovery that at centers in uplift those of us who are most marginalized those of us who have the greatest needs. You know jessica mentioned Or sorry i think it was. You actually ben. You mentioned that there were folks who showed up to yesterday's press conference who weren't successful in their races right. that's what happens when women are in leadership positions. We all show up to support one another regardless of whether we were on the winning side or not You know from this budget cycle. But the last budget cycle. I wrote an op. Ed six other women running in brooklyn two of whom were running in the same race against each other. You know that's the type of leadership you get When you have you know majority women and we do make decisions differently again. I think that's what voters have have selected right. They've seen what is possible. I think and they believe in our vision for coming out of not just the pandemic but the economy the racial reckoning everything we've seen and women also live on the margins right especially for somebody like like me who's quite literally never seen myself represented in electoral politics. You know i'm black. i'm gay. I'm a woman. And i know that. I will lead with those of us who are most marginalized prioritize and centered in everything. I do because. I know what it's like to be marginalized now and i know what it's like to be overlooked and undervalued and i want to ensure that we're building a new york city that works for all of us and noxious some of us and i think that's why this matters just go.

"How did how did the Reach goal just get totally blown away By this effort and others and is there anything else sort of in the air. I mean you know. I don't think. I don't think anybody involved. Twenty one in twenty one would would obviously take all the credit for what we've seen here. But how did it happen that. This organization has seen such success with beating that goal. And what were the other factors. You think Were at play. Just go on you. Why you sir. I see four factors at play. The first ranked choice looting rain choice voting means that you can't say to someone who don't don't enter the race because there's another woman or don't enter the racers another black candidate you're going to split the vote. Don't enter the race rate. You're gonna the notion of competing amongst yourselves is gone and the notion of supporting more women and a full slate and twenty one and twenty one specifically leaned interesting choice. Voting and in many races ranked one two three four candidates and we saw that even some of the winners were part of that and we helped our candidates engage in rachel swooning so that the women were particularly supporting each other The other factor. I see is the matching funds program. Amplifying small dollar donations city is the most progressive matching funds program in the country that allows people without institutional support to step up. And say i'm gonna do this through community through grassroots. The other factory seat is the moment we are in from cova highlighting disparities and impact on women particularly women of color. That we we're going to step up and even prior to kobe. The notion that we needed equal representation trickling in from the business world to say that when women lead differently they have longer term outlook. They have bring a better culture better communication listening skills. These are absolutely transferable to politics and then the fourth is what i mentioned. Which is this whole movement of women's organizations that isn't old movement but now finally focusing right here at the municipal level. So i see it as those those pieces and in twenty one and twenty one leading into that helping women with our cd all being the women Understand cfp you. the campaign. finance board and the matching un's program altogether. We got there. And the last thing i'll say is that it also then depends on a district by district battle rate. Each district has a different story in this story as we highlighted yesterday. For example is the bronx dams. Really getting the establishment organizations to realize that they too need to support the women. And i think what was mark viverito specifically went head first into that. She ran up against as she went to the labor unions and they went to the establishment. They said you need to support women and that's a lot of the work that twenty one and twenty one did anything to add. add to that crystal. I think just the fact that voters selected an elected This majority women class of council members. I think regardless of what we've seen at the top of the ticket People have made it very clear that they're ready for a progressive City council one that is led by women op majority women one. That has you know six. Lgbtq identified folks. Four of whom are women than you know. Three of whom are women of color. I mean these are all first rate. I i'm going to be one of the first gay. Black woman ever elected in new york city..

We don't actively get behind promoting women particularly inner city council were never going to achieve gender parity. Remember their fifty one seats in the council so the organization came together behind a handful of candidates. A couple of whom just won their primaries like marjorie blazquez s twenty seventeen they ran and the organization was created with in consultation with the sister organizations as i refer to them which sort of the movement of women's organizations supporting women running for office from the federal level and across the country. Vote mama eleanor's legacy emily's list women of color for progress on and on and on and none of them were particularly focused on the city council or on municipal levels of government to twenty one and twenty.

