"When I’m mayor, unconstitutional stops will end. That means the number of stops will go dramatically down."
“Police officers should wear small lapel cameras to protect themselves from false accusations... We’re gonna say we’re not gonna round up whole neighborhoods of people; too many people are being stopped who’ve done nothing wrong."
"Apply the correct training... We have to make sure New York City stays safe, but we don’t have to sacrifice our civil rights to get that done."
"Stop-and-frisk is unconstitutional. Move away from stop-and-frisk and toward community policing."
A candidate who claims to support a "full package of reforms to end the stop-and-frisk era" and says the there is a "need to ban racial profiling, need that to be a matter of city law."
I demand full transparency from people in power.
But if I did, I’d want it to be the "most progressive” penis in the race.
But if I did, I'd want it to be a penis that's backed by the teacher's union.
But if I did, I'd want it to be a penis that supports the full legalization of marijuana for medicinal and recreational use.
Celebs like Susan Sarandon and Alec Baldwin align with my values, but an endorsement from SEIU 1199 is cool too.
George Takei and Neil Patrick Harris know what’s up, but an endorsement from EMILY’s List is cool too.
I’d rather my candidate be endorsed by Operating Engineers and the Correction Officers Benevolent Association (COBA) than some celeb.
I’d rather my candidate be endorsed by the Amsterdam News and New York firefighters than some celeb.
My candidate doesn't need any endorsements other than those from voters who will pull the lever next to my candidate's name.
A candidate who wants to focus on teacher training and move away from "obsessive teaching to the test."
“We need to look at early childhood education and after-school. That’s why my tax plan focuses on pre-K for every child in the city. If we don’t lay that foundation, our children won’t be able to achieve at the level necessary."
"We gotta focus much less on testing and much more on teaching so students can learn."
“We need to stop this focus on standardized testing, this obsession with standardized testing. We need more of a focus on comprehension and critical thinking... Where schools are failing, we need to work to turn them around.”
"We have to restore the learning environment in each and every one of our schools. Let’s start letting teachers teach, let principals lead, and let’s have a school system that’s actually lead by a chancellor that has some educational background."
Those who make more than $500,000 a year pay more; those who make below it pay less.
Pay 1% more if you make more than $1 million, get a 10% tax cut if you make less than $150,000.
From 3.9% to 4.3%.
"Tax increases aren’t off the table but they’re a last resort, not a first option."
“There is no way you can rule out the potential that you might have to raise taxes if you’re mayor. And if we have to raise taxes, I’m going to do that progressively."
Because I don't own a plane.
Bradley Beach is a perfect place to unwind.
Then take a trip down to Fenway to watch the Sox!
Reliving my college days would be awesome, man. But seriously, I've never smoked pot.
"Because this city used to make a promise with us — that every single New Yorker can have the opportunity to succeed. And I’m going to make damn sure that that promise is fulfilled."
"Working together, the best days for the city lie ahead of us for all of us.”
"The challenges facing the middle class and those struggling to make it have never been higher, and I think New York deserves someone who will fight for them every single day."
"We need to end this tale of two cities and we can’t leave any New Yorker behind."
"We need a leader that the public can trust and that can lead everyone in the city and work for each and every New Yorker."
Gotta generate excitement.
Because the parade is about the people, not about the candidate.
Because the parade is about the people, but you gotta stand out with a little color. Yes, gray counts.
It's conservative in style, but the shade gradation is fairly progressive.
Because SENSE is the key word in fashion sense.
