  1. Expedite rezonings. Approve all pending and new projects for luxury and affordable buildings. Privatize NYCHA. We need all of this in order to generate jobs as the city is currently broke and we need to bring it back. Unfortunately, we cannot focus on social assistance if we don’t have money. We need to generate money by creating jobs and tax revenues so that we can then also assist the ones in need.

  2. Bottom line: zoning changes won’t solve the affordable housing crisis. Never has. De Blasio’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program was followed by more and not less homelessness. The growth machine doesn’t work for those who need housing the most.