They remind i endorse getting out ahead and saying we're standing with women bringing them training access to fundraising resources than all the way to the moments in the weeks leading up to their elections which we brought them boots on the ground and the volunteers and then for now until january.

There weren't primaries. There are general election nominees awaiting other primary winners and on we go to analyze the primary results and what it all means look ahead to the general election continue following the final months of the blasio administration look ahead to the next class of city government and so much more.

The city's legislative body. It looks like we're going to go from fourteen women members to as many as twenty eight twenty nine thirty. Maybe even thirty one.

Here's my conversation with two people that helped make that happen. Jessica howler the executive director of the organization. Twenty-one in twenty one which as you'll hear was founded in twenty seventeen targeting these very twenty twenty one new york city election to try to ensure that there would be at least twenty one women in the city council and they are clearly going to surpass that goal in remarkable fashion and also crystal hudson one of the candidates. I'm one of the very likely next city council members. Hudson won a very tough primary in brooklyn in district thirty five and she joins as well to discuss both the larger trends and her race.

Something that you're passionate about. What pushed you into this race. Yeah for me. I never saw myself as someone who wanted to run for office. But i think i was really just tired of having a kind of government. That doesn't actually respond to the working people so for me. I am the daughter of a taxi driver. My dad has been a taxi driver for nearly thirty years. Now but we have been dealing with a taxi medallion debt crisis for about seven years at this point. And so i look back at points in my life like back. In two thousand fourteen where the markets were being inflated artificially by medallion brokers who really preying on a majority of immigrant working class people who thought that a taxi medallion would be a really worthwhile. Investment was worth a mill- a million dollars back in the ninety s and into the early two thousands so in that market we came under almost hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt almost overnight and it is devastating for so many families that are close to us our neighbors our family friends and when you look at the state of our city these are the kinds of workers who generate worth of revenue.

Activists, Anna Arnold Hedgeman

"Today we're talking about a trail-blazing political activist and educator. She was the first black woman to be a member of a oral cabinet in New York City and the only woman on the administrative committee for the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. Let's talk about Anna. Arnold. Henchmen. Anna was born in eighteen ninety nine in Marshall Town. Iowa. Her family later moved to a NOCA- where they were the only black family in the community. In Nineteen Eighteen Anna graduated from high school and enrolled in Hamline University. It was there that she heard a lecture by w e boys and was inspired to pursue a career in education. In nineteen twenty two Anna was the first African American to graduate from HER UNIVERSITY After graduation unable to find a teaching job in Saint Paul Public schools because she was black and found a teaching job but historically, black school in Mississippi called Rust College. On her train ride down south to her new job in Mississippi Anna, had her first experience with Jim. Crow segregation laws a train conductor told her that when the train reached Illinois had to sit in the overcrowded colored section and not in the dining car white people sat. Anna spent two years at rust college before turning to Minnesota. Unable to find a teaching job after once again, facing racial discrimination, she switched careers. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and became an executive director of the black. Branch of the Young Women's Christian, association or the YWCA. She continued her executive role for twelve years helping to develop various international programs and education. In nineteen thirty, three Anna married folk musician merit a henchman. In nineteen forty, four Anna was appointed executive director at the F. E. P. C.. The national. Council for a Permanent Fair Employment Practices Committee. She spearheaded the fight against employment discrimination. From nineteen, fifty, four to nineteen fifty eat anna served in the cabinet of Robert F Wagner Junior then New York mayor. She was the first african-american and first female member of a mayoral cabinet. For the next few years she worked in a variety of roles including as a columnist as well as as a public relations consultant. In one thousand, nine, fifty, three Anna spent three months in India as next leader for the State Department. She also unsuccessfully ran for Congress in one thousand, nine, hundred sixty and for New York City Council president in Nineteen. Sixty five. One of Anna's most famous feats was her role in the nineteen, sixty, three march on Washington. We hold these choose to be self-evident. That, all men are created. Was the only woman on the administrative committee working with civil rights leaders, Martin Luther King, junior, Bayard Reston. And Eighth Phillip Randolph. Mobilize people to attend to arrange transportation logistics and to organize food and water for attendees fell on Anna's pleat because King Randolph and the other men she wrote for carrying on all of their regular responsibilities and it was difficult to get them to the meetings. Shortly before the march. Anna was angry when she saw that no women were included as speakers instead randolph was planning to briefly mention some black women activists in his speech although Anna strongly urged for women to be included a speakers on the program her calls were largely dismissed. In the end as a compromise, daisy beats was allowed to speak at the end of the march but her allotted speech time was significantly shorter than all the other male speakers. Anna later captured in her autobiography a moment during the March as she sat in front of the steps of the Lincoln. Memorial. I thought of the one, hundred, eighty, thousand Negro soldiers and the twenty nine thousand black seamen who had moved in at the crucial moment to win the war and save the fragile union she wrote. Most of the two hundred and fifty thousand people present could not know of these men for the history books available to Americans have failed to record their story. In the Nineteen Seventies Anna continued her work as an author and lecturer in the US and abroad. She wrote two books about her life's work. The trumpet of sounds in Nineteen, sixty four and the gift of chaos in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven. Anna was honored for her working race relations by various organizations throughout her life and was awarded honorary doctorate degrees from both Howard and Hamline University's. She also received the Pioneer Woman Award in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three from the New York State Conference on Midlife and older women. Anna died in nineteen ninety she was ninety years old.

