Maria Ordoñez's Platform
Council District 7 is in crisis and our politicians are not standing up for us. We need true representation in government. We need a council member that will fight for the people.
Here is what WE can Achieve Together!
We are facing a climate crisis and we must act now to protect the most vulnerable, disadvantaged, and impacted by climate change. Environmental justice must be at the forefront of our legislation to ensure that we have a sustainable future for all New Yorkers. It's time for a Green New Deal for NYC, for a more just, sustainable, and equitable city.
HOUSING AS A RIGHT
We need to put New Yorkers above developers and profit because everyone deserves the opportunity to live in a dignified place. Housing is a right and nobody should be unable to afford a place they call home.
A CITY HALL FOR THE PEOPLE
We need to ensure that the voices of the working class are finally heard at City Hall. We need to ensure that our representatives are ready to stand up to corporate greed, fight the establishment, and build a working class movement that is ready to fight for the interests of the many. This is why we need a City Hall for the people.
EDUCATION FOR ALL
In Council District 7 public education is extremely vital for our children and high-quality public education is, more than ever, necessary in our underfunded working class communities of color.
A HUMANE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
It is time that we transform our criminal justice system. Currently our criminal justice system protects private property instead of people of color and working class people. We must end the criminalization of our communities, end over-policing, end mass incarceration, demand police accountability, and invest in our communities.
As the parent of two dogs I believe that all living creatures deserve rights, protection, and justice. For too long, animals, like humans, have been held down by a system of oppression that abuses and exploits them. We must advocate and institute legislation that will ensure legal rights, protections, and safety for all animals.
