Why I’m Running for Mayor
I moved to New York City 25 years ago. I came of age, fell in love, and became a father here. Seeing our City the way it is now breaks my heart. What we do in the coming months will determine our city’s trajectory for decades.
I am running for mayor because I see a crisis — and I believe I can help.
We need to launch the largest basic income program in history, invest in a human-centered economy, return to fact-based governance, and create an accessible healthcare system. We need to do all this while enacting accountable and smart policing, building affordable housing, closing our city’s digital divide, modernizing transportation and city services, and more. We will move New York forward — together.
The Democratic primary is June 22nd, 2021. I can’t wait for you to join us on our campaign to revive and rebuild our city.
Keep in touch.
Andrew’s Plans to Move NYC Forward
A Safe and Fair City
New York City must be a safe place to live, work and play for all. It is unacceptable that our neighbors, particularly Black and Brown New Yorkers, fear those who are meant to serve and protect us. We deserve a public safety system that both keeps us safe and treats all New Yorkers with dignity.
Cash Relief & COVID Recovery
Our way of life has been devastated by the pandemic. Accelerating our city’s comeback is critical. New York City must be the first city to come back safely, and it starts by implementing the largest cash relief program in the history of the United States.
An Affordable City
To truly address the poverty and economic insecurity facing countless New Yorkers, we must begin by addressing the City’s staggering housing and affordability crisis. In a city where more than 400,000 tenants call public housing home, and 44% living in market-rate apartments are rent burdened, we must take bold action to drastically grow the City’s affordable housing supply while also reinvesting in NYCHA.