And they're just an old, you know, all African Americans there because they're descendants of slaves. Okay? Ah, not a big shitting, You know, It's a very hippy type of area. Yeah, and it's the local taxpayers will pay the reparations. They said they're not going to mandate direct payments, but they will be making investments in areas where black residents face disparity. Checkoff box. No problem. Um, hey, if you want your local community to pay reparations, good. I have a feeling that a lot of people who may not be an agreement will move. So you're against that because they're saying it's not simply enough to remove statues that black people in this country mean what? Me more money, Basically, no, no. If they want to impose another tax on people who already overtaxed settle down south a lot less than we are here. Crying. If you want to live in that city, you pay reparations. If you're not happy with that, you move out so that I think this will happen here. I think this is going to be a way. This is the first city that's doing this.

So a $1,000,000,000 going away and for the life of me, I don't understand. This whole argument. And if somebody out there any of you that are of like mind about defunding the police or reforming the police or whatever it is Can you explain to me how taking money away? Will help. Because if you have fewer police officers, I think there is a correlation between the number of police officers and the amount of crime. And by the way, The crime rate in New York City. Is skyrocketing. Shootings in New York City in the last year are up 342%. Shooting victims. The number of people that got hit by bullets up 414%. No, this isn't You know a rounding error. These are huge increases. And there's a lot of people that I talk do there going, I wonder if it's going to be safe. To go back into New York City wants his pandemic is over. The bad old days, man. New York was a bad, bad, bad place to go to There were muggings and murders and robberies and on the streets. I had a friend of mine. Who we were working together out in California. And I remember he came to Ah investment conference he had to attend. In the heart of of Manhattan, right in midtown Manhattan. He stayed at this luxury hotel right on fifth and 55th. I mean, you can't find a nicer area of New York City. It's very, very Lux. And he and his buddy, That's the time they were, I guess. Around 30 In good shape, too young, healthy guys. They go out. They're going to go for a walk. I don't know where they were going. They go about 1/2 a block from the hotel. And two guys came up to them. I broke a wine bottle open and so that it would act as a as a weapon, and, uh, and threatened and want their money. And these two young guys decided. No, we're not going to give it to you. Well, one guy took the broken wine bottle. Flash the face of this of this guy that was with my friend. And lost his eye. Cut his eye cut his cheek cut his face. That that was those were the bad streets of New York City. That was Mayor David Dinkins. So Rudy Giuliani, who, you know, he's a different man today, I think than he was then Rudy Giuliani came in. He was the he was the U. S attorney. Other Southern district of New York. He got elected mayor. And he got elected mayor. I'm going. I'm going. Stop this crime wave that we have in New York. One of my producers told me that he wouldn't He lived. He and his lived with his parents in New Jersey and they would come through. Manhattan up through Broadway. Into the Broadway district, the theater district. And he wasn't secured. They were going to go see his grand parents. He said. I remember my my parents used to tell me I was just a child. That when they would get into the Times Square area that I they said, Get on the floor. Get on the floor. Do not look out. Do not look out there because they were prostitutes. And strip clubs and new new new girls. Girls, Girls, Big neon signs This place was it was just trashed. So Rudy comes in. Cracked down on crime. Uses smart new technology. Add crime fell like a rock. And it stayed that way through Rudy's tenure is mayor and it stayed that way through the three terms of Mike Bloomberg. Bloomberg was also no nonsense guy when it came to crime. So those were the those were the bad days to the good days, and the good days have been really good. New York has been the safest big city in the country. Crime has been down to next to nothing. And so now it's skyrocketing in the last year under Mayor de Blasio So Mayor De Blasio says, Yeah, I know what I know what we need to do. What? I don't like cops. He's made it clear he doesn't like cops. There were a couple of police officers that were shot and killed while they were sitting in their squad car. When he first became.

"He's they'll never get credit for saving New York and New Jersey and Pennsylvania and because none of those states did anything except put old people in harm's way. It's frustrating on a lot of levels I cannot and I don't think anybody can say with any certainty. Although be great to see the media choke on the words, we can now project that Donald J. Trump has been reelected the 45th president of the United States that would be worth the price of admission. Absolutely, and by the way, when I repeated a similar Litani to the president told him his base was still rock solid, with over 90% of Republicans voting for a 46% likely voter national approval. He said To me, one thing, he said. And you left out. They tried to impeach me for two years, so considering everything he hate to say, I hate to correct the president, but it's really been a four year campaign. Yes, Absolutely. Absolutely. But But But when you think about it, by the way, the issues he's got courage and the issues of turning his way. In that national Paula just mentioned to you. We did a poll for secure America. Now we asked him. Do you think the funding the local police is a good idea or bad idea? The majority of Americans said bad idea. 57 30. And guess what the New York City Council decided to do yesterday, and that included by the way, 43% Democrats 30 for African Americans, 48% of his tax bad idea. And the key is Do you think the funding local police would cause crime to increase? 68% said yes and that one across the board by every political party, every ideology, including 53% of liberals and 47% of African Americans, 69% of Hispanics. I mean, what are they thinking? And they're handing Donald Trump this issue. And he's putting out today because he's going to stand behind law enforcement and he's going to make us feel safe. Joe Biden won't Joe Biden won't stand up here and sing that press conference. You were talking about the travel ban in China. They never asked him about. He's criticising the president for Corona virus and never mentioned that he was against banning travel from China. They don't ask him where he stands on de funding the police and guess what? When he said he goes through testing all the time. They didn't ask him to release any cognitive tests because he know if it's that testing or other testing you, Scott, But he doesn't probably remember either. Stay right there.

