My campaign was and still is public housing. Since 1988 I have lived in New York and since 1989 I have lived at Wagner Housing. The types of changes I have noticed in my community are two supermarkets’ that are privately owned. To me, I consider this a bad thing because the prices are outrages. The vendors are no longer in the streets because of it. In terms of crime, Wagner housing is the worse development.

The lack of decent affordable housing is a concern throughout Westchester County, but here in Ossining the situation has become critical for families making less than $50,000 a year. Limited housing opportunities affect everyone: the elderly, struggling to survive on a fixed income; young people just entering the work force; and those of us still struggling to bounce back from the 2008 recession.
