Our District 32 Key Issues

Affordable Housing

Our community’s residents help make Queens one of the most diverse places in the world, which as we know is what makes it so amazing. After all, this is the reason my parents were attracted to the area. In addition to being a diverse, welcoming area, the community offered affordable housing. Whereas the people in the area are still welcoming, the property tax increases over the last decade have made it much harder to buy or maintain a home here. Property taxes rose at triple the rate of the average taxpayer’s income. That simply is not sustainable. Kaled will address this, and work towards options that will ensure your ability to stay here.

The District also lacks affordable energy-efficient housing, which impacts both the environment and housing sustainability. To help offset this Kaled will advocate for inclusionary zoning policies which require all projects above a certain size to meet energy efficiency standards, to include a percentage of affordable units; and promote a greater range of housing type.

In order to keep our neighborhoods vital, attractive, and growing we must make them affordable for everyone. Seniors on fixed incomes who have called their neighborhood home for decades should not have to choose between paying property taxes or moving out of a neighborhood they call home.  Nor should a young couple be forced to look outside the city because they want to start a family. Kaled will protect every generation’s right to make our community their home, regardless of their socio-economic status.

Community Policing

Our community’s residents deserve to feel just as safe as anyone living in the wealthiest parts of our city. Kaled promises to enhance your overall quality of life by ensuring that our police department is preserving the peace, protecting the people, reducing fear, maintaining order, all while treating each and every one of you with respect.

Education Reform

Every child deserves to receive a first-class education. Kaled understands the issues facing our community regarding the education system. Kaled’s son had to transfer three times during high school due to the difficult and confusing application process. Our district is in dire need of efficient and equitable enrollment practices.

Putting People first!

Kaled’s vision for District 32 is to enhance the quality of life in our community, continually ensuring that this a place where people want to live, work, and conduct business. For more than 25 years, Kaled’s parents co-owned a small business here.