"One eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two now we've been talking about restaurants and I read an article about a restaurant in Sweden and another one in Denmark with the one in Denmark has these little glass enclosures in greenhouses and whatnot and I thought that was really interesting because that's how they're going to be isolating people is another one that just has these separate one person dining tables it by yourself which is kind of interesting in and of itself is who goes to a restaurant to eat by themselves but maybe a diner I get you but you can't do this because the six feet apart whatever but speaking of restaurants there is the bill that was just put into the New York City Council now this is interesting because it's about canceling rent payments and mortgage payments for restaurants in the city and it's been expanded to include private citizens and this is the part that I feel like wow this is serious business because there's even a built in the United States Senate where they're proposing a hundred billion dollars for emergency rent relief so this pay rent stuff is a really really big topic and we're gonna jump into it but about a week ago my favorite congresswoman from the fourteenth district in New York Alexandria Ocasio Cortez better known as AOC all out crazy from Bronx and queens she had something to say and I want you to listen to what she had to say about suspending rent and mortgage payments with the hash tag cancel rent movement listen to this we need to make sure that we're taking very clear federal action to suspend both mortgage and rent payments in this time now that sparked the movement where activists in Kentucky and other places had a lot to say they've been in Albany they've been everywhere but I want you to listen to this one activist in Kentucky to get a sense of what's going on are here today to fight for rent mortgages you can't calling here to do that well many people have lost their income and if people can't work they can't pay the rent nobody should be left homeless from this we should be getting evicted from something that's completely out of their control they're trying to do the right thing to keep the virus from spreading we want people to know that everyone deserves housing we can't demand that this gets canceled and people don't have to have another thing on their plate to worry about what others can so while it's interesting that she says everyone deserves housing I've got a couple of thoughts there number one is we need her here in New York because there's so many homeless people here in New York she should be advocating for them but number two did she not someone she was high as a kite if I didn't know she was a Kentucky I would've thought she was in Colorado or puff puff give in Los Angeles but that has inspired others including L. Hurley and yes by everybody I mean the king the king himself E. sensual Andy Cuomo from the anti Cuomo daily podcast that's right you guys know him Andy Cuomo is now onboard extending rental payments receiving rental of the cancellations to me just double check here the date the pauses going until six six that's the pause New York but he's extending rental cancellation through August listen to this Andrew Cuomo we're going to take additional steps of banning any late payment fees because a person couldn't pay the rent during this period of time also allowing people to use the security deposit as a payment and they can repay it over a prolonged period of time so what I want to know is what's your story you know New York I want to know are you paying your rent or you're not paying your rent are you a landlord how is this affecting landlords because I'm using language have to turn around and pay mortgages and some mortgage companies I know we're I guess deferring payments so that it would be on the backend but this guy's going through March our city to August will the bank support that so I wanna know I wanna hear from you give us a call one eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two one eight hundred eight four eight W. A. B. C. let's go to the phones let's go to Sarah in the Bronx what's going on your own ritual this highly how are you how are you great numbers show thank you zero sh yeah it's I think it's very crazy that we have a governor that he's supporting people not abiding by a contract to everybody who signed a lease contract signed to pay rent