City Council Candidate Nikki Lucas Says This is Not The Time To Sit Back and Believe The System is Now Fair After Chauvin Guilty Verdict

East New York City Council Candidate Nikki Lucas for New York City Council submitted a powerful statement to NYC Newswire, calling for the time to go "full steam ahead with Real Police Reform Legislation". She says legislation that stop cops from choking us to death is not a legislative win. It has to stop at the basic daily harassment and it will not get to a choke or death. She adds "We can no longer sit back while our communities are disrespected, harassed and assaulted on a daily basis." Read her full statement at the link below. #nycpolicereform #nycpolitics

5 Mayoral Candidates Support Police Reform Legislation But Eric Adams and Scott Stringer Are Missing from the List

OpEd: Senator Kevin Parker and Assembly Member Catalina Cruz NY put forth a proposed legislation that is a step toward Police Reform, but two of the NYC Mayoral Candidates are not in support of this legislation that isn't even controversial. If they cannot support this legislation then there is no way they will bring about police reform if they become the Mayor of NYC. The Mayoral candidates not supporting this legislation are Eric Adams and Scott M. Stringer

Everyone, who is honest, in New York City by now has to know that there is a problem with policing when it comes to the black community. Blacks are harassed daily by police officers, and sometimes assaulted, or even murdered at the hands of police.

Just a post to let everyone know that a good man from up north is running for governor. Not a discussion or debate.....Just a post to let people know that maybe for once we can get someone in Albany that cares about the people of our great state. Check out Sherriff Carpinelli's page. He is from Lewis County and running for governor against Cuomo. Very humble man from up north who is completely for the people of this state. Like his page and invite friends.

Hi all! I am sharing a public opinion poll focused on the mayoral race and issues important to you in the community. It only takes a few minutes, does not collect any personal information, and will help a student-led firm and the candidates learn more about community views! http://fullerton.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2hlHZPJL7OwUDxI We are low on responses from the Bronx and Staten Island so really hoping you will be willing to help us out and this won't get taken down! There is no need to be an expert on politics or have researched any of the candidates or have strong opinions about them -- looking for responses from everyday New Yorkers! Thanks!

Good afternoon, my name is Timothy Wilson and I am posting on behalf of Elevation Strategies a grassroots, minority-led, and student-based political consulting firm centered in New York City. We have created a short survey to collect the opinions of the citizens of NYC and are aiming to have 2,000 respondents. This survey will help show candidates how they can best serve their community when elected by identifying the issues that are most important to their constituency. It would be a huge help if anyone registered to vote in NYC would consider taking 5 minutes to respond to our survey. It would go a long way in expressing to the candidates we work for and others the concerns New Yorkers have in the present moment. You can use the link below to fill out the survey:

"New York City is on the verge of bringing real change to our elections. The City Charter Commission is considering Ranked Choice Voting for the November 2019 ballot. RCV is a simple but powerful change that gives voters more choices by letting us rank candidates in order of preference. It helps alleviate the "spoiler effect" and also saves taxpayer money by avoiding expensive runoff elections. RCV is used in cities around the country, and in the state of Maine. This is our chance to bring it to the ballot in New York City. We have to keep up the pressure on the commission and the appointers to show that improving NYC elections with RCV is a priority for New Yorkers. Join local grassroots partners and volunteers for two crucial events that will lead up to the 2019 Charter Revision Commission decision on which proposals will go before voters this November. 1. FRDAY, JUNE 7TH AT 10AM - Press Conference + Rally on the NYC City Hall Steps: RSVP here: https://volunteer.represen t.us/nyc_press_conference_20190607 2. WEDNESDAY JUNE 12TH AT 6PM - Final Charter Commission Public Hearing and Vote. RSVP here: https://volunteer.represent.us/nyc_public_hearing We couldn't have made it this far without the support of New Yorkers like you. Let's bring real change to our elections. P.S. If you won't take my word for it, check out what Actor and Activist Omar Epps has to say about RCV for NYC: https://twitter.com/representus/status/1134571482925948928 New York City could be the next major city to use #RankedChoiceVoting -- but first @Charter2019NYC needs to put it on the ballot. RCV gives voters more choices, encourages elections based on ideas, and gets rid of costly runoff elections. #NYC #RCV https://t.co/3uzLEMl7tF
