Support Our Seniors

Seniors are the most admirable and deserving members of our community, yet their wants and concerns are often unfairly overlooked by politicians and even society. This is why I’m making the needs of seniors one of my top priorities in this campaign, so that all seniors in our community can live long, healthy, happy, and dignified.

AS YOUR ASSEMBLYMEMBER, I WILL FIGHT TO:

  • Create additional tax breaks for those over 65 living on a fixed income. Gentrification and inflation have made the cost of living skyrocket and we need to ensure that seniors are not being priced out of their homes and communities.
 
  • Build and implement more affordable senior housing in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, including assisted living facilities and nursing homes. There is a drastic shortage of senior housing in our district and an increasing senior citizen population that must be considered.
 
  • Construct the currently-proposed nursing home at the former Greenpoint Hospital campus.
 
  • Improve traffic safety and signaling in areas around seniors centers and senior housing.
 
  • Combat age discrimination in employment by banning arbitration agreements and non-disclosure clauses between seniors and their employers. 
 
  • Protect public-employee pension funds.