for you know for a period of time in this governor is coming in and saying Hey look you don't have to pay your rent for thirty sixty ninety days and now we are extending it to a hundred and twenty days and what's next like you don't have to pay your rent for the next six months meanwhile he does not care that are the owners property owners have property taxes to pay mortgages to pay maintenance repairs to pay water utility and it's not fair that some people are being encouraged by the government to knowledge how is this personally and I definitely hear your point how is this personally affecting you well I you know I'm a property owner you know I depend on the rent to operate the building to operate that property and it's not fair that you know go up proposals like this are affecting everybody so what does that position help us understand that so right now you obviously have to provide whatever maintenance or whatever you have to do you know if somebody just a question out of ignorance do you provide a refrigerator to your tenants yes of course okay so if that refrigerator breaks tomorrow when you you have to replace that yes I have to replace it in within twenty four hours because I mean it's an emergency right so you've got to go out and spend six seven hundred Bucks but they're allowed to not pay you they're allowed to not pay rent for until August twentieth so is there any relief for you can you say Hey look I can't buy a a refrigerator no absolutely there's no relief there's only mortgage forbearance for the next for that until June but but all the money is is is expected to be paid back it's not like it's free for me from the market is not free I have to pay it all back in and and on June twentieth he hasn't said anything about so you're saying that L. raid the king Andy Cuomo from the anti Cuomo daily podcast is not going to pay for your refrigerator he's not no he's not and I'm expected to have the money immediately and not just our first refrigerator anything can go wrong have rules need to repair that's an emergency repair water sewer can break that's an emergency thousands of dollars every pair you can happen at any time and it can happen to anybody how are we supposed to come up with the money for not receiving any rent for the next six months that's an excellent question and I appreciate your call Sarah because I want to get another call on the same topic because we got somebody in Brooklyn that's got four hundred units and I want to know what's your take on this Tony let me know what's on your mind with that with respect to this because I mean Sarris talking about a couple places that she's were owns and manages what's it like at that level with four hundred units hi my name is Tony anyway and what's happening is this of for the most part you know dealing with the tenants attendance there understandable and so are the landlords landlord understands that prices are we in and basically flat panel comes up and says they'll come out of work right now I'm waiting for some money I don't know when I'm going back understandable so basically you all all all all all the thing is to say Hey look Hey whatever you can right now if you don't have the full amount of the rent to pay part of it Hey something by make some payments so how is this new executive order going to affect you where they don't have to pay through August that that is terrible because that's going to be mostly is going to be our viewers by some tenants although the some of this panel van Mundy and maybe they have the money to go buy a thousand dollar pocketbook one hundred number viral wine going to say I don't have to pay the rent now and one of our dependence that may be ours already been in court for five months or six months in New York City especially it takes you a year before you know that the tenant now you're given this Tanner visual time why we allow this people to abuse the system you know what and I think you're a hundred percent spot on I think we need to be able to provide relief but we have to be fair relief has to go to both the landlord the bank if with the government's gonna get involved I need to be fair or let people just work things out on their own because in real life people go through hard times and yeah we're going through it in mass but it's still something that we've been to before we have to figure out how to deal with again keep it locked right there you're listening

