Stopping privatization of our city parks, public water or transit
Clean air, water and food is a human right. We should not allow private corporations to control resources that are invaluable to all of us.
Privatization of the commons is not the answer to getting our utilities to offer better service. These institutions such as PWSA and Port Authority are critically underfunded. We need to accept that these institutions staying public are in our best interests. This does not mean that they should not be accountable or expected to streamline and innovate to offer good service but we the people need ownership of these critical institutions.
What I can do as a senator:
I would do everything I can to make sure these institutions have adequate funding and will fight and call out any legislator trying to undermine these important resources.