Melissa Mark-Viverito Discusses Stop & Frisk Policies

"I'm Jim Taylor. Skinner in this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with Melissa Mark Viverito. She's the former speaker of the New York City Council and prior to that. She was a council member in New York. During Michael Bloomberg's tenure as mayor currently Melissa Mark Viverito is running for Congress. In New York's Fifteenth Congressional district. But she's really concerned about what she saw during her tenure as a city council member around Bloomberg Stop and Frisk Policy. She joins me to talk about what it was like on the ground for folks that community of happened when she spoke out against harmful policies like stop and Frisk. So here's my conversation with Melissa Mark Viverito Melissa Mark viverito welcome. Thank you so much for the invitation. No thanks for joining me on such short notice. You were New York City Council member doing Bloomberg's mayorship and I think he was mayor. From what two thousand to two thousand thirteen. Yeah you became speaker after that but but you were on the Council City Council while he was mayor enduring the stop and Frisk policy so you know it really well yes. I was in office for a second and third term and this issue of stop and Frisk was something that those of us. The progressive members in the city council really were pushing hard against and it's a tremendous policy racist policy that many of the communities that we represented were deeply impacted by it so there is a consistency in. And there's a interviews that I gave and statements that I've made in testimony provided over time talking about the detrimental effects than end encouraging the the administration at the time to reconsider and unfortunately a lot of nuts. All in-depth ears. He has so I just want to just jump right in and talk about the elephant in the room because he's running for president now. I think I am assuming. He's going to be on the debate stage tonight you know. He's rising in the polls right and I think that's baffled a lot of people but I think there's a couple of groups of people there people who were in New York City at the time and who like yourself are really familiar with the policy and you know have always had problems with it then. People were kind of like marginally aware knew. It was bad but didn't necessarily live through it and then are there are people who have no clue about what stop and Frisk is and I think that's why he may be doing so well in the polls right now I mean. Look he is trying to buy this election. Inundating flooding social media mainstream media with ad buys where he's trying to recreate who he is and what his legacy is. And that's troubling right. This is what the problem is a great inequity in our country but we have the ability for money to overpower debate democratic processes. And that is the issue at hand right here. We are those of us that fought back not only on stop-and-frisk but many other policies of boobs legacy at administration's you know he's going out and being able to cast a wide net. Because of the wealth study has to really repaint himself in reposition positioned himself as some sort of a progressive. You know a success story. And that's for those of us that live this reality and fought against it. It's very troubling trends. So you know. I think it's incumbent upon that fought back to really alert others about what life was like in New York City under these racist policies and so it really is a symbol. I think Lemberg candidacy. A symbol of what is wrong with our country at the moment the vast inequity accumulation of wealth in the hands of a few the ability for that community wealth to not have an impact on our policy our debate or discussion. You can't get more anti-democratic than that but I'm just curious. Because the thing is is that he's doing well in a demographic that you wouldn't expect like he's doing well amongst black black constituents right. In comparison to some of the other candidates I think depending on the poll he may be second or third behind Biden or behind sanders. I just don't have an explanation as to why that is other than what you said. His money is using his money to kind of blanket. The airwaves and people are unfamiliar with this policy of his many policies that hurt black and brown communities agreed. And I think that that's what it is is that he is able to put a message out there through his. I is that really does run counter to what we were living on the ground now. Granted part of the conversation. That's been happening with. Stop and Frisk is is. Oh you know. We were taking guns off the street and making our community safer. Who's GONNA disagree with that? If that's the message that you're getting at the reality is no. That is not true. That is not what happened. He did fund nationally. Some of these antigun violence efforts but on the ground implementing policy that we're creating great divisions with communities of Color and police that was giving a lot of hesitation criminalizing a whole generation of young and the communities in which they resided and data something easily overcome. We are still living the consequences of those policy so when we talk about someone who was to be the president of the United States that wants to represent This great diversity that exists in this country when someone has presented policies. That have really been hurtful to us. And you know it's it's not something that the akin brace and that I don't think it's genuine when he's talking about. Oh well in you every considered and I've come to understand that this was hurtful. Well there were those of us. Eight ten twelve years fighting you by demonstrating the data. That would prove that. Basically disproved what you were saying and yet you turn your tossed so that does not really bode. Well someone who wants to be a president for all right and being inclusive president so. I think that this is really troubling. And that's why it's important for us to really present the real the real record in and let me be very clear. I think that Bloomberg's candidate C. Has just as much to do with the Warren in a sanders on the policies. That date present as much as it is about trump and You know the issue of the inequity that exists of making sure that people are paying their fair share of making sure corporations are paying their taxes of making sure. The wealthy are paying more. Those are policies that clearly Bloomberg has against. He's been vocal around that and he basically expressed in so many terms that he does not want to see a warrant or a sanders in office because of the economic policies that they embrace so. Let's I don't want people to forget that right is not just about trump. This is also about economic policies that he is not supportive of which are policies that are demanding a more equity in our system. So that's important as well. So can you tell us a little bit about what was happening on the ground because I was slushing an interview the other day of someone who was a teenager during that time and he was talking about the anxiety and the fear that people felt just walking home from school and not knowing where you're going to be thrown against the wall or not you know what was it like on the ground so my district of increase for the precincts that had one of the top five stop and Frisk Centre city? It was a common conversation whenever we were in. The communities family members were concerned about their loved ones about their children about their grandchildren. Stories that you hear about children being stopped six. Seven eight ten times Just for being of color in. It's just it's it's just really deplorable right to think about the long term consequences of those young people. That's their experience with the police department. That's their experience with criminal justice. That's what we all deserve safe communities and you can just whole cloth right criminalize whole community or segments of our population
